Could the Saints Select a Quarterback in the Upcoming Draft?
April 5Matt LaMarcaSportsGrid
The Saints don’t appear to need a quarterback with both Jameis Winston and Taysom Hill under contract next season, but Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer thinks they could look to add another player to their quarterback room. It seems unlikely that they would use one of their early picks on a quarterback — they have four picks in the first three rounds of the upcoming draft — but they could certainly look to select a quarterback with one of their later selections. Head coach Sean Payton recently said, “Well, when it comes to the draft, same way, you’ve gotta grade and not be afraid of drafting on top of strength. When you put the final grades on these quarterbacks, we’ve been close to drafting quarterbacks before, we have drafted later-round quarterbacks. A lot of it just falls on where you’re at, and what you’re seeing in the value of the player in that round.”
It seems like a long shot that someone other than Winston or Hill will start at quarterback for the Saints next season, but they may take a flyer on someone who could be their quarterback of the future. The Saints are currently listed at +2300 to win Super Bowl LVI on FanDuel Sportsbook.
