Round 5: Pick 160 – JoJo Domann, LB (Nebraska)
Something great about Nebraska’s JoJo Domann is how versatile the dude is. The Husker is capable of playing both linebacker and in the secondary. He’s even listed as a corner in other draft simulators.
Domann was one of Nebraska’s brightest stars during his five years in Lincoln. This past year was his best though, evidenced by his 71 tackles (nine for loss), three defended passes, two sacks, two interceptions, and two forced fumbles.
The Saints might lose Kwon Alexander this offseason and if they do, Domann is a guy who can fill in not only to play linebacker but to also help out in the secondary. He’d be Dennis Allen’s dream player (whether Allen is the head coach or the defensive coordinator).
Round 6: Pick 196 – Cam Taylor-Britt, CB (Nebraska)
I didn’t intend to double up on Nebraska prospects here, the board simply just fell that way. The next Cornhusker to join the Who Dat Nation is Cam Taylor-Britt, who would give the Saints a developmental cornerback to add to their secondary.
Bradley Roby appears to be an easy cap casualty this offseason and while NOLA has Marshon Lattimore and Paulson Adebo under contract, they need to add talent at the position. This is why adding someone like Taylor-Britt, who had 51 tackles last season, makes sense. Taylor-Britt also had 11 defended passes and one interception through 12 games.
