New Orleans Saints Mock Draft Roundup 2.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2024 NFL Draft, we will update our New Orleans Saints Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the New Orleans Saints from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Saints:

The Draft Network - Ryan Fowler (1/14)

14. Taliese Fuaga, OT, Oregon State

I wouldn't be shocked if Taliese Fuaga ends up being the top tackle from this class five years down the line. A man mover in the run game that can single-handedly distort his side of the line of scrimmage, more consistency in his pass sets will allow Fuaga to reach his potential quickly. I can't wait to see him at the Senior Bowl.

San Diego Union-Tribune - Eddie Brown (1/12)

14. JC Latham, OT, Alabama

The Saints are another team who wouldn't surprise me if they targeted a QB, but if they stay the course with Derek Carr, they'll need to upgrade his protection after he took a beating this season. Latham is a super-sized tackle (6-6, 360) with elite strength and movement skills.

The 33rd Team - Marcus Mosher (1/12)

14. JC Latham, OT, Alabama

The New Orleans Saints swung and missed on Trevor Penning, who wasn't even the No. 3 tackle for them this season. With the future uncertain for Ryan Ramczyk, the Saints have to add offensive line help through the draft.

JC Latham is a monster offensive tackle, measuring in at 6-foot-6, 360 pounds. He might be best suited to play right tackle in the NFL, but that might not be New Orleans' biggest area of need.

NBC Sports - Connor Rogers (1/11)

14. Laiatu Latu, EDGE, UCLA

Latu is one of the best stories of this draft, going from being medically retired to posting back-to-back double digit sack seasons. His pass rush tool box is deep, showing off a variety of moves and refined hands to create a pathway to the quarterback.

ESPN - Jordan Reid (1/10)

14. JC Latham, OT, Alabama

The Saints have historically shown commitment to the trenches in the early rounds, and considering that Trevor Penning hasn't lived up to his first-round billing and Ryan Ramczyk battled knee injuries this season, offensive tackle should be a high priority in New Orleans. Latham is a massive 6-foot-5, 350-pound player with power at the point of attack and good quickness. He is a dominant run-blocker, able to take away defenders quickly once he gets his hands on them. If he lands in a scheme that prioritizes downhill running, Latham has the potential to be a reliable starter.

The Athletic - Nick Baumgardner (1/10)

14. Rome Odunze, WR, Washington

There could be an early run on receivers, meaning Odunze might not be on the board this late. The best of Michael Penix Jr.'s fabulous Washington WR trio, Odunze is a powerful, big-bodied leaper with enough speed and wiggle to play X, Z or slot in the league. He would pair well long-term with Chris Olave.

USA Today - Michael Middlehurst-Schwartz (1/9)

14. JC Latham, OT, Alabama

An unexpected addition to the Saints' growing list of issues was the late-season revelation that Ryan Ramczyk faces an uncertain future due to a cartilage defect in his knee. If New Orleans' woes up front grow even more urgent, Latham warrants strong consideration as a potential replacement at right tackle who is capable of becoming a high-level starter.
