Så er der efterhånden blot timer til at årets draft går i gang. Og her kan du læse hvem New Orleans Saints vælger ifølge eksperterne.
Det tyder på en defensiv spiller, men hvilken? Nok en cornerback eller linebacker. Men der er ikke en enkelt spiller som skiller sig ud. Her er hvem de vælger.
Zaven Collins, LB, Tulsa
The Saints are always lauded for their offense, but they have become consistent Super Bowl contenders by constantly upgrading their defense. Collins’ speed and playmaking ability fit well in New Orleans.– Charles Davis, NFL.com
Collins is a long, fluid linebacker with some pass-rushing juice.Chris Trapasso, CBSsports
Tyson Campbell, CB, Georgia
New Orleans has a huge need at corner. Campbell is still a little bit raw, but his physical tools are enticing.– Daniel Jeremiah, NFL.com
Asante Samuel Jr., CB, Florida State
I’m sticking with Samuel here. With Janoris Jenkins out the door, the rookie plugs right in opposite Marshon Lattimore.– Charley Casserly, NFL.com
Caleb Farley, CB, Virginia Tech
Farley underwent a back procedure last month that could scare some teams off from taking him in the top half of the round. But the Saints have needs in the secondary and if Farley is healthy, this pick becomes a steal.Ryan Wilson, CBSsports
Greg Newsome II, CB, Northwestern
They have to get a corner to go with Marshon Lattimore. In a division with Tom Brady throwing to his skilled receivers, you need cover players.Pete Prisco, CBSSports
Eric Stokes, CB, Georgia
The Saints know they need cornerback help. Stokes offers a terrific blend of size/speed/play strength and the ability to match up with the fastest wideouts in the league.Lance Zierlein, NFL.com
Kadarius Toney, WR, Florida
Lots of Caleb Farley-to-New Orleans talk on Tuesday and Wednesday. It’s possible. Or the Saints go with Toney, who could be an electric addition to an offense that lost Emmanuel Sanders and Jared Cook this offseason.Peter Schrager, NFL.com
Levi Onwuzurike, Dt, Washington
The Saints need to find a pass rusher to fill the void created by the departures of Sheldon Rankins and Trey Hendrickson. Onwuzurike has the size, length and hand skills to create problems from the interior.– Bucky Brooks, NFL.com
Jamin Davis, LB, Kentucky
To the delight of the Saints, Jamin Davis is still on the board after an overwhelmingly positive pro day. He is a really athletic player that is only scratching the surface of what he can become consistently.Josh Edwards, CBSSports
