After a fast start in free agency, the Saints are starting to look forward to the April 26-27 draft.

With the 10th pick in the first round, the team will most likely try to add a quality defensive player to help complete a mini-makeover of the NFL's 26th-ranked unit this past season.

Even though they've already added two linebackers, a cornerback and a backup defensive end, the Saints could still be in the market for a defensive tackle, or perhaps another linebacker or cornerback in the first two rounds of the draft.

1. Linebacker: The Saints moved to get more athletic in the middle with the acquisition of Jonathan Vilma, but getting a young player to pair with Scott Fujita on the outside remains a possibility. Free-agent signee Dan Morgan will likely move from the middle to the weak side, but the Saints could attempt to further upgrade the position for the future in the draft. Full Story – CBS Sportsline
