Potential Draft Day Trade for Saints with Bears?
Today's the 2018 NFL Draft, the Saints, as of now, are selecting at 27th in the first round. What should the team do with their first round pick?
There are rumors that the team might trade up, could it be with the Bears? There is a possibility there as the General Manager is Ryan Pace, who has big time ties with the Saints organization.
Operations Assistant- New Orleans Saints (2001)
Scouting Assistant- New Orleans Saints (2002–2003)
Professional Personnel Scout- New Orleans Saints (2004–2006)
Director of Professional Scouting- New Orleans Saints (2007–2012)
Director of Player Personnel- New Orleans Saints (2013–2014)
On the Dan Patrick Show this morning, Mike Mayock of the NFL Network hinted at the idea of the Saints moving up in order to select a potential successor for their Hall of Fame Quarterback:
Emory Hunt of Football Gameplan has said that he believes Lamar Jackson is the most talented player in the 2018 NFL Draft. The asking price would be to swap first round picks, then the Saints would most likely have to give up a later pick in this draft, first rounder for next year, and maybe even another pick or a player.
It is quite the haul of picks but if New Orleans believes that Jackson will be their future quarterback then it might all be worth it.
