NFL Draft 2016: Rounds 4-7 Results Tracker

New, comments

What the hell is going on out here??? Who are these Saints that are actually drafting good prospects? Hey, let's enjoy it and hope that it continues today in rounds 4 through 7 of the 2016 NFL draft. New Orleans only has two picks, one in the 5th round and one in the 7th. But if they keep drafting well, we'll gladly take quality over quantity.

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!
