The Saints might just be in the mood to surprise everyone with their No. 28 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, here are three wild choices that they could make.

We have already talked about potential first-round options for the Saints to draft at their No. 28 pick. Those guys included Jaycee Horn, Nick Bolton, Zaven Collins, Terrace Marshall, Trevon Moehrig, and Levi Onwuzurike.

The Saints have a lot of ways that they could go. They need positions to improve, and they will undoubtedly have more positions open up when they can’t re-sign free agents. After all Pro Football Focus doesn’t have the Saints signing a single top-150 free agent.

However, last year, we talked about all the guys we could see the Saints drafting, and then when it came time for the pick, they went with an “out-of-the-box” option in Cesar Ruiz. Who’s to say that they can’t do that again this year?

You never really know what Sean Payton and his staff are thinking when it comes to the draft. All of these crazy draft suggestions come from the second-round where the Saints would stretch to draft someone that they thought could be the one.

Here are three “out-of-the-box” draft options for the Saints in the first round.
