Here’s your chance to voice your opinion on what the New Orleans Saints should do with their first-round pick.

Draft Watch: NFC South - NFC South Blog - ESPN
....the Saints like to focus on the best available player and they don’t lock into needs that can be filled if and when free agency arrives. Defensive end is New Orleans’ biggest area of need, but the history of Loomis and Payton suggest they’re not going to take someone at that position unless they’re convinced he’s the best player available. With this approach, just about any position other than quarterback is in play when the Saints pick at No. 24.

NFC South needs to look at RBs in draft - NFC South Blog - ESPN
The numbers say the Saints are just fine at running back. But recent history tells another story. The Saints also had Ingram in for a visit, and he has to be a consideration if he’s available at No. 24. Even if it’s not Ingram, the Saints need to add a running back somewhere in the draft.
