A different wide receiver to the Saints in MJD’s mock draft

New, comments

New mock, new receiver to New Orleans.

NCAA Football: Alamo Bowl-Utah vs Texas Erich Schlegel-USA TODAY Sports

Laviska Shenault. Tee Higgins. Brandon Aiyuk.

Add a fourth name to the mix now, as former NFL running back turned NFL analyst Maurice Jones-Drew has predicted the New Orleans Saints draft Collin Johnson 24th overall in the 2020 NFL Draft:

Collin Johnson - WR

School: Texas | Year: Senior

I know selecting Johnson here will raise some eyebrows, but think of former Saints WR Marques Colston with this pick. Johnson is more athletic than Colston was, and he will thrive opposite Michael Thomas.

Of course CeeDee Lamb and Jerry Jeudy were already off the board in the first fifteen picks. Tee Higgins, Henry Ruggs III, and Justin Jefferson were all off the board before the Saints were on the clock. However, Laviska Shenault and Brandon Aiyuk were both available.

What says you, Who Dat Nation? Would you be happy with the Johnson pick? Or would you prefer Shenault or Aiyuk? Maybe you’d prefer the Saints go defense and pick LB Kenneth Murray, who went to the Baltimore Ravens 28th overall in this mock? Let me know in the comments. Send me presents.
