It has been a tense few days for the New Orleans Saints with star Running Back Alvin Kamara skipping some practice time due to a contract dispute. Word came out that the Saints were willing to trade Kamara in the midst of the mini holdout. He did return to practice on Wednesday and the two sides seem to be closing in on a deal that will keep him a Saint. With that fire seemingly dying out, the defending NFC South champions can focus on repeating as Division Champions and looking to rid themselves of the recent playoff demons and get back to the Super Bowl.

The biggest weakness of the Saints is arguably the linebacking corps, with Demario Davis and Kiko Alonso both getting older. Each have contracts expiring at the end of the 2020 season. Rookie Zack Baun should be developed into a starter and take over one of the open slots, but bringing in a thumper like Alabama's Dylan Moses would give the Saints a solid young duo to pair with Alex Anzalone in the middle of the defense.

SAINTS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
