The New Orleans Saints have drafted just two quarterbacks since Drew Brees took over as the signal caller in 2006, Sean Canfield in 2010 and Garrett Grayson in 2015.
A seventh-round pick, Canfield came to the team trying to secure a backup role, but he spent just two years with the team. Grayson, meanwhile, was a third-round pick in which the Saints saw potential to become Brees’ long-term replacement, but he lasted just two years in New Orleans, too.
For much of Brees’ tenure, the Saints had no reason to look for anything but a backup option in the draft. As he has aged, the need for a long-term replacement has grown, but Brees hasn’t yet shown that he’s ready to cede the role.
The Saints could again consider finding someone in this year’s draft, which could have as many as six quarterbacks in the first round.
With about two weeks remaining before the draft, we’ll analyze the Saints’ needs at each position. The 10-part series begins with the men under center.

Re: New Orleans Saints pre-draft depth chart: Quarterback

I actually like Tom Savage. When I saw him play I thought to myself that I wish he was our backup QB. Now, let's see what he has in preseason.
