Saints 7-round 2024 NFL mock draft: New Orleans trades Marshon Lattimore

Veteran cornerback Marhson Lattimore could be on the move this offseason. If he’s traded, the New Orleans Saints will likely have more picks in the 2024 Draft.

Round 5 Pick 167: Joshua Cephus- Wide Reciever, UTSA

In the 5th round, the Saints develop depth at wide receiver with Joshua Cephus out of UTSA. Cephus has great speed and uses it after the catch. With his speed and shiftiness, it would make him a weapon for Klint Kubiak to use. Cephus possesses good height as well, standing at 6-foot-3. He doesn’t have the most extensive route tree and will need to develop that going into the NFL. Joshua Cephus has shown flashes to be a good NFL receiver, if he is still available the Saints should pick him up.

Round 5 Pick 169: Kimani Vidal- Running Back, Troy

I try not to repeat picks from past mock drafts but I couldn’t pass on Troy running back Kimani Vidal. Vidal is very small but he is an extremely powerful runner. Last year at Troy he had 1,661 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns. He is very tough to tackle, tallying 1,056 yards after contact. Vidal could be a workhorse running back for the Saints. He is someone who could come into the NFL and be a super-productive player for the Saints. With Jamaal Williams not having a great year last year and with the jury still out on Kendre Miller, investing in some depth would benefit the Saints.

Round 5 Pick 174: Ben Sinnott- Tight End, Kansas State

With the Saints final pick in the NFL draft I have them selecting Kansas State tight end Ben Sinnott. With new offensive coordinator Klint Kubiak coming into New Orleans run blockers are going to be a necessity. Sinnott is a great blocker and has shown that time and time again on film. Sinnott can be used as more than just as a blocker, however. He shows good agility after the catch and defenses can have a tough time bringing him down. Sinnott has trouble creating separation in man-to-man at times but that should improve with reps.
