How should New Orleans Saints feel about their 2017 NFL Draft class after three years? We take a deep dive into it.

The 2016 New Orleans Saints season finished with one of their only losing records of the decade. They went 7-9 in that season and finished third in the NFC South and were left out of the 2016-17 NFL playoffs.

Drew Brees ended up being their only Pro-Bowler. Therefore, the New Orleans Saints had a lot of work to do to gear up for the next season. That year, they also ended up losing G Jahri Evans, CB B.W. Webb, and RB Tim Hightower in the offseason.

They started out the rebuilding process by signing G Larry Warford from Detroit, LB A.J. Klein from Carolina, WR Ted Ginn from Carolina, and RB Adrian Peterson from Minnesota. Along with a handful of other free agency signees, the Saints were off and running.

The next key to building up the 2017 team was the 2017 NFL Draft. The New Orleans Saints had two first-round picks, one second-round pick, three third-round picks, and a sixth-round pick. Therefore, the Saints had seven rookies coming in from the draft.
