The New Orleans Saints have their quarterback, as they agreed on a two-year deal with Jameis Winston. This isn’t a move that surprised people but now that it’s completed, we can finally do a Saints mock draft and not have to link the team to a quarterback.
This four-round mock draft was put together by The Draft Network’s mock draft simulator and fans would probably be okay with things shaking out in this way. Let’s get started!
Round 1: Pick 18 – Drake London, WR (USC)
Now that they have their quarterback, wide receiver goes back to being the most important position on the Saints’ agenda this offseason. The first round of the draft gives them the best chance to find a superstar at the position and in this mock, they go with USC’s Drake London.
London was a star for the Trojans this past year, starting eight games and grabbing 88 receptions for 1,084 yards and seven touchdowns during that time. He’d give the Saints a speedy receiver and pairing him with Thomas suddenly makes the NOLA receiving corp much more dangerous.
The Saints need a wide receiver and while there are plenty of other options they could go with at No. 18, New Orleans takes Drake London here because of the speed he possesses. He’d be a lot of fun to watch in this offense.
