The New Orleans Saints need to add at least one wide receiver in the 2022 NFL Draft, if not two. The need for a wide receiver isn’t a new one, as the team has struggled to find someone outside of Michael Thomas to catch passes and that was proven last year.
The Saints cannot make the same mistake of ignoring their need for a wide receiver two years in a row. This is a very stacked wide receiver class, which bodes well for New Orleans.
With two first-round picks, it feels as though the Saints are planning to take a receiver in round one but who knows? Maybe this is all a ploy to move up and grab a quarterback.
Fortunately for the Saints, there’s plenty of solid wide receiver depth in this draft class. Who’s one receiver the team could target in each round of the 2022 NFL Draft?
To help me with this list, I used The Draft Network’s rankings of prospects and also went through a did a few mocks to see who was on the board with each of the Saints’ picks. Now, it’s worth noting that this was before the trade with the Eagles, but considering one of those picks moved NOLA up two picks, it shouldn’t matter much.
Let’s get to it!
