The Saints have set themselves up pretty well after all of their moves in free agency. There is no longer a need a linebacker with the additions of Curtis Lofton, Chris Chamberlain and David Hawthorne. Add in second-year player Martez Wilson, and something that was an area of weakness has transformed into a strength.
Also, the addition of Brodrick Bunkley and the offset of the Carl Nicks loss by signing Ben Grubbs has been essential to New Orleans' draft plans since the added loss of a second round pick. Starting in the third-round of the draft, the Saints have set themselves up pretty nicely to go after value rather than need when their selections roll around.
I would say the Saints' area of needs goes like this: CB, DE, TE, WR, DT, OT.
In this seven-round mock, I will try to slot in the right players at areas of concern while still trying to maintain some value in each pick. Let's dive in.
