New Orleans Saints, Chiefs tied for fewest 2020 NFL Draft picks
The 2020 NFL Draft is where the New Orleans Saints are going to thrive in the offseason, but will they continue to do so with only five pick selections?
From the beginning of the modern draft era, the New Orleans Saints have always been a storied team walking into an NFL Draft. Even tied for the fewest selections in this year’s draft, it will be no different for the Saints’ scouting team.
Going all the way back to 2017 when they got Kamara in the third round, the New Orleans Saints have always made near-perfect selections. Only one player from the 2017 NFL Draft where the Saints had more than seven picks, does not currently play for the team.
However, it is still a bit concerning that, if this is the most important part of the offseason for New Orleans, they don’t have more selections. It also means that the five they do currently own will leave no marginal room for error from the scouting department.
The Saints are relying on seeing a wide receiver, offensive tackle, and at least one secondary member drafted this year out of five picks. But you would also have to imagine that the Saints will make necessary moves to regain picks back.
Whether that would be trading back in the first round for another first-round pick and a second-round pick or if that would be a first-round pick for two second-round picks, either way, the Saints are most likely going to be searching for a two for one trade partner.
If you are a New Orleans Saints fan and you only had five picks in the draft, there are no better hands you could be in than the Saints’ scouting team. They are arguably the best in the entire NFL at what they do each and every year.
I have no doubt going into this year, that even with the fewest picks, the New Orleans Saints will walk out atop the NFL with one of the best drafts. They are the team that will always rise to the top in the NFL Draft.
