130th overall pick – WR, Justin Jefferson, Louisiana State Tigers
Fresh off of a national championship victory, Justin Jefferson could be the late-round wide receiver target that the New Orleans Saints need to acquire. Under the right coaching, Jefferson could be a Pro-Bowl caliber wide receiver one day.
The New Orleans Saints lacked a complete wide receiving core outside of superstar Michael Thomas, and now, it is time to change that. Hopefully, they will attack someone like Amari Cooper in free agency and then Jefferson becomes someone they can take their time and mold.
The junior wide receiver broke out this year totaling 111 catches for 1,540 yards and 18 touchdowns. All of those are career highs for the young, talented receiver. He has the potential and the Saints have the coaches, that is why this is a huge acquisition.
As stated before, the New Orleans Saints know how to use their draft picks wisely.
These picks in the first four rounds acquire players at all the necessary positions that the Saints need. Give them a little time to develop and the Saints could be looking at another young core of talent.
