The Secondary

Assuming Janoris Jenkins or Eli Apple are in New Orleans for the start of 2020, the Saints will not require a stud cornerback, but rather someone who can add depth, play nickel and contribute on special teams.

However, Apple will be a free agent this offseason as well, and it may not make sense for the Saints to retain him. Like with Peat, the discussions with Apple will likely boil down to how much requests.

Amik Robertson of Louisiana Tech is a local talent who is projecting as a mid-round pick and figures to be a slot corner in the NFL. Robertson possesses above-average ball skills and is forgoing his senior season after posting five interceptions, 16 passes defended and 60 tackles.

The re-signing of free agents this offseason will dictate how the Saints approach the draft in April and the future of the quarterback position has to take priority.  If Brees does intend to play another season (or two), it is paramount that we add a second wide receiver.

Next. 10 players the Saints should consider with the 24th pick. dark

The rest will take care of itself.
