Saints fans generally pleased with pick of Ruiz, but lack confidence in Baun/Trautman

Is it really just because of Baun?

Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NFL. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged-in New Orleans Saints fans and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.

With a new wave of players about to join the league in next week’s NFL Draft, the most recent SB Nation Reacts survey took a look back at last year’s picks and how fans feel about the 2020 draft class a year removed.

According to the survey, nearly two-thirds of fans still like using the first-round pick on offensive lineman Cesar Ruiz.

Based in no small part on the results from the first round, fans were evenly split between giving the team an overall draft grade of B or C. Considering the entire Saints draft class consists of Ruiz, Adam Trautman, and Zack Baun, it’s hard to blame Saints’ fans for their uncertainty.

With the first overall draft pick last year, the Cincinnati Bengals selected quarterback Joe Burrow. Despite an injury, Burrow played well in his rookie year. A year out, more than three-fourths of fans still believe the LSU quarterback should have been the top pick.
