A complete list of New Orleans Saints picks in the 2022 NFL Draft can be found below.

Round 1

PICK #11

New Orleans Saints

Chris Olave

WR, Ohio State

The Saints made an aggressive move up from No. 16 to land another Buckeyes wide receiver to complement Michael Thomas. New Orleans fills a big need but it’s a bit surprising Mickey Loomis didn’t go for a quarterback. This means there’s a commitment to making it work with Jameis Winston by giving him a dynamic big-play threat to match his big arm and play off Thomas’ strong intermediate possession skills.

Grade: A-

(from WAS via PHI via IND)

Round 1

PICK #19

New Orleans Saints

Trevor Penning

OT, Northern Iowa

The Saints had been targeting Penning as their smaller-school replacement for left tackle Terron Armstead, who left for the Dolphins in free agency. Penning has a mean and nasty streak along with his athletic upside in a sturdy frame, making him the ideal bookend for Ryan Ramczyk in front of Winston. With the Olave pick earlier, the Saints are committed to better downfield pocket passing.

Grade: A

(from PHI)

Round 2

PICK #17

New Orleans Saints

Alontae Taylor

CB, Tennessee

The Saints join the Lions in taking a Day 3 talent, but he does feel a need to help in slot coverage with their strengths lying on the perimeter and safety for Dennis Allen. Taylor offers good size and fluidity for zone coverage.

Grade: C

Round 5

PICK #18

New Orleans Saints

D'Marco Jackson

LB, Appalachian State

Round 6

PICK #15

New Orleans Saints

Jordan Jackson

DT, Air Force

(from PHI via IND)
