The New Orleans Saints have plenty of needs that need to be addressed in the draft after an earlier exit from the NFL playoffs.
The New Orleans Saints left the 2020 NFL Playoffs in the Wild Card round with a shocking defeat by the No. 6 Minnesota Vikings. Because of that, there are obvious weaknesses that will need to be addressed next season.
The New Orleans Saints need a wide receiver; they need help in the secondary; they need to address any possibility of current players leaving vacancies in positions. They could acquire some of these needs in the free agency period as well.
However, free agency will by far cost more than will the NFL Draft. The New Orleans Saints have a knack of using their draft picks to their advantage. In the 2017 draft alone, out of seven draftees, the Saints currently roster six of them and five of them start.
This draft could be another quality one for New Orleans Saints. This first-round pick could mean a superstar like Michael Thomas or Alvin Kamara in the future. Therefore, the Saints scouting staff have a hard decision to make going into this draft class.
With the 24th pick in the first round, the Saints have a good amount of talent to choose from. Here are the top ten players that could be on the board for the New Orleans Saints to choose from at that position in the draft.
