3 Round Mock Draft: Saints get their LSU player—but not that one.

Jeff Swinger-USA TODAY Sports

The Saints build to their offense in CSC’s first 3-round mock draft.

Though the New Orleans Saints are without a second round pick (for now) the depth at certain positions in this 2020 NFL Draft class will go a long way in helping the Saints restock and reload heading into 2020, looking for a chance to get back into Super Bowl contention.

Let’s take a look at my most recent projections in the first three rounds for the New Orleans Saints, and their...

Saints 2019 Year in Review: Andrus Peat

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

Peat has shown his value overtime, but will other teams value him more than the Saints?

Andrus Peat is going to be one of the Saints’ most polarizing figures this offseason. The guard was drafted by the Saints in 2015, and the two biggest knocks against him are a history of injuries that is only growing as his career goes on and the fact that the Saints went on to spend high draft picks on the likes of All-Pro tackle Ryan Ramczyk and a phenomenal young...

Which of their own free agents will the New Orleans Saints push hardest to bring back?

The New Orleans Saints are going to be faced with a number of crucial offseason decisions before taking the field again for the 2020 season. The Saints didn't have many glaring weaknesses in 2019, but the ones they did have were badly exposed in their playoff loss to the Minnesota Vikings. While New Orleans will look to fortify those shortcomings in the draft and...

New Orleans Saints Vision Has Moved to Next Season

The playoffs are still underway, but the New Orleans Saints vision has moved to next season. Following another disappointing end to the season, the Saints are left with trying to figure out what needs to be done to improve for 2020.

Tom Brady to New Orleans? No, but still more likely than Joe Burrow

Photo by Chris Graythen/Getty Images

But neither are happening.

As we head into the 2020 offseason, the New Orleans Saints currently have a grand total of zero quarterbacks under contract. Drew Brees, Teddy Bridgewater, and Taysom Hill are all free agents (the latter a restricted free agent) and could theoretically all leave for a different team in 2020.

The free agent quarterback class is incredibly deep as it stands now, beyond the likes of the Saints trio listed above. Dak Prescott of...

Runningback Alvin Kamara added to pro bowl; 11th Saint on the list

Third year running back Alvin Kamara has now been named to his 3rd straight pro bowl. Kamara had what some say an off year. It is a little drop off from his year 1 and 2 numbers. The biggest drop off was his touchdowns, his rookie year he had 13 touchdowns, year 2 he had 18 touchdowns, and this season he only had 6 touchdowns.

Every year of his career he has amassed 81 receptions. Since year 1...

3 FA receivers the Saints could target this offseason

The Saints need help at the receiver position, but who should they sign?

The receiver position is an area the Saints have been lacking depth in ever since they shipped Brandin Cooks away.

They’ve managed to patchwork production in the passing game through running backs and tight ends, but have yet to find that true number two threat at wide receiver next to Michael Thomas.

Despite a draft class loaded with receivers coming up, the Saints will most likely explore their options at that...
