There has been a gigantic shift in this writer's New Orleans Saints seven-round mock draft this week after the culmination of the East-West Shrine Game, and other All-Star games played this past weekend.

Instead, the Saints will be in position to replace another huge hole with the departure of Sedrick Ellis via free agency.
