Another mock draft, another wide receiver projected for New Orleans.

Laviska Shenault, Jr. Tee Higgins. This time? CBS Sports has mocked wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk from Arizona State is projected to New Orleans 24th overall in the 2020 NFL Draft:

Brandon Aiyuk WR

ARIZONA STATE • SR • 6’1” / 206 LBS


The Saints don’t know who will be under center in 2020, but whoever it is should be presented with better secondary weapons in the passing game so Michael Thomas doesn’t have to catch 149 balls again. Aiyuk is a big-play threat who can stretch the defense.

Speaking of Shenault, he went to the Green Bay Packers 30th overall in the CBS mock draft. Tee Higgins went two spots earlier than New Orleans, 20th overall to the Buffalo Bills, one spot after Henry Ruggs III of Alabama who went to Philadelphia Eagles 19th overall. Justin Jefferson of LSU was not included in the first round of this mock draft.

Would you be happy with the Aiyuk pick? Let me know in the comments. Send me presents.
