Since 2006 under Payton/Loomis, Saints have found some great players in Rds 3-7. Here is some draft profile info I found for 15 good finds (red font is what I believe reasoning is player outperformed draft spot):

- Jahri Evans (4th) - Bloomsburg - 6'5" 318, 5.25 forty, 3-yr LT starter, went to college on Academic scholarship
- Rob Ninkovich (5th) - Purdue - 6'3" 260, 4.93 forty, 6.96 3-cone, 2 YR JC to Purdue, 3-4 OLB / 4-3 DE tweener
- Zach Strief (7th) - Northwestern - 6'8" 349, 5.38 forty, played 3 sports HS, 40 RT starts college, Honor Student, fell in draft with back issues
- Marques Colston (7th) -
Hofstra - 6'5" 224, 4.54 forty, 6.94 3-cone, 3-yr starter
- Jermon Bushrod (4th) - Towson - 6'5" 318, 4.97 forty, played 3 sports HS, 4-yr LT starter
- Carl Nicks (5th) - Nebraska - 6'5" 343, 5.26 forty, 31 bench reps, New Mexico St. to JC to Nebraska, LT starter in college
- Jimmy Graham (3rd) - Miami - 6'7" 260, 4.56 forty, 38.5" vert, 1 yr college football after leaving BB team
- Akiem Hicks (3rd) - Regina, Canada, 6'5" 318, 5.21 forty, 35 1/8" arms, 26 bench reps, 7.39 3-cone, 2 YR JC to LSU to Canada
- Terron Armstead (3rd) - Arkansas - Pine Bluff, 6'5" 305, 4.71 forty, 31 bench reps, on track team in college
- Kenny Stills (5th) - Oklahoma - Jr. - 6'1" 194, 4.38 forty, father pro (1st rd pick), 3 sports HS, 3-yr starter college (including all 14 true freshman games)
- David Onyemata (4th) - Manitoba, Canada, 6'4" 300, 5.12 forty, 33 bench reps, from Nigeria to Canada for college, never saw football until college
- Alvin Kamara (3rd) - Tennessee - Jr. - 5'10" 214, 4.56 forty, 39.5" vert, Alabama to JC to Tennessee, 131 SPARQ
- Alex Anzalone (3rd) - Florida - Jr., 6'3" 241, 4.63 forty, 6.88 3-cone, shoulder injuries college
- Chauncey Gardner-Johnson (4th)Florida-
Jr., 5'11" 210, 4.48 forty, 36" vert, S / CB tweener
- Kaden Ellis (7th) - Idaho - 6'2" 238, 4.68 forty, 34.5" vert, 6.49 3-cone, father pro (1st rd pick), 4-yr starter

Some trends: small schools and transfers, multiple sport athletes and great athletic profiles, limited experience or small school stars

Who is that 3-7 Rd pick this year that will make this list in the future and why will they outperform their draft spot?

That's some serious talent in the back half of the draft. No clue who it will be this year, but I'm looking forward to seeing Kaden Ellis on the field.
