Trevon Moehrig, S, Texas Christian University

This second prospect and No. 3 ranked safety according to CBS is the purest safety and has been the most linked to the Saints in the first round. However, Moehrig has fallen the draft boards over the last couple of weeks potentially putting him in the mid to late second round.

Even after reports of the Saints trying to re-sign Marcus Williams, that doesn’t necessarily mean that they will. If they don’t, they will turn to the NFL Draft to try and replace him on the team or replace the depth on the team.

In 2019, Moehrig left with 62 tackles, 11 passed defended, four interceptions, one fumble recovery, and two forced fumbles. Moehrig has been all over the field for the Horned Frogs which makes him an excellent pick for the Saints here.

Moehrig is probably the best ball disruptor on this list. He has also proven to be able to come up from patrolling the field and get at the quarterback and holding the runner behind the line of scrimmage; although, he can be reckless at times.
