The New Orleans Saints can go in a number of directions with their first pick in the NFL draft. As usual, I expect them to stick to the "best player available" practice that has worked so well for them over the years. That said, I don't think they'll take Teddy Bridgewater or Blake Bortles in the unlikely event either QB drops to No. 27.

By all accounts, this is one of the deepest drafts in recent years. The first three rounds are loaded with starting-caliber talent. The depth of the positional prospects must be considered when analyzing the potential strategy of teams.

The Saints have a couple of glaring holes at cornerback and center that will need to be addressed at some point, either in the remaining free agency period or the draft. They could also use a wide receiver. But the receiver position is loaded with as many as 15 players carrying high grades, so I expect New Orleans to go in another direction than receiver in Round 1, gambling it can find a quality wideout in the later rounds.

Could be. Love the excerpt on draft philosophy- players who score and prevent TDs in early rounds.

Odell?

I like the idea. Sort of unconventional...but sounds like a Loomis/Payton move. Having 8 picks in the first five rounds would certainly increase the odds of us hitting on something...

When was trading down ever prevented? Was it prevented at some point? I think it's always been an option.

It's prevented when you can't find a trade partner... Haha

What is a 27th 1st round worth and what pick in the 2nd would be good to pick at? There are always players that fall and rise on draft day.

We gave a 2nd round pick and a 1st round pick for the 28th pick to get Ingram....

Teams wanting Derek Carr...

Your trade candidates will be the Raiders and Cleveland...

Either team could take one of the top LT or LB Khalil Mack, then move up from the second to late in the first to secure Derek Carr...

Saints could send their 1R (27) pick and ask for Cleveland 2R (35) and 3R (83) putting it at Saints send 680 trade value vs Cleveland 725 value...

Trickier, Saints could send their 1R (27) pick and ask for Oakland 2R (36) and 3R (67) putting it at Saints send 680 trade value vs Oakliand 795 value...
