Exploring Every Team Need the New Orleans Saints Must Address in 2012 NFL Draft

The New Orleans Saints will only have six picks in the upcoming draft, and there are a lot of areas that need to be filled.

However, the Saints have done a great job of filling needs through free agency thus far.

Coming into the 2012 offseason, the Saints' biggest needs included defensive tackle and middle linebacker. After Carl Nicks and Robert Meachem left in free agency, the Saints immediately needed some guard help and wide receiver depth.

The Saints answered by bringing in huge free agents in Brodrick Bunkley, Curtis Lofton and Ben Grubbs. New Orleans also has receivers that performed well last preseason in Joe Morgan and Andy Tanner. Not to mention a young player in Adrian Arrington that has been waiting for his shot.

The Saints lost corner Tracy Porter to the Denver Broncos, but they have two early-round draft picks in Patrick Robinson and Johnny Patrick that will fill that void.

Looking at the Saints on paper, there are not many glaring needs.

New Orleans can definitely use some depth in certain areas, and only a couple seem to be high priority for this offseason.

Let's take a look at the needs that the Saints must address in the 2012 NFL Draft.
