New Orleans Saints: 3 positions that still need attention post-draft
The Saints have made several offseason moves in an effort to fill gaps created by the mass exodus of roster players in order to get under the cap before the season started. They have done a great job so far between all of them.
They started by re-signing cornerback PJ Williams and quarterback Jameis Winston, which was arguably one of the most important signings that the team will do all year given the retirement of future Hall-of-Fame quarterback Drew Brees.
The New Orleans Saints had a good draft and filled some of their depth chart holes, but they did not fill them all — here are the rest.
They also brought in defensive end Tanoh Kpassagnon from Kansas City, fullback Alex Armah from Carolina, and tight end Nick Vannett from Denver. While those signings certainly filled holes in the roster, they are far from complete.
New Orleans then went out and filled some of their holes in the draft by selecting Paulson Adebo, Pete Werner, Ian Book, and Kawaan Baker. However, for some of those positions a single third or later round addition will not be enough to sustain.
Here are the top three positions that Sean Payton and the team still need to address after the draft has concluded.
