Draft Grade: Check, Check, Check
Draft hyperbole and expressions are best saved for teams that are starting from scratch. In reality, teams that have good rosters don’t just take the best player available, or let the draft fall to them. You have needs, and you get players that fill those needs.
The Saints needed an interior lineman, in particular one that can play center. They need safeties. Picks one, two, and three attacked those needs.
They didn’t have a lot of draft picks, but they identified their needs and drafted players to fill deficiencies on their roster. That is how you draft well when you have a good roster.
