Number Two: Trade Up In the Draft

The New Orleans Saints could opt to seek one of the NFL Draft’s top talents and trade up into the top 15 and select a star player.

The Saints do not have a lot of ammunition, but a team with multiple first-round picks such as the Miami Dolphins or Jacksonville Jaguars would likely be open to creating more picks for the future due to the fact that their team is not likely to compete in 2020.

The Saints could be aggressive to find a star that they truly crave, potential LSU WR Justin Jefferson.

If the Saints packaged a 2021 first with a couple of other picks and offered it to the Jacksonville Jaguars for the ninth overall pick and drafted a player like Isaiah Simmons they would get a solid A+ from most fans.

The Saints are a team with no glaring need aside from a number two wide receiver. They can afford to move up in the draft given their lack of needs.

The Saints have traded up in drafts recently as they moved up several picks a few years ago to grab Marcus Davenport, and it has paid off so far, although they likely wish it would’ve had a better turnover.

I would not be surprised if the Saints give up future picks to acquire the needed talent to make a legitimate run at the Super Bowl in 2020.
