2025 NFL Mock Draft

Selection Comment - Pick #7

Return to Mock Draft

New Orleans
Mason Graham



Due to a predicted sub-par season, the Saints earn a solid position in this mock draft... What is peculiar about this prediction is that the Saints had one of the easier schedules last season. The team's opponents owned a .433 winning percentage. Since 2001, only 13 other teams faced an easier schedule. And the black-and-gold did have some nice accomplishments last season. The team excelled in the turnover battle, finishing 3rd best in the NFL with a +11 in turnover margin. Plus, despite all the criticism thrust upon him, Derek Carr had the 2nd lowest INT rate of his career (1.5 percent) and his 7 fumbles were the 3rd lowest total of his career... Yet, the Saints failed to make the playoffs.

A Top-10 pick could not come at a better time. The 2024 Saints will be old and expensive. Due to management decisions to hold on to players, the team now has a roster filled with older veterans approaching the tail ends of their careers. The Saints have 27 players hitting free agency in 2025. ... There is a need at every basically position.
