The NOLA Saints have to target at least one wide receiver in the 2022 NFL Draft and fortunately for them, this class has plenty of speedy wideouts who could take their offense to the next level.

The NFL Combine is taking place through Monday and we now know who the speediest wide receivers are in this year’s class. Pro Football Focus tweeted out the 10 fastest 40 times at the Combine and if the Saints want a guy who can flat-out fly, they should look no further than these guys.

Now obviously, not all of these guys are first-round targets. New Orleans could look to address another position in the first round and then circle back to receiver in the later rounds. We’ll have to see how things play out at the quarterback position because that’ll be a strong indicator as to how the first round will go for the Saints.

With all of this in mind, let’s take a look at four blazing-fast receivers that the NOLA Saints need to be targeting when the 2022 NFL Draft gets underway. Maybe they don’t go wide receiver in the first round, but these guys need to be on NOLA’s radar.

Let’s check out who these speedsters are!
