As we await the NFL Draft, I thought it might be fun to play a little game. Rather than present mock drafts, what if you listed three players that you would like the Saints to have drafted. Assume no trades up or down and try to be realistic. Limit it to three players, please.

"If the Saints finish the draft with players x, y, and z then I will be happy/consider it a successful draft."

For me, if they were to walk away with Kenneth Murray, Chase Claypool (he's 82nd overall on CBS' board), and A.J. Dillon, then I'd say they pretty well cleaned up.

And with Vega$$aint's Amendment:

1st Pick 3-player Cloud: K. Murray, Laviska Shenault, Kristian Fulton

Id be very happy with that.

First round is way too early for Claypool. But in the third? Maybe even with a short trade-up? Definitely.

And Dillion is really impressive.

The best combination I’ve seen was:

Rd 1: Patrick Queen, LSU
Rd 3: Robert Hunt, ULL
Rd 4: KJ Hill, Ohio State

Three favs for round 1 are tough. I guess Jefferson falls off with the Sanders signing so I’d say:

1. CJ Henderson
2. Andrew Thomas
3. Patrick Queen

So I went to First-Pick.com and did a quick draft. No Trades. This was what I came up with. I'd be happy with this...

Don't feel compelled to list just the first three picks in their draft. Just three players you would like them to have drafted.

The Saints are in a really, really good spot with the current roster and where they’re picking. To me this class has about 30 prospects worth really flipping a lid for. Love the 3 I listed, and then there’s Epenesa, McKinney, a handful of corners and Jonathan Taylor that could be huge hits at 24.

I think in the last few drafts, you see a trend within the 20-something picks where some teams will reach for need and some teams will catch the fallers. I hope we are the team that will grab Montez Sweat type when he slips and not the draft Tytus Howard because we’re desperate type..

as for myself, I would love any of the top O-line guys, but don't think any of them fall to us. I would love Jerry Jeudy or Jordan Jefferson, but doubt either falls to us as well.

So my realistic 3 guys are

1. Jalen Reagor
2. Patrick Queen
3. Kenneth Murray

How about this? Last year the Saints drafted McCoy (who was projected to go in the 1st round) in the 2nd and CGJ (who was a late 1st/early 2nd projection) in the 4th round. Which players do you see dropping that could be a steal in the 2nd-4th round?
