The outspoken leader of the New Orleans Saints defense wants the team to make a huge draft-day trade to propel them into a top-five pick.

The New Orleans Saints have been said to have virtually no hole to fill in this upcoming draft. However, that is not a place a team wants to find themselves. Nonchalant picks are made when teams think there are no needs.

The New Orleans Saints have needs.

They need another quarterback to replace the loss of Teddy Bridgewater and someone to back up the 40+-year-old Drew Brees. They have been linked to rumors to trade up for Tua Tagovailoa or Jordan Love.

The New Orleans Saints need another linebacker to round out the core. With the injuries our linebackers had last year, they will need all the help they can get and it is not coming from Manti T’eo or whoever they can pick up off the waivers at the time.

The New Orleans Saints also need help at the wide receiver position. That might sound crazy especially after the acquisition of Emmanuel Sanders. However, Sanders is a short-term win-now solution; he is not the distant future. They need a long-term solution to their receivers.

Saints’ stars Terron Armstead and Cameron Jordan trust their coaching staff and scouting staff fully with whatever they decide to do on Draft day, but that does not stop the duo from having their own opinions about what the Saints should do.

Armstead was simple. He proclaimed that Justin Jefferson, WR from LSU; Patrick Queen, LB from LSU; or Henry Ruggs, WR from Alabama, would not slip past the Saints at the No. 24 first-round pick the team has.

Jordan, on the other hand, was completely in his own world when he came with his suggestion. Jordan stated that he wanted to “bet the draft.” Essentially, Jordan wants to trade three picks for the star linebacker from Clemson projected to go inside of the top five.

Who Jordan wants to make this trade with was left unknown, but to sum it up, you are going to need a lot more than a first, second, and third-round pick to move up into a top-five selection. Although, not a bad idea, it would just need to rework a little.

Realistically, the New Orleans Saints would have to trade at least three first-round picks to move up that far including the No. 24 pick. On top of that, it would probably also take some later round picks as well.
