Saints 2019 Rookie Class Making Their Presence Felt Down the Stretch
The New Orleans Saints 2017 Draft Class is already perhaps the best in the franchise’s 53-year history. The team selected Pro Bowlers Marshon Lattimore, Ryan Ramczyk, and Alvin Kamara in the first three rounds of that draft. They also added starters Marcus Williams and Alex Anzalone along with a key reserve in Trey Hendrickson. Those five players joined Sheldon Rankins, Michael Thomas, Vonn Bell, and David Onyemata, added in the 2016 draft, to form the nucleus of one of the NFL’s most talented teams.
New Orleans has a 34-10 record over the last three seasons and has won three consecutive division championships. They have built themselves into one of the Super Bowl favorites in part because of smart drafting. The Saints added a handful of rookies in this past spring’s 2019 NFL Draft playing bigger roles as we head into the final stretch of the year. Today we talk about those players, and how they will play a vital role in the Saints’ pursuit of a Super Bowl Championship.
