First-round quarterbacks growing popular in 2022 Saints mock drafts

We know where the New Orleans Saints are picking in the 2022 NFL draft. We have an idea of which positions they’ve valued strongest in recent years. And we can make an educated guess at where they need the most help in ranking their draft needs. But there’s little agreement in which specific prospects the Saints will be targeting in April.

That makes sense. It’s very early in the draft process — New Orleans’ scouts haven’t yet hit the road for the pro day workouts circuit, and big draft events like the Senior Bowl (something they value highly) and the annual NFL Scouting Combine are still ahead. And few teams have thrown more curve balls early in the draft than the Saints lately.

Still, it’s good to keep up with the latest 2022 mock drafts to get an idea of which prospects might be available when the black and gold get on the clock. And at this early juncture, quarterbacks are a popular pick for the Saints at 18th overall:

The pick: QB Matt Corral, Ole Miss

Author: Dane Brugler

Author’s take:

“The Saints are in limbo with their quarterback situation, but Corral could be the answer that Sean Payton has been looking for. The Ole Miss quarterback has the athleticism of Taysom Hill coupled with an explosive arm and passing instincts to create big plays through the air.”
