Maybe it’s time we start mentioning Trey Hendrickson as more than an afterthought when rattling off the Saints’ historically great 2017 NFL Draft class.

Baker, it turns out, was the only cornerback to go in Round 1 — seven went […]

2020 NFL Draft tight end rankings: Cole Kmet leads the way, but playmakers available in later rounds
