The New Orleans Saints were back in the playoffs in 2013, and will look to get even further in 2014; to do that, they will need to have a good draft. New Orleans has the 27th overall pick in the first round.
Here are five scenarios that could play out for the Saints in Round 1.
Kelvin Benjamin is a player who New Orleans could look at as the replacement for Lance Moore. Benjamin is 6-foot-4, and would give Drew Brees another red zone target to go along with Jimmy Graham and Marques Colston.
If New Orleans wants to go defense in Round 1, a good option would be CB Jason Verrett. Verrett has the potential to be a shut down corner in the NFL. He would be helpful to the Saints when they play teams like the Atlanta Falcons in their division.
New Orleans could also opt to upgrade their defensive line. Kony Elay would be a great pass rushing DE to add. Elay played at Missouri in the SEC, so he is used to going up against top talent.
If New Orleans wanted to be bold, they could try to trade up and select WR Mike Evans. Evans would be a great weapon for Drew Brees, and could make the Saints' offense even more lethal than it already is.
Dee Ford would be a great pick for the Saints. He is a DE who can stop the run and put pressure on the QB. Much like Kony Elay, Dee Ford played at Auburn in the SEC, so they know he is battle tested.
