New Orleans Saints Day 3 2014 NFL Draft Primer

We’re two days into the marathon that is the 2014 NFL draft. In the first two rounds, the New Orleans Saints made two selections. They selected a multi-dimensional playmaking receiver/returner and a long, physical cornerback.

To grab the playmaking Brandin Cooks, the Saints traded away their first- (No. 27 overall) and third-round picks (No. 91 overall). On Day 2, the Saints stayed put at No. 58 to grab the senior cornerback from Nebraska, Stanley Jean-Baptiste.

To sum up: two picks, two needs met for the Saints.

In Saturday’s final round, they can continue to look to find the best player available at a position of need. The center position remains a key spot to address. Outside and inside linebackers who fit the 3-4 could also be had.

In addition, they could go with a developmental quarterback, developmental tight end and/or a kicker to compete with Shayne Graham and Derek Dimke.

Basically, the Saints have options. And they still have four picks to work with on Saturday.
