Saints: 3 first-round picks to avoid in the upcoming draft
The Saints should avoid QB, Kyle Trask in the first round.
Both Winston and Hill are on short-term contracts. That could give way to Trask being the future of the Saints. Trask wasn’t a star in his freshman season, but he broke out into one in his sophomore year and carried that into his junior year.
He is leaving Florida after three years finishing with 552 completions for 7,386 yards and 69 touchdowns with only 15 interceptions. He also did all that in only 27 collegiate games. With the right coaching staff behind him, Trask has the makings of an NFL star.
Despite all the interest that the Saints have shown in Trask, they need to stay away from him, especially in the first round of this draft. Payton has already said that they have found their future quarterback and he is already in the room.
He’s even made comparisons of Taysom Hill to the likes of the legendary Steve Young. With an arm like Winston who is just 27, he’s not going to pass up on a chance to make one of them the long-term future of the franchise.
Why use a first-round pick on a player that they have no intention of making their future?
