Per Charles Robinson, a Senior NFL reporter for Yahoo, the New Orleans Saints might try and move up to pick Virginia Tech CB Caleb Farley. Adding the Saints feel like they might have to move ahead of the Tennessee Titans at pick 22 in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Per @CharlesRobinson on Caleb Farley, says he's hearing Saints might move up to get him. And that Saints feel they may need to move ahead of Titans to get it done.— Joe Rexrode (@joerexrode) April 27, 2021
In past years, the Saints draft leaks have had some sort of truth more often than not. One of the true things here is that the Saints love to trade up and cornerback is a “must.” If the Saints want to trade up, they have the draft capital to move up the board. The Arizona Cardinals pick 16th overall and they have a need at cornerback, so if Caleb Farley makes it past pick 16, the Saints could look to trade up into the pick 17-21 range to go get him.
Important to add here, Charles says Saints have been "leaky" in recent years and a lot of the pre-draft info on their leanings has been accurate.— Joe Rexrode (@joerexrode) April 27, 2021
If the Saints are targeting Farley, they may actually have to end up trading up for him. Farley’s value, absent injury concerns, is objectively much higher than being the 28th overall pick. But the Saints could benefit, and injury concerns may start Farley’s free fall to New Orleans. If the Saints were to select Farley, he would most likely start across from Marshon Lattimore as early as Week 1 of the 2021 NFL season.
Farley fits the mold of a Saints draft pick: elite talent, high production, and a question mark that could make or break the selection. The Saints do lots of homework on all of their prospects and come draft day, they might look to target a player that may fall to them, and they’ll do anything to get them. Do the Saints have their eye on Caleb Farley? We might find out Thursday.
