NFL Draft Board Breakdown
Dane Brugler puts Fabian Moreau in latest NFL Mock Draft
Dane Bruglar, of CBS Sports, put Favian Moreau in his latest NFL mock draft. Bruglar sent Moreau to the New Orlean Saints with pick number 32.
New Orleans Saints and New England Patriots Trade
The New England Patriots originally owned pick number 32 of the 2017 NFL draft. But the Patriots traded their first round pick to New Orleans, along with a third round pick, for Brandin Cooks.
New Orleans Saints Draft and Free Agency Needs
According to UPI, the New Orleans Saints top three needs in free agency and the draft are cornerback, offensive tackle, and running back.
It works in Fabian Moreau’s favor that the New Orleans Saints need a cornerback most. But a couple factors are working against Moreau’s first round draft chances.
First of all, Fabian Moreau is the 13th cornerback to show up as a potential first round cornerback draft choice. The other, is that it appears the New Orleans Saints are trying to address their cornerback need through free agency/trade by making another deal with the New England Patriots to get cornerback Malcolm Butler
Bottom line is that Fabian Moreau would need a lot of chips to fall in place for a team to draft him in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft. But as a converted cornerback with a high ceiling, his NFL career could out perform his initial draft position.
