1. Wide Receiver

No one should be shocked by this.

The Saints entered the 2021 season and actually thought that guys like Marquez Callaway and Chris Hogan (who isn’t on the team anymore) would be enough to get this offense moving. Well, they couldn’t have been more wrong.

New Orleans hasn’t taken a receiver in the first round since they grabbed Michael Thomas out of Ohio State in 2017 and that, up until last year, had gone pretty well for them. Why then, are they so afraid to draft another receiver?

This year’s class offers plenty of big names at the position, including two Ohio State receivers in Chris Olave and Garrett Wilson. The Saints could also look at Treylon Burks of Arkansas or Jameison Williams out of Alabama. Any of these receivers would be better than who’s currently on New Orleans’ roster.

I don’t care if they pass up on another talented player to take a receiver, the Saints HAVE to take one in the draft in 2022 and if they don’t, they once again, only have themselves to blame.
