Saints News, 4/3/14: Saints To Look For New Return Man In The Draft?

Joe Murphy

ESPN's Mike Triplett speculates that the Saints could go one of two routes in the draft in search of a new return man. They could target a top wide receiver that is capable of playing a dual role, or they could snag one of the top pure returners in the middle or later rounds. If they choose the first route, Triplett says three receivers could potentially fit the bill in Round 1: LSU's Odell Beckham Jr., USC's Marqise Lee and Oregon State's Brandin Cooks.

Return man for Saints in draft? - New Orleans Saints Blog - ESPN
The Saints could go one of two routes in the draft. They could target a top wide receiver that is capable of playing a dual role, or they could snag one of the top pure returners in the middle or later rounds. If they choose the first route, three receivers could potentially fit the bill in Round 1: LSU's Odell Beckham Jr., USC's Marqise Lee and Oregon State's Brandin Cooks. All three of those prospects would be worthy of the Saints' pick at No. 27 based on their receiving ability alone, since a big-play receiver ranks among New Orleans' top needs.
