The New Orleans Saints were one botched call away from being in the Super Bowl. That wound hasn't healed, but you know what the perfect remedy for that is? Winning. The Saints are going to be on a revenge tour this season but in order to pull it off and win the championship, they need to fill a few holes first.
Here are three depth signings the Saints can make before the draft.
3. De'Anthony Thomas
Adding to this talented offensive group might be silly but the Saints certainly need help at wide receiver. They have Michael Thomas and added Jared Cook but aside from them, Brees is throwing to a ton of question marks. They badly need help in the slot and there are numerous veterans available, but the perfect compliment to this offense would be a versatile player like Thomas who has a lot to prove. Thomas is a speedy option who can fill in the middle of the field and could also head to the backfield to fill a Darren Sproles-like role for this team.
2. Jeff Allen
The most important thing now, like it always has been, is to keep Drew Brees upright. This team had a solid offensive line a year ago but Max Unger and Jeremy Bushrod bother retired, Terron Armstead can never play a full season, and Andrus Peat has struggled at times. Adding a player like Allen who can play both tackle and guard would be huge for a team already desperate for big bodies.
1. Corey Liuget
New Orleans has Malcolm Brown from New England and Sheldon Rankins in house but they need more firepower in the middle. Liuget is one of the more underrated players on the market after an injury-plagued 2018 season. Still, he finished with 14 tackles, five QB hits, a sack and a half in just six games and three starts. Playing on a talented defensive line in New Orleans would only make him even better.
