The New Orleans Saints look to finish strong in a draft that they've started extremely well. After filling their most urgent need in round one with the selection of defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins, the Saints had a dynamite second round in which they selected two former Ohio State Buckeyes back-to-back, wide receiver Michael Thomas and safety Vonn Bell.
The Saints remaining positions of need are offensive guard, defensive end, linebacker, cornerback and to a lesser extent running back, where the only player who has proven himself at the position in a Saints uniform is injury-prone Mark Ingram.
So who is it going to be? Will there be more trades? Grab your popcorn and let's talk about it!
