New, comments

The Saints are setting themselves up for their best draft in the Sean Payton era. All that's left is to pick the right players.

After trading away Jimmy Graham to the SeahawksBen Grubbs to the Chiefs, and Kenny Stills to the Dolphins during the first wave of NFL free agency this past week, the Saints now find themselves sitting on a healthy stockpile of draft selections. The Saints currently own nine - NINE! - picks in the upcoming 2015 NFL Draft.

For those keeping score at home, the team has NEVER had that many picks in the Sean Payton era. Hopefully that means good things ahead for our boys in black & gold. It's refreshing to see the Saints lean more toward the drafting philosophy of teams like the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks. They must be listening to my advice on our podcast each week.

Here is a list of all the Saints 2015 draft picks. Who knows, they may add even more.

Round Pick No. Overall
1st 13 13
1st 31 (via Seattle) 31
2nd 12 44
3rd 11 75
3rd 14 (via Miami) 78
5th 12 TBD
5th 18 (via Kansas City) TBD
6th 11 TBD
7th 13 TBD
