New Orleans Saints Draft Picks 2018: Recap & Analysis

New Orleans Saints:

Pick Team Player Pos School
14 Saints(f/Packers) Marcus Davenport DE UTSA
91 Saints TreQuan Smith WR Central Florida
127 Saints Rick Leonard OT Florida State
164 Saints Natrell Jamerson S Wisconsin
189 Saints(f/Cardinals) Kamrin Moore CB Boston College
201 Saints Boston Scott RB Louisiana Tech
245 Saints Willian Clapp C LSU

Analysis: The Saiints draft is a weird one, they traded a 2019 1st-round pick, to get to 14th overall, but they didn’t take who everyone thought they would, Lamar Jackson, but instead Marcus Davenport, who is a solid player, but is he worth giving up a 2019 1st for him? They added TreQuan Smith to their WR corps, while adding Tackle Rick Leonard, as a potential swing Tackle. They also added 2 solid DBs, CB Kamrin Moore, and S Natrell Jamerson. Plus they added the ultra versatile William Clapp, who can play G or C. So all in all, I like what the Saints did, but that 2019 1st is a huge price to pay for an edge rusher.
