Get ready for the NFL Draft with everything you need to know about the New Orleans Saints

    R.J. White mugshot

By R.J. White | CBS Sports

The Saints are square in the middle of their championship window, and nowhere is that more apparent than in their list of 2019 draft picks, as various trades to strengthen their roster leave them with just one pick in the first four rounds. So don't expect their collection of talent to look markedly different the Sunday after the draft as it does right now.

Below, you can check out which picks the Saints currently have, along with our projection of their top positional needs. I'll then build a war-room big board based upon players I think have some kind of chance of making it to their first pick before sharing multiple draft classes that make sense for the team from myself, Ryan Wilson and Chris Trapasso. Good luck on draft day...

2019 New Orleans Saints draft prospects: Gerald Willis III

The New Orleans Saints defensive tackles were instrumental in the success that their defense had a year ago. The team finished second against the run, and allowed just 3.6 yards per carry to opposing backs. New Orleans defensive tackles were also responsible for 15.5 sacks, and a number of disruptions to opposing offenses during the year. Sheldon Rankins played at an All-Pro level much of the year, while David Onyemata developed into a solid interior presence. Tyeler Davison and Taylor Stallworth combined to give the Saints one of the deepest defensive tackle rotations in the league. Rankins suffered an Achilles injury during the playoffs though, and may not return to action until at least midseason. Onyemata may face a league suspension to begin the year due to an offseason arrest, and the Saints lost...

Saints draft preview: With Kamara and Murray, Saints don't see RB as a "must position"

Today, we look at running backs

The New Orleans Saints played four games without Mark Ingram this past season.

This time, they'll have to play all 16 without Ingram, who signed with the Baltimore Ravens in March.

The Saints' 2-headed monster in the backfield may now be a thing of the past, with Alvin Kamara now likely to be the Saints featured back.

It took a few weeks to get going, but Kamara gave a glimpse of what he could do without Ingram during the first four games of the season last year when Ingram was suspended for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances.

2019 New Orleans Saints draft prospects: Terry Godwin

By Bob Rose | CSC

The New Orleans Saints already possess one of the finest receivers in the NFL in Michael Thomas. The Saints passing attack was not as diverse as we've seen in years past in 2018 though. Thomas and running back Alvin Kamara were responsible for a large percentage of the team's aerial production. Veteran deep threat Ted Ginn Jr. and possession receiver Cameron Meredith missed much of 2018 with injury. Rookies Tre'Quan Smith and Keith Kirkwood each showed promise, but were unable to consistently produce during the year. Ginn and Meredith are both back fully healthy for 2019, and the coaches expect a big jump from Kirkwood and Smith in terms of both production and consistency. The Saints have had success at finding productive wideouts in the late rounds of the draft or even as undrafted free agents, and may look to do so again...

Leading up to the draft, we'll take a position-by-position look at the Saints' roster and what direction they may take in the draft. We'll start with the position they need the least help with and work our way up to the biggest need.

Saturday, we look at special teams.

Mike Detillier: SEC will again have major draft impact

By Mike Detillier / Sports Correspondent

The SEC is the best conference in college football.

It has many of the top coaches and assistants, but it also has the highest talent level.

Like a diet, what you put in is what you get out and from year to year you may see a conference have a better upper-tier of teams, but consistently no conference produces more pro players than the SEC.

In the 2017 draft the SEC produced 53 players the most of any conference in college football.

The ACC had 43 players selected, the PAC 12 had 36 players selected, the Big 10 had 35 players picked and the Big 12 had 14 players picked in the 2017 NFL draft class.

In the 2018 NFL draft the SEC again led the pack in producing drafted players with 53 players picked, 10 going in Round 1 and 11 players picked in Round 2.
