1 wide receiver the Saints can target in each round of 2022 NFL Draft
Round 3: Wan’Dale Robinson (Kentucky)
After two years serving as an offensive weapon for Nebraska, Wan’Dale Robinson transferred to Kentucky and became an immediate game-changer for the Wildcats. He finished his lone season in Lexington with an astounding 104 receptions for 1,334 yards and seven touchdowns while also racking up over 100 yards on the ground.
Had Sean Payton still been the head coach of the Saints, one would have to think he’d be drooling over the possibility of drafting Robinson. He presents a versatile offensive weapon that could give New Orleans a lot of options on that side of the ball.
I’d love to see New Orleans spend their third-round pick on Robinson and let the kid do what he does best.
Round 4: Kyle Philips (UCLA)
If the Saints opt to target a wide receiver in the fourth round of the draft, Kyle Philips is someone they should be looking to add. Philips racked up 59 receptions for 739 yards and an incredible 10 touchdowns for the Bruins this past year in 11 games. He’d be a great red-zone threat to add to this Saints offense.
Philips’ yardage total from a season ago might not have been eye-popping but it’s those 10 touchdowns that pop off the page. The Saints’ offense struggled to score a season ago but Philips could fix that problem for them.
