4 wide receivers the NOLA Saints could draft in the second round
2. Skyy Moore
The COVID-19 pandemic prevented Skyy Moore from having three historic seasons for Western Michigan. As a freshman in 2019, Moore had 51 catches for 802 yards and three touchdowns but in 2020, the Bronco only had a chance to play in five games due to the pandemic. He was still able to match his 2019 touchdown total during that time.
This past year, Moore showed that he belongs in the NFL with his incredible campaign. He caught 95 passes for 1,292 yards and 10 touchdowns through 12 games, averaging 13.6 yards per catch.
Moore would give NOLA their starting slot receiver for the 2022 season and beyond. As of now, Lil’Jordan Humprey is most likely to be the slot receiver for the black and gold in 2022. While I’m a fan of Humphrey, Moore would give them an upgrade in that department. He needs to be on their radar.
1. David Bell
My favorite option for the Saints at wide receiver if they pass on one in the first round is Purdue’s David Bell, who might still be on the board when they’re on the clock in round two.
Bell, like Moore, had two dominant seasons during his three years at his alma mater and could give Jameis Winston his favorite weapon for the next few years. This past year saw Bell haul in 93 receptions for 1,286 yards and six touchdowns, averaging 13.8 yards per catch.
If the Saints go with a different position in the first round, David Bell might be the best receiver on the board in the second round. He’d fit in well with the Saints’ offense and wouldn’t have to do as much in this offense as he was asked to do at Purdue.
