The New Orleans Saints have two of the best offensive tackles in the NFL with Terron Armstead and Ryan Ramczyk, but they still might seek some help at the position in the draft.

Jermon Bushrod, the top backup option last season, is still a free agent, and although the team likes Michael Ola, he spent more time practicing at guard than tackle last year.

Armstead was a Pro Bowl left tackle in 2018, but he still missed six games as he continued to be plagued by injuries. The 27-year-old Armstead hasnít played more than 10 games in any of the past three seasons, so as good as he is when heís healthy, left tackle depth is critically important for the Saints, though they benefit from left guard Andrus Peatís ability to move to tackle at times.

I think DR is potentially a Day 1 starter.

Agree. He did well vs Miss State's D Line in that 2018 game. Montez Sweat beat him a few times, but he beat a bunch of really quality OTs.

It'd be a great investment if get him with the 2nd Rd pick.

O-line with the first pick! Yes!

Protect Drew and give the running game an edge!
