Saints trying to move up in draft

Others might think it's recklessness.

The Saints received the #14 pick from the Green Bay Packers in exchange for the #27 pick, the #147 pick in the fifth round and a 2019 first round selection.

The New Orleans Saints pulled a first-round stunner by moving all the way up to No. 14 overall in order to select former UTSA defensive end Marcus Davenport.

Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen is ranked 10th by Rang, quarterback Baker Mayfield of Oklahoma is 13th and Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson is 23rd. Even in a pretty wild first round, that was a legitimate "wow" moment.

"With this trade, the Saints are going all in right now", said WWL-TV Sports Director Doug Mouton.

Davenport takes over next to pass rushers like Cameron Jordan and Sheldon Rankins. But that was a lot to move up for Davenport, a player who, for all his physical skills, is still pretty raw and mostly unproven against top competition.

Where this gets interesting is that the Baltimore Ravens are likely to be on that list of teams they're calling. 27 and 147 picks this year as well as next year's first to trade down. They spend in free agency like they have no plan, just some cash in their pocket and and itch to spend it.
