Just curious with the circumstances we are under, if technology will be in their favor, or will it be just an average play it safe draft? They have been well above average the past couple of years.....

Well, I feel our later picks have a little more value due to the disruption in face to face scouting/ interview

I hope so! Their worst draft together so far has to be 2018.

That's true for sure, but I'm a little concerned about their interactions with other teams about trades or updates. Wondering what kinda problems will occur under the circumstances?

I think we use our draft picks and come out with 3 starters (QB, LB, G) which means that they package a pick or two to move up to grab a specific player.

Saints don't have many holes and with Brees possibly retiring this year and you only have one QB behind him I think QB is a high priority superceding any other position.

I'm pretty sure it's relatively the same. landline phones and faxes.

Aslong Cleveland figure out how to send a fax. I think other teams will be on top of it. Hopefully, Saint's aren't using Cox internet. lol

I do wonder if with everything that’s going on virtually and all the pro days missed if that will hurt us or help us. I do know this the udfa will be more important this yr than ever. There’s gonna be a few stars I think that go undrafted

Don’t know what to think. I understand the idea of not needing an awful lot, but the more swings you get, the better chance you have of hitting. 75% of the league has 7 or more picks. The Saints and KC enter this draft with the least capital (5 picks each). We’ve gotta nail 3 out of 5 IMO.

I don't feel we have much draft capital this year to be very exciting. Hope I am wrong.

The Saints can't resist moving up. Twice in the 2019 draft and 17 times in the past 13 years. I'ts almost a lock we'll do it again in 2020.. We covit, we go get it

I'm wondering if any teams will be so concerned with making picks without their typical scouting routines that they make some moves to acquire picks next year, or just to move down to reduce the risk. All the data teams collect from the face to face meetings and visiting workouts, pro-days, etc is practically non-existant.
