In Ruiz, Baun, and Trautman, the Saints hopefully drafted three future starters for them. Considering that they are tight on cap space, that is important. It’s almost necessary for them to have a solid future for the Saints to be in a good position moving forward.
If I had to rank my confidence in each player moving forward, it would go as such:
- Cesar Ruiz
- Adam Trautman
- Zach Baun
- Malcolm Roach
- Marquez Callaway
- Tommy Stevens
With a team filled with veterans, New Orleans attacked this draft class with an eye for the future- they targeted developmental options.
I am excited to see what the future holds for their top-three picks, and would advise Saints fans not overanalyzing their rookie contributions- whatever they provide is the icing on the cake.
