Tyson Campbell, University of Georgia

Junior, Tyson Campbell has been a force at the University of Georgia. Campbell is the only option on this list that has the possibility of being drafted at a higher team’s pick than the Saints draft at the No. 28 pick.

Campbell had 29 tackles, 2.5 tackles for a loss, one interception, and five passes defended during his junior year in 2020. He also only played 10 games that year. With all the above-mentioned news surrounding Marshon Lattimore, Campbell could be even more crucial.

Campbell has the skill to do either of the aforementioned jobs. He has the talent to play alongside Lattimore and be a huge asset to the team, but he also had the skill level to take Lattimore’s place if he sees any absence this season.

Right now, most mock drafts have Tyson Campbell falling somewhere around the late first to the early second round. If the Saints can get Campbell, they should jump on it, his instincts are top-notch for where he is getting drafted.
