Draft or sign a wide receiver
The biggest weak spot for the New Orleans Saints this year was by far the wide receiver position. Michael Thomas, the No. 1 receiver, broke records because he was the only one Brees had to throw the ball too. Next year, that has to change.
The best way to do that without using all the cap space on a big-name wide receiver is to bring one in in the draft. The Saints have the No. 24 overall pick in the draft and the wide receiver position is probably the deepest in the draft. Therefore, they will have a big selection.
The prime candidates are LSU’s Justin Jefferson, Colorado’s Laviska Shenault, Clemson’s Tee Higgins, TCU’s Jalen Reagor, and Arizona State’s Brandon Aiyuk. Any of these would prime candidates to be a successful No. 2 receiver opposite Michael Thomas.
The weight of the decisions that have to be made for the New Orleans Saints is hefty. However, these six things should start the Saints on the right track toward making another run at a Super Bowl for Drew Brees next year.
