3 wide receivers the New Orleans Saints should consider drafting

3 of 3

Number Three: Laviska Shenault, Colorado

Laviska Shenault is that one blue-collar guy that nobody is really talking about. Shenault, a 6-foot-2, 220-pound wide receiver, spent the last three years playing for the Colorado Buffaloes.

Shenault is your stereotypical star that didn’t see the spotlight on a bad team as his Colorado team only produced 13 wins in three years. In those three years, Shenault had 149 receptions for 1,943 yards, and ten touchdowns while maintaining an average of 13.0 yards per reception.

Shenault was also effective running the ball with 42 carries for 280 yards and seven touchdowns. He was also selected to the All Pac-12 first team in 2018 and the All Pac-12 second team is 2019.

The star receiver showcased his strong hands at Colorado, helping him make contested catches, something Brees would love in a new target. Shenault is also a very good route runner and excels at tracking the ball and is known for displaying his swift body control.

Shenault is a hands catcher and doesn’t use his body to catch the ball. Once he catches the ball, he shows off his athleticism and versatility, often making opposing tacklers miss.

Shenault is more than worthy of a first-round selection and things could get interesting at pick number 24 if the Saints fall in love with his playmaking abilities.
