The 2018 NFL Draft is wrapping up, and the New Orleans Saints have made their final pick at 245th overall in the seventh round, landing offensive lineman Will Clapp from the LSU Tigers. The Saints’ 2018 Draft class includes: edge defender Marcus Davenport, wide receiver Tre’Quan Smith, offensive lineman Rick Leonard, defensive back Natrell Jamerson, cornerback Kamrin Moore, and running back Boston Scott. Here’s a quick overview from Lance Zierlein of NFL.com:

Steady, durable and reliable, Clapp has appealing size, but he’s more likely to man his position than to help make a noticeable improvement to an offensive line. His guard/center flexibility gives him an advantage over some other center prospects, but he might be more of an eventual starter than early starter if he goes to a decent team.
