This would be a big move!

CINCINNATI — The Saints have the 28th overall pick in tonight's NFL Draft, but they're hoping to move up according to multiple reports. 

"I was told Saints general manager Mickey Loomis is working the phone, trying to trade into the top 10," ESPN's Dianna Russini tweeted. "The primary reason isn’t for a QB, it’s actually for another position. Although, there is 1 QB (not named Trevor) who would change their minds if he was still available."

The Saints are targeting Oregon tackle Penei Sewell according to Mike Fisher of CowboysSi.com.

New Orleans has three third-round picks. They'd likely have to give up multiple selections, including No. 28 and a future first to get into the top-10 to take Sewell or any of the other elite prospects.

The Lions, Panthers and Broncos may be willing to trade down if the price is right. The Bengals probably wouldn't entertain a move that far down the board, unless they were blown away by an offer.
