It’s been a hectic offseason for the New Orleans Saints.

Sadly, they’ve been forced to part ways with several impactful veterans. The likes of Emmanuel Sanders, Kwon Alexander, and Janoris Jenkins were all released, and those three will create sizable holes that will be difficult to fill.

The New Orleans Saints are typically active during the draft. 2021 should be no different, and here is who could be on the hot seat.

Thankfully, the Saints have the draft to make amends for the gutting of their roster. Over the last few seasons, the Saints have drafted well, but they’ve done more than just that. The Saints have also made big-time trades.

In 2018, they traded up in the first round to draft Marcus Davenport with a top-20 pick.

This past season, they traded up to gain a second third-round pick. Both Adam Trautman and Zack Baun were taken in the third round. They also traded back into the trade to snag quarterback Tommy Stevens.

While most of these transactions are picks for picks, the Saints could easily be looking to deal a few players this time around. That said, let’s dive into four players we could see the team trading on draft night.
