Drew Brees will need to lead the offense with coach Sean Payton suspended for the entire season
Team Needs: LB, WR, S
The New Orleans Saints have been the most talked about team this offseason, but not for the right reasons. Greg Williams and the bounty system have occupied an offseason that should have focused on a long term extension for Drew Brees.
Free Agency also proved to be problematic as the Saints lost Pro Bowl guard Carl Nicks to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and wide receiver Robert Meachem to the San Diego Chargers.
After trading up for Mark Ingram in last year's NFL Draft and the penalties levied by Roger Goodell, the Saints will have to wait until the third round to select a player. The Saints signed Ben Grubbs to fill the Carl Nicks void, but the wide receiving core could use another addition.
With the impending suspension of Jonathan Vilma the Saints signed Curtis Loften as a stop gap. However, the Saints linebacking group has underperformed as a whole and could use an infusion of youth.
Possible Selections (3rd Round, Pick 89th Overall)
Vontaze Burfict ILB (Arizona State), Kyle Wilber OLB (Wake Forest), Brian Quick WR (Appalachian State)
