New Orleans Saints 2021 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 8.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2021 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:

EDSFootball - Hanson (4/1)

28. Tyson Campbell, CB, Georgia

Not only did the Saints release Janoris Jenkins, but Marshon Lattimore (and all of the team's corners) will be unrestricted free agents in 2022 except for Grant Haley (RFA) and Keith Washington (ERFA), per data from Spotrac. And even though the Saints salary-cap situation improves slightly in 2022, only five teams have less salary-cap space in 2022, per Over the Cap.

Former high school teammates with CB1 (Patrick Surtain II) of this mock, Campbell isn't the refined prospect his former high school teammate is, but the former five-star recruit's blend of speed (sub-4.4 forty), size/length (6-foot-1, 32-inch arms) and change-of-direction ability is as special as any cornerback prospect in this draft class.

ESPN - McShay (4/1)

28. Elijah Moore, WR, Mississippi

The cap-strapped Saints' roster took a hit in March, with multiple impact players heading elsewhere for more money or, in the case of Drew Brees, retiring. Will it be Jameis Winston or Taysom Hill at quarterback -- or both? Regardless, New Orleans has to have more weapons in the pass game, especially with Emmanuel Sanders and Jared Cook not coming back. Moore operates mainly out of the slot, and he has the hands and burst to pick up big chunks of yardage. He was second in the nation to DeVonta Smith in catches and yards last season.

Baltimore Sun - Doon (3/31)

28. Greg Newsome, CB, Northwestern

After the departure of Janoris Jenkins, the Saints are thin at corner behind Marshon Lattimore and don't have the cap space to add one. Newsome solidified his status as a first-round pick with strong testing numbers at his pro day after a standout junior season.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 5

It's about time they gave Alvin Kamara more carries. He was special against Minnesota to lock up the division title.
