New Orleans Saints valgte defensiv tackle Sheldon Rankins fra Louisville i første runde af draften.

Det var et valg som mange mock drafts havde forudset.

New Orleans Saints 2016 draft klasse

1.runde: 12 overall – Sheldon Rankins, defensiv tackle, Louisville

“The Saints have been awful on defense, so this is not a surprise pick here for me. Rankins is the best three-technique, which is a defensive tackle in a four-man front. He will be a sub-package interior pass rusher and one of the better ones in this league. What he does best is pick a gap and go. He’s one of the quicker defensive tackles we’ve seen in the last several years.” — Mike Mayock

2. runde (#47): Michael Thomas, WR, Ohio State

“His greatest strengths are that he has ball skill and he’s a competitive SOB. He’s a refuse-to-lose type player. I think that he will have a long career in the NFL.” — Ohio State coach Urban Meyer

2. runde (#61): Vonn Bell, FS, Ohio State

“He has the skill set of a corner. How many safeties can cover a No. 2 receiver?” — Ohio State coach Urban Meyer

4. runde (#120): David Onyemata, defensiv tackle, Manitoba (Canada)

The Saints will need to be patient with Onyemata, as he’s new to the game and extremely raw. The organization, however, recognized his nasty demeanor and “plus” athleticism on film and against top competition during Shrine week. He’s a project with a potentially nice payoff. –Mark Dulgerian

7. runde (#237): Daniel Lasso, running back, California

Sean Payton will see how he can utilize Lasco’s explosiveness during camp. If he passes the trial period, he’s a depth weapon for an offensive-minded head coach. –Mark Dulgerian
