New Orleans Saints Draft Preview; 2016 Schedule Released
With the NFL Draft set to begin on April 28th, let’s take a look at this year’s New Orleans Saints Draft Preview and schedule.
New Orleans Saints Draft Preview
The New Orleans Saints ranked 31st the last two seasons in total yards allowed and also set a new record last season for the most TD’s allowed. At #12, the Saints will be looking for pretty much anyone to help them on defense.
Defensive End will most likely be the first spot they look at when trying to find someone who can stop opposing teams. Finding a solid pass rusher off the edge will definitely be able to help the secondary.
However, couple that need with one at Outside Linebacker and Cornerback and they can pretty much have anyone make an impact right away – and they need to…badly.
Saints’ Top Prospects
DL – Joey Bosa (Ohio State), DeForest Buckner (Oregon), A’Shawn Robinson (Alabama)
OLB – Myles Jack (UCLA), Jaylon Smith (Notre Dame), Leonard Floyd (Georgia)
CB – Jaylen Ramsey (Florida State), Vernon Hargreaves (Florida), Mackensie Alexander (Clemson)
