2. Draft a Wide Receiver Early

This year’s wide receiver draft class is stacked so the Saints have no excuse not to go out and land one on the first two days of the draft.

There are six big names at the position entering the draft — Treylon Burks, Jahan Dotson, Drake London, Chris Olave, Jameson Williams, and Garrett Wilson. The Draft Network has all six of these guys as first-round picks so it might be hard for the Saints to get one of them if they go with a different position in round one.

Even beyond those guys, there’s still plenty of talent at the position in the second and third rounds, such as John Metchie III, David Bell, George Pickens, Wan’Dale Robinson, and Christian Watson.

The only way I’d be okay with NOLA not drafting a wide receiver during the first two days of the draft is if they signed a key name in free agency. With their lack of funds, however, I don’t see that happening. The draft is their best option to get a game-changing wide receiver to pair with Michael Thomas and it’s one of their easiest offseason decisions.
