Tommy Stevens selected No. 240 by New Orleans Saints

The New Orleans Saints have selected quarterback Tommy Stevens with the No. 240 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

Stevens comes out of Mississippi State and has been compared to Taysom Hill. Perhaps coach Sean Payton will think up some creative ways to get him involved. We already know New Orleans is infatuated with Hill's "playmaking" ability.

New Orleans Saints ‘exploring’ moving up into the 2nd round of the Draft

According to sources, the Saints are calling teams that have picks at the top part of the second round to see if they can move up in the Draft. Currently, New Orleans doesn’t pick again until #88 overall in the third round.

Fantasy Impact

The Saints don’t have a second round selection in the 2020 Draft, so it makes sense that they’d want to move up into the second round of what is a very deep Draft. New Orleans has a need at both LB and CB, and there are multiple options still available. Since they don’t have a second-round pick to offer in a trade, it may take a future 2021 Draft pick for New Orleans to move up the board.

New Orleans Saints not afraid to draft a QB?

The New Orleans Saints are “not afraid to pull that trigger” on a QB in the draft, said Saints’ General Manager Mickey Loomis.

Fantasy Impact

“If there’s someone that we really like and have a vision for that we are picking, then we are not afraid to pull that trigger,” said Loomis. Drew Brees has two years remaining in his contract, and will become an analyst at NBC Sports once his current deal is done. The team currently has Drew Brees and Taysom Hill on the QB depth chart and could look to add another one via the draft. “I think anytime you have a chance to get a quality quarterback prospect, regardless of your quarterback situation, you’ll like to take full advantage of that,” Loomis added. It remains to be seen what the Saints do as they search for Brees’ replacement in the near future.

Sean Payton tests positive for coronavirus

New Orleans Saints D/ST struggles in Wild Card loss

The New Orleans Saints D/ST surrendered 362 total yards and 26 points in Sunday's Wild Card playoff loss to the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact

The Saints defense had played better at home this season, but they came up short when it mattered the most. They clearly missed Sheldfon Rankings and Marcus Davenport. The Saints will look to regroup for another run in 2020.
