New, comments

Might as well starting talking about the draft...

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

With the 2015 NFL season now complete, we know the order of the top 20 draft picks in the 2016 NFL Draft. With their 7-9 final record, the Saints have earned the 12th overall draft pick. And because of their weaker strength of schedule, they have the top pick of all the other 7-9 teams. The bad news is that they sit right behind division rival Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The last time the Saints had the 12th overall pick was in 1980, when they selected tackle Stan Brock.

See below for the full top 20 2016 draft order.
