The Saints should avoid WR, Terrace Marshall Jr., in the first round.
Terrace Marshall, who is coming out of LSU, played with now Bengals star Joe Burrow in 2019 and caught 46 passes for 671 yards and 13 touchdowns with Justin Jefferson and Ja’Marr Chase on their way to a National Championship.
This year, without Burrow, Chase, or Jefferson, Marshall still put up 48 receptions for 731 yards and 10 touchdowns. He is a big playmaker at 6-foot-3, 200 pounds. There are still things that Marshall needs to work on and if he does he could be a quality receiver.
However, the need for a wide receiver should be surpassed by the need for a linebacker or cornerback. I’m not saying Marshall isn’t a first-round pick, but he has been the most linked receiver to the black and gold and the team doesn’t need a receiver as first priority.
The Saints have a vast list of needs heading into this draft, but they have to be prioritized. The linebacker and cornerback positions don’t even have starters yet. The first-round pick needs to be used on a starter, not a backup.
