Overview

This is a very important draft for the Saints, as they don’t have much financial flexibility, nor do they have much in the way of young, cost-controlled talent.

Thus, trading down and accumulating more draft capital is a prerequisite for them- they need as much depth as possible. When picking, though, they need to target valuable payers.

That makes receivers like Rondale Moore, Rashod Bateman, and Ka’Darius Toney, while safety Trevon Moehrig is heavily linked to them and also would be optimal.

On the other hand, linebackers such as Zaven Collins and Nick Bolton would make much less sense with their first-round pick.

A linebacker, developmental player, or a second-round quarterback like Kyle Trask are the types of luxury picks they cannot afford to make.

They need to maximize every draft selection they can, and if they are able to add needed cost-controlled youth, perhaps they can turn around their future in a hurry!
