2. Chris Olave or Garrett Wilson

I put these two in one entry because they’re mentioned together frequently due to both playing wide receiver at Ohio State. New Orleans won’t have a chance to add both guys but they very well could add one of the two and either one would give their offense a boost.

The Saints absolutely have to draft a wide receiver within the first three rounds but fans would be elated if they spent their first-round pick on a wideout and it happened to be one of these players.

Olave is someone who could shine anywhere while Wilson needs to be featured as a slot receiver wherever he goes. New Orleans could use either guy and the best news about either of them joining the offense is that even if their stats aren’t great, they probably wouldn’t get the blame depending on who the quarterback is.

That, of course, hopefully gets resolved before the start of the season, but whether it’s Olave or Wilson who dons the black and gold, it feels like either one would be a surefire bet to get this offense on the right track again.
