If the Saints shockingly pass on a tackle in the first round or double down on a much-needed position, here are some of the potential Day 2 tackle prospects to watch.

By Bob Rose - Saints News Network | SI

The New Orleans Saints are expected to address a major need at offensive tackle in the first round of the 2024 NFL Draft. However, what if they (inexplicably) go another direction in the first round? It also wouldn't be surprising if the Saints double-dipped at the position with a Day 2 selection.

Notre Dame OT Joe Alt is projected to be the first lineman off the board as a top-10 selection. Olumuyiwa Fashanu (Penn State), Taliese Fuaga (Oregon State), and Troy Fautanu (Washington) are consensus first-round picks as well. There's a strong possibility that all will be off the board by the time New Orleans selects at number 14.

If so, Amarius Mims (Georgia), JC Latham (Alabama), and Tyler Guyton (Oklahoma) are other first round possibilities. All three players are projected to be gone no later than early in the second round. Unlike most years, there is yet another tier of tackles that have the ability to make an NFL impact and will likely be selected in Day 2.

Jordan Morgan, OT - Arizona; 6'5" & 311-Lbs.

A three-year starter at left tackle for the Wildcats, Jordan Morgan is coming off a 1st Team All-Pac 12 selection in 2023. He possesses a nice blend of athletic traits on a dense frame. Morgan's long upper body should allow him to add more bulk without sacrificing agility. ...

Why the Saints should not trade down from the 14th pick

  • News source: Darrion Gray

The New Orleans Saints rarely trade down in the NFL draft. Matter of fact, they haven’t done it even once since 2007. The Saints have enough holes that trading back to get at least one more pick in the top 100 makes sense. New Orleans just shouldn’t do it at No. 14. This is not advocating for them to trade up, but staying put in the first round would be smart. Then, look to trade down from No. 45 if you want to stack picks.

New Orleans has a clear need at offensive tackle, arguably at both left tackle and right tackle. They’re in prime position to get a Day 1 starter at either position...

Hayden’s 2024 Mock Draft 2.0

Bowers was one of the most dominant forces in college football the last three seasons. Bowers is a three-time All-American and the only two-time winner of the John Mackey Award for college football’s best TE. He would be an instant starter and an instant contributor and the best TE the New Orleans Saints have had since Jimmy Graham. Despite need on the offensive line, if you have a chance to get a player with upside as great as Bowers at pick 14 at another position of need you would be a fool to pass up on it.

The American Cornhole League is hosting their fifth annual Superhole event, with the qualifying round of the tournament taking place in New Orleans. Not only is it in the city, Saints starters Derek Carr and Juwan Johnson are participating as well. The incentive for victory starts with a $100,000 cash prize for winning it all.

Johnson and Carr aren’t partners, however. Each will be paired with an ACL pro and will compete against other NFL players. Johnson, paired with Frank Modlin, looks to take down Eric Kendricks. Meanwhile Carr, paired with Trevor Kuhfuss, looks to defeat former Saints...

Possible players the Saints could trade on draft night

Not having a third or fourth round pick increases the odds of the New Orleans Saints trading up in this year’s NFL Draft. The Saints do not like to sit and wait till a player drops to them, and this year should not be any different. They could use their copious amounts of day three picks to trade up, but there is another way to acquire earlier picks. On draft night, we have seen some trades over the years that include players for picks, but not too many. I wanted to see what players could be traded away from the Saints and what they would get in return.

Although this might not be the most...

The NFL Draft is just one week away and we’re getting closer and closer to talking about who the New Orleans Saints will actually draft instead of speculation.

However, until that time, the speculation will continue. So here comes another mock draft, but this one has some surprises in it.

I don’t even know how this happened.

This will almost NEVER happen, but Jayden Daniels wearing the Black and Gold would be a ton of fun. Pairing him with an elusive back like AK and pass catchers like Chris Olave, Rashid Shaheed, AT Perry, and more would elevate him to a new level very early in his...
