A final New Orleans Saints 2019 7-Round Mock Draft 

What’s one more mock draft going to hurt?

The 2019 NFL Draft is only a day away, and I’ve got my first and only mock draft finished. The New Orleans Saints don’t have many needs, but they could add some explosive players on offense and depth on defense. The Saints however, don’t have a first round pick (Marcus Davenport), third round pick (Teddy Bridgewater), and a fourth round pick (Eli Apple). That being said the Saints aren’t afraid to use future picks to trade up if a player...

Sean Payton has hilarious spoof of Phil Mickelson’s famous Masters video

New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton is taking part in the Zurich Classic pro-am at TPC Louisiana this week, and he seems just as excited about it as Phil Mickelson was before Round 3 of the Masters a couple weeks ago. On his way to the course on Wednesday, Payton recorded himself discussing his plan for the day in a similar fashion to when Mickelson said he was going to be “hitting bombs” at Augusta National. The big difference for Payton is that he stressed the importance of not...

2019 New Orleans Saints draft prospects: Jamal Davis II

Looking at a defender who could Zip his way into a contributing role quickly. New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton wanted to add a difference maker on his team's defensive line as they entered the 2018 NFL Draft. The Saints would make one of the bigger deals of the first round, sending their 1st round pick last year (#27 overall), last year's 5th round pick (#147 overall), along with their 1st round pick this year (30th overall) to the Green Bay Packers in order to move to the 14th overall...

Saints pick up Sheldon Rankins' option

The Saints are picking up defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins‘ fifth-year option, a source tells Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (on Twitter). The money is guaranteed for injury, so, as Rapoport notes, it’s a sign they believe Rankins will make a full recovery from his Achilles injury. Rankins, one of the best young defensive linemen in the game, is likely to begin the 2019 regular season on the physically unable to perform list, which would force him to miss the first six games of the year....

Saints CB Ken Crawley signs RFA tender

Saints CB Ken Crawley has signed his original round restricted free agent tender, as veteran NFL reporter Howard Balzer tweets. We learned last week that Crawley would be signing the tender, as he had not garnered any interest from rival clubs. The lack of interest is not surprising, even though a team that signed Crawley to an offer sheet would not have needed to send any draft compensation to the Saints (since Crawley entered the league as an undrafted free agent). Crawley was demoted...

POLL: Where (not who) will be the first Saints’ pick in the 2019 NFL Draft?

Will the Saints be able to wait all the way to pick #62?

The 2019 NFL Draft is almost upon us.

If you’re a fan of the New Orleans Saints, you know that General Manager Mickey Loomis is big fan of draft day trades, but to say that he is apprehensive of trading down, might be the biggest understatement of 2019.

The Saints have not traded down in the NFL draft since 2007 when they traded with the Detroit Lions to move down eight spots from 58th to 66th in exchange for an additional fifth...

2019 New Orleans Saints draft prospects: Hunter Renfrow

A potential draft steal that could be hiding in plain sight of NFL scouts.

Many expect the New Orleans Saints to draft a wide receiver with one of their selections in the NFL draft later this week. The team does already has Michael Thomas, who led the NFL with a franchise record 125 receptions in 2018, and is one of the best receivers in the league. Some were disappointed in the production from the rest of the wide receiver position though. The Saints do have promising second year receivers...

Saints GM won't comment on potentially adding Dez Bryant

Dez Bryant would like to have another chance to play for the New Orleans Saints. But if that’s on the table, general manager Mickey Loomis isn’t divulging any interest. Asked about Bryant during his press conference Monday, Loomis said, “I don’t think I want to comment on that either,” after refusing to comment on “must” positions in the draft, per Luke Johnson of NOLA.com. Last year, Bryant signed with the Saints in early November, only to suffer a torn Achilles during his...

Revisiting the infamous Ricky Williams draft-day trade

Twenty years ago, the New Orleans Saints traded their entire collection of draft picks, plus a first-round and third-round pick the following year, to get running back and Heisman Trophy winner Ricky Williams. It’s widely hailed as one of the worst trades in NFL history.  No doubt, it was one of the most notorious trades, made far more notable by the pomp and circumstance surrounding it.
