As we inch closer to both the Miami Dolphins first selection at 25 and the real draft in 17 days our mock poll surges on. Today we ask who the New Orleans Saints will take with their first pick. Washington, up yesterday, took OT Andre’ Smith.
The Saints were a monumental dissappointment last year but injuries to key starters including WR Marques Colston didn’t help the team continue on it’s success.
NEEDS from Draft.com
CB, S, LB, DL, WR, RB
The Saints need to upgrade their secondary in a bad way. CB Mike McKenzie is good but getting old and he needs help. Since that is the only first day pick they currently have, it may be wisest to trade down and gather more picks. The Saints selected DT Sedrick Ellis high in the first round last year but he suffered an injury and they could still use some help there. Offensively it’s hard to nitpick at an offense as prolific as New Orleans but they could use some help at WR.
