Laviska Shenault, Colorado
A wide receiver comes at no surprise here with this selection even after the offseason that the New Orleans Saints have had. Shenault could be the long term answer. This is what McKenna had to say about his prediction.
“Michael Thomas proved he can carry a passing offense. But the Saints may want to find a complement for him for fear of overloading him in a second consecutive season.
Shenault is big and physical, and he managed solid production in an underwhelming offense. Because he dealt with injuries in 2019, his 2018 season is the best representation of his potential: 86 catches, 1,011 yards, six touchdowns.”
Emmanuel Sanders is a quick fix to the Saints wide receiver problems, but unfortunately, he is not the long term solution. He is in his 30’s and even last year with the 49ers, his per-game average minus his two biggest games weren’t great.
This could be just the guy the Saints are looking for toward the future.
