Saints' Al-Quadin Muhammad: Picked by Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints selected Muhammad in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 196th overall.

Muhammad (6-foot-3, 253 pounds) is an edge defender who showed promise early in his Miami (FL) career before character issues derailed his college career. He was dismissed from the team for the 2016 season and didn't play elsewhere, which may have contributed to his disappointing workout numbers (4.88-second 40-yard dash).

Saints' Trey Hendrickson: Third-round selection by Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints selected Hendrickson in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 103rd overall.

Hendrickson wasn't well known after playing on a bad Florida Atlantic defense, but all indications are that he's a fine prospect. At 6-foot-4, 266 pounds, Hendrickson logged a 4.65-second 40-yard dash, adding a 122-inch broad jump, 7.03-second three-cone, and 4.2-second 20-yard shuttle. His production also checks out well -- he totaled 22.5 sacks and 29.5 tackles for loss over the last two years.

Saints' Alex Anzalone: Going to New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints selected Anzalone in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 76th overall.

Anzalone is a bit of a durability worry, but when healthy he was a standout contributor on Florida's dominant defense. He's a very good athlete at the least, running a 4.63-second 40 at 6-foot-3, 241 pounds. He's not necessarily likely to start as a rookie, but the Saints are weak enough at linebacker that it shouldn't be ruled out.

Saints' Alvin Kamara: Selected by Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints selected Kamara in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 67th overall.

Kamara (5-foot-10, 214 pounds) doesn't have the build of a traditional starting running back, and the presences of Mark Ingram and Adrian Peterson assure he won't see such a role anytime soon in New Orleans. Kamara is an explosive and quick runner with superb balance, and he should carve out an immediate part-time role as a pass-catching and hurry-up specialist. That role might not be big enough for fantasy relevance in 2017, but Kamara should force his way to more snaps by 2018.

Saints' Marcus Williams: Second-round Saints pick
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints selected Williams in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft, 42nd overall.

Williams was a ballhawk on a tough Utah defense, finishing 2016 with five interceptions. He went on to show well at the Combine, running a 4.56-second 40-yard dash at 6-foot-1, 202 pounds, adding a 43.5-inch vertical and 129-inch broad jump. He might not play much as a rookie with Kenny Vaccaro and Vonn Bell already at safety in New Orleans.
