The New Orleans Saints have filled every positional need faced in free agency. The result is that the team can literally take best player available in each round of the upcoming NFL draft. 

"Fit" is always a key in selecting players for a roster. It is especially important this year since the team will be looking for some of the early-round selections to come in and compete for starting spots or immediate playing time. 

Of course, the team would love to find the best fit at each position. Many of the players listed here are first-round prospects, meaning the Saints will not be able to draft them. Others are late-round selections meaning that, at least theoretically, they could become Saints. 

Some positions are illogical to consider as draftable for the Saints this year. Those include running back, offensive guard, inside linebacker and defensive end. 

In all likelihood the other nine positional units are up for grabs. But for each, here is the one player in this draft who is the best schematic fit for what the Saints like to do at that position.
