Let's just say the Saints magically moved up to the top ten selections of the draft and these players below were available. Which one would Sean Payton select?

He would select Pitts then Chase. Chase is going to be an absolute stud, but I don't see CSP passing on the mismatch that Pitts is. With that said, Chase does NOT have a hole in his game and is a generational talent at WR. Pitts does have a hole and it's blocking, but that can be corrected with training and willingness to become a better blocker.

Edit: Chase isn't falling out of the top 5.

To make that choice means we have the 4th pick, if not the 3rd pick. In which case, I just trade up and get Trevor.

Hard to say between the TE and receivers although this particular TE can do receiver things. Really depends on what our new offense will be about. For the first time in 15 years I have no clue as to what we will look like offensively. We've had more success with late round/UDFA receivers than we've had trying for replace Jimmy so I'll go with the TE.

Pipe dream scenario? Well then, how about this...Justin Fields continues to be underrated & under appreciated on into draft day & slides out of the top 10. Saints trade up to 12 w/the Eagles & draft JUSTIN FIELDS.

But wait...we’re not done! After an epic 1st RD move, Saints manage to get back into the top of the 2nd RD & draft the fallen Caleb Farley.

& the cherry on top... We bundle our two 3rd RD comps to move to the top of the 3rd & nab Rashod Bateman.

We use a ton of future picks, in wild two day spending spree, but the future is now w/Fields Farely & Bateman.

Chase field talent reminds me of Antonio Brown . hands, footwork, route running but he’s faster

Pitts is a rare lifetime talent! He’s Graham in his prime but with Vernon Davis Speed ! That’s scary

either option wouldn’t be a bad choice

however if we’re using J.Jefferson as a measuring stick with Chase we could see the greatest rookie season ever in the right O

TE, Kyle Pitts.
The combination of his size and blazing speed at Tight End would make defenses impossible to defend the pass.
Who to defend ? speed across all aspects of the field at any position, then Kamara and Latavious Murray.
Forget about it. It's over.

Tough call here lol but a team with MT already on the team, think you have to choose Chase or Waddle for their speed and deep threat capabilities Smith and Pitts fall in the MT category more than a deep threat WR
