The New Orleans Saints are an interesting team. They have beaten the likes of the Green Bay Packers and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but have lost to teams like the Atlanta Falcons and the New York Giants.
Jameis Winston could be the future of the Saints at the quarterback position, but they need to give him more weapons to work with. The last time the Saints drafted a wideout from Ohio State it worked out early on with Michael Thomas.
Taking Garrett Wilson would give the Saints an additional weapon to go along with Alvin Kamara, Thomas, and Adam Trautman. It would give the team breathing room if Thomas is either traded or unable to return for the Saints as well.
Wilson is considered one of the top wideouts in this year’s draft class, with many placing him right at the top. At Ohio State, Wilson was able to produce alongside fellow 2022 draft prospect Chris Olave and 2023 wideout Jaxon Smith-Njigba. Wilson can do everything at the wideout position and should have a massive first season with whatever team he lands with.
On defense, the Saints have the players able to compete with any team, but on offense, they are lacking health and additional pass-catching threats. Being able to grab Wilson would be a big win for Sean Payton and the Saints.
