This is partially true. But before any player becomes a free agent he is first a rookie. Sometimes there are no answers in free agency, and you do have to rely on the draft. It's not a sure thing, but it's sometimes the only thing.

And if we didn't need receivers then there would be no reason to draft a receiver. You draft for need, not because it's a guaranteed fix, but because you gotta get talented players in at positions of need and try to develop them.

In this years' case, I can see the Saints drafting just about any position, so it won't surprise me if they take a receiver. It's a not a glaring need, but we could use a legitimate number 1, and there are a ton of guys who have that potential in this class.
