The 2022 NFL Draft is in the rearview mirror. How does the New Orleans Saints’ quarterback depth chart look following the draft?
Prior to the draft, I went through and did depth charts for all of the positions on the Saints‘ roster. Quarterback is a position that had no changes made to it despite significant speculation that that would not be the case.
After New Orleans made a trade with the Eagles that netted them an extra first-round pick, some thought maybe they’d use that extra pick on a quarterback. Others thought that perhaps they were looking to package both first-rounders to move up in the first round and nab a signal-caller.
Neither of those happened, as we know now.
The Saints did move up in the first round but it was to take Chris Olave 11th overall. They stood pat at 19 overall and grabbed Northern Iowa’s Trevor Penning to help replace Terron Armstead.
Not only did New Orleans not draft a single quarterback, but they also didn’t sign one in undrafted free agency following the draft. Guys like Carson Strong and Cole Kelley went undrafted and neither wound up signing with New Orleans.
So, now that the dust from the NFL Draft has settled, let’s take a look at the Saints’ QB depth chart.
