Saints Draft: 5 blockbuster trades to get picks No. 6-10
Saints potential trade to No. 10 with the Dallas Cowboys
This will be the easiest of the trades to make sense because it will take the least draft capital to get up to No. 10. The Saints don’t have much personnel to offer so most of these trades will come via draft capital for the same.
According to CBS Sports, the almost unanimous decision for the Cowboys at No. 10 is cornerback Patrick Surtain. With the team in need of a cornerback, this would be worth it seeing that Surtain is the best cornerback in the draft.
Current No. 10 projection: CB, Patrick Surtain II, Alabama
According to DraftTek, the value of the No. 10 pick is 1,300. The Saints No. 28 pick is worth 660. Therefore, the team would have to add in their No. 60 pick (300), their No. 98 pick (108), and their No. 105 pick (84).
You could also venture into the team’s 2022 picks to not give up as much this year.
It would end up being a four-for-one trade-up. The cornerback that the Saints would be able to get at No. 28 is likely Caleb Farley. Is Surtain four picks better than Farley? I don’t think so, but Sean Payton and the front office might.
