Saints Have 27th Pick in 2014 NFL Draft

Jeff Zelevansky

Now that the Divisional round of the 2014 NFL Playoffs is over and the Saints have been eliminated, they've been slotted to select 27th overall in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft in May.

With their loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday and the rest of the Divisional round of the 2014 NFL Playoffs complete, the final NFL Draft position for our New Orleans Saints and three other teams have been set.

The Saints will have the 27th overall selection in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft on May 8th. Their remaining selections in the later rounds will be determined later this spring.

You may remember the Saints acquired Robert Meachem with the 27th overall pick in 2007. They would have also had the 27th overall pick in 2012 but they traded it away to the Patriots in a draft-day deal the year prior.

Here is the current 2014 NFL Draft order:

1. Houston Texans - 2-14 (.559)
