Todd McShay’s third 2014 NFL mock draft for 2014 is out on ESPN Insider today.
For the Saints, cornerback is the top need. They have very little salary cap wiggle room to help that spot in free agency, so it is quite possible that they use their first-round pick to find a partner for Keenan Lewis. Drafting a safety to team with last year’s promising first-rounder, Kenny Vaccaro, also makes a lot of sense if Malcolm Jenkins moves on in free agency, which seems likely.
On the other side of the ball, the offensive line might need a right tackle and/or center when the draft rolls around, but Sean Payton understands where his bread is buttered and it wouldn’t shock me if the Saints just can’t pass on a promising wide receiver in Round 1.
