With the 24th pick in the 2020 NFL Draft…

The Saints could also address the cornerback need in the 2020 NFL Draft.

The Saints currently hold the 24th pick in the NFL Draft, and while Alabama corner Trevon Diggs or Ohio State star Jeffrey Okudah likely won’t be available, there are definitely some studs who will be.

CJ Henderson from Florida is a guy that I have had paired with the Saints since the start of last season. The 6-foot-1 corner from Miami was projected to be the top corner in the 2020 NFL Draft before an injury set him back a bit.

In his three-year at Florida, Henderson tallied 93 tackles, 19 passes defended, four sacks, six interceptions, and two defensive touchdowns. He was also a reliable returner as he had two return touchdowns as well.

CJ is the kind of player Sean Payton would drool over, and if he is available at No. 24, I’m sure Sean wouldn’t hesitate to pull the trigger. One more player the Saints should consider is Kristian Fulton from LSU.

Next. Individually grading the team’s dominant offensive line. dark

The Louisiana native would slide into the culture perfectly with his 6-foot-2, 192-pound frame. He played well as a senior, helping lead the LSU Tigers to a National Championship. Fulton would be a great option if Henderson is unavailable.
