The NFL draft can't get here soon enough, as we're less than two weeks away. To put it lightly, the world has seen enough of COVID-19, and getting sports back would mean a lot at this time. This year's draft will look completely different, as teams will draft remotely. However, the event will still be broadcast on major networks. Assuming the New Orleans Saints do pick in the first round and hold firm at 24th overall, there should be an abundance of talent available to them. Here's a look at who they could be targeting and might be available.

Henry Ruggs III

Wide receiver is going to get addressed at some point in the draft for New Orleans, but the question is what round it might come. This is a very deep wide receiver class, and Henry Ruggs III is going to be a problem for NFL secondaries. The first thing that stands out with the Alabama wideout is his speed, and it's a quality the Saints could use. Assuming Drew Brees doesn't have the deep ball he once did, New Orleans needs to compensate by getting players like Ruggs who can take quick passes in the short and intermediate game and turn them into extra yards. Throw him in the slot or outside, and he'll find success.
