Round 1 Pick 24: Kenneth Murray [LB; Oklahoma]
The Saints' addition of Emmanuel Sanders allows them to focus on defense with pick 24. Our NFC South rivals have all added talent to the offensive side of the ball this offseason, and we'll need to bolster our defensive unit in order to stay atop the division. Linebacker is at the top of the Saints' needs with the health concerns of Alex Anzalone and Kiko Alonso and the lack of depth behind them. Kenneth Murray's athleticism and range will benefit the Saints in the underneath passing game and give them a dynamic playmaker next to Demario Davis.
*TRADE* Round 2 pick 50: A.J. Terrell [CB; Clemson] *Saints send picks 88, 170, and their 2nd round selection in 2021 for pick 50
The Saints are in "win-now" mode and cant take a chance on developmental prospects in the early rounds. Loomis makes a call to his old colleague, Ryan Pace, and snags one of the Bears' two second round selections. Terrell has experience on the biggest of stages at the collegiate level and can make an immediate impact in the Saints' secondary. At 6'1 195 lbs, Terrell has prototypical size to be a starting Corner in the NFL.
Round 4 pick 130: Van Jefferson [WR; Florida]
Thus far in his career, TreQuan Smith has been somewhat of a disappointment. Competetion and depth will help improve what was probably the Saints' weakest unit in 2019. Jefferson has experience against SEC defenses and his versatility allows him to line up and all over the formation.
Round 6 pick 204; Kyle Murphy [OL; Rhode Island]
You can never have too much depth in the trenches. Murphy had experience lining up at Center, Guard, and Tackle at Rhode Island.
