3 players the New Orleans Saints should trade up to acquire
Jerry Jeudy, Oklahoma
One of the worst positions for the New Orleans Saints last year was the wide receiver depth. Michael Thomas caught more than 40% of Drew Brees’ completions and that number is absurdly high for a Super Bowl-caliber team.
Before free agency, the answer to the wide receiver question was all New Orleans Saints’ fans wanted to know. After signing Emmanuel Sanders, fans were relieved to have another top-quality receiver in the core, but he is not a long term answer to our problem.
Jerry Jeudy could be the long term solution to the wide receiver problem for the Saints. They only downside is that they would have to trade up from the No. 24 pick to roughly the No. 11 or 12 picks in from of the Las Vegas Raiders.
However, in the long run, Jeudy could be worth the cost. Last year alone, Jeudy caught 77 passes for over 1,100 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns, and that wasn’t even his best year in college. He would definitely be the answer alongside Michael Thomas.
