The draft?

Drafting a quarterback isn’t out of the question, but with the No. 24 pick, selecting either Joe Burrow, Tua Tagovailoa or Justin Hebert won’t happen.

Those three players will most likely be top 10 picks to teams that are in much worse situations than the Saints.

There are many questions regarding this situation, but with the Saints’ front office having recent draft success coinciding with playoff appearances, New Orleans will be able to get through it.

Addressing positional needs such as wide receiver, offensive line and cornerback will be tougher to solve, but all of these moves pale in comparison to the quarterback room shakeup coming soon.

Success starts with a team having an above-average quarterback in the NFL, as few teams in today’s pass-happy league are able to take a below-average quarterback and elevate the overall team.
