The NFL Draft Combine has come and gone for 2024, and we saw some eye-popping performances. We saw Texas wide receiver Xavier Worthy break the 40 yard dash speed record, then Holy Cross offensive lineman CJ Hanson came out of nowhere for a 9'7 broad jump, and Michigan quarterback JJ McCarthy shot up draft boards once he started talking to teams.

However, none of those three players we just mentioned are inline to be selected by the New Orleans Saints in the first round of the NFL Draft.

In the 2024 NFL Draft, the Saints are picking at 14th overall in the first round, unless there's a trade to be made. But we're not going to get into the weeds on predicting a trade, we're just going to look at what the Saints are planning to do if they have to make a pick at 14. Which is probably going to be based on need.

Looking over what most NFL insiders are saying, the Saints will need an offensive tackle, edge rusher, corner back, or defensive lineman. While a lot of fans would like to see the team get a top level offensive line prospect, those might not be available at the spot the Saints are picking. So a lot of the mock drafts think the Saints will end up with a defensive player. ...

Hubbard’s 2024 Mock Draft: Saints find hidden value late in the draft

With the NFL Combine officially over, it’s about time for everyone to start releasing their new and improved mock drafts. There are a couple different sites you can use to create your own personal mock draft, but I’m using Pro Football Network’s mock draft simulator because it’s free for everyone.

I’m not making any trades, even though I’m sure the New Orleans Saints will be aggressive at some point. Whether that’s in the early rounds or the late rounds, I don’t know, but you know it’s nearly a guarantee that the Saints will trade up for their guy at some point.

With that said, let’s get...

Free agency begins in a little over a week, followed by the draft a month later. As the days count down to the start of the new league year, the New Orleans Saints’ coaches are meeting with scouts and front office personnel to decide which areas they prefer to address in free agency versus the draft. Roster management is an ongoing endeavor.

Some questions will keep coming up. There are clear voids to fill on the team, but the Saints will also need to choose whether to keep some players or let them walk away. These four decisions will shape New Orleans’ overall approach to the offseason:

Saints get Bryan Bresee a tag-team partner in TD Wire's post-combine mock draft

How did the NFL Scouting Combine shake up everyone’s plans for the 2024 draft? In this post-combine mock draft from Touchdown Wire’s Doug Farrar, the New Orleans Saints picked a new tag-team partner for Bryan Bresee in Illinois defensive tackle Johnny Newton at No. 14 overall.

Newton, who went by Jer’Zhan in college, didn’t participate in athletic testing at the combine while recovering from Jones fracture surgery in his foot — he’s expected to work out at his pro day in April — but he did meet with teams and by all accounts left a good impression.

And he checked every box at weigh-ins...

New onside kick rules could be coming, per report

The NFL Competition Committee is discussing new rule changes that could go to a vote at the upcoming Annual League Meeting that will take place March 24th-27th. NFL Network Insider, Tom Pelissero, reported Sunday. In a change proposed by special teams’ coordinators, the NFL is considering a new rule that would only allow onside kicks to be used when a team is trailing in the fourth quarter and would require them to declare the onside attempt in advance. According to the report, if a team declares an onside attempt, they could be allowed to use an unbalanced (6x4) formation in order to...

As the second day of the NFL Combine came to an end, many players upped their draft stock with tremendous performances in front of NFL scouts. What may not have seemed like a very important day for the New Orleans Saints earlier this offseason, now seems like possibly the most important.

On the second day of the NFL Combine, the very best tight ends and defensive backs in college football all received the opportunity to display their best first impressions prior to entering into the NFL. This became a big day for the Saints as we still do not know what the team will do with CB Marshon...

Speculation is picking up on what the New Orleans Saints may do with cornerback Marshon Lattimore this offseason. It makes sense — the pro football world just gathered in Indianapolis for the NFL Scouting Combine and Lattimore’s unique contract restructure signaled to teams that he could be available in a trade. But what could the Saints get back from him?

In an otherwise very thorough, informative, and well-conceived analysis of the situation, Over The Cap’s Jason Fitzgerald missed the mark in suggesting what sort of compensation the Saints could hope for in trading Lattimore. When...

Saints ST coach Darren Rizzi leading onside kick rules change proposal

Successful onside kicks have become a rare thing in the NFL as health and safety-minded rules changes cut down on opportunities for teams to design a clever play, but New Orleans Saints special teams coordinator Darren Rizzi is working to reverse that.

Rizzi workshopped a proposal with other special teams coordinators around the league (namely the Dallas Cowboys’ John Fassel and Chicago Bears’ Richard Hightower, per the MMQB’s Albert Breer) to present to the NFL competition committee with hopes of making the game’s third phase more exciting while keeping player safety in mind.
