Almost half way through the NFL Draft and eight of the first thirteen players drafted thus far have been on the offensive side of the ball, including four quarterbacks.
That's great news for Saints fans who hope to see the team draft a quality defensive player. At this rate, Sean Payton and company will have their choice of quite a few desirable defensive front seven players.
And they'd be crazy not to because still on the board are Da'Quan Bowers, Justin Houston, Adrian Clayborn, Muhammad Wilkerson, Akeem Ayers, Corey Liuget, Cameron Heyward, Cameron Jordan, and Martez Wilson.
