2020 NFL Draft: Detailing a four-round New Orleans Saints’ mock draft
88th overall pick – G/T, Netane Muti, Fresno State Bulldogs
The New Orleans Saints had one of the best offensive lines in the entire NFL last season with the exception of one player — Andrus Peat. Yes, Peat made the Pro-Bowl as an alternative, but statistics show that it was a mistake.
According to Pro Football Focus Saints’ OL 2019 season grades, Peat was the only Saint to grade below a 75 — He graded at a 48.7. Looking at the rest of the offensive line, that is atrocious. All four others graded 80.8, 78.0, 75.8, and 91.0. Peat failed this season.
Therefore, it is time to let Peat walk in free agency and look for a replacement. Fresno State’s Netane Muti could be that replacement. He has been injury-prone, but the Bulldogs’ captain can still get the job done on the interior.
The junior guard has the possibility to be an anchor on the offensive line. He has relatively good athleticism and specializes in the run block. His versatility to jump from guard to tackle is impressive as well. The Saints could really use a coachable guy like Muti.
