Saints' Brandon Coleman: Thomas expected to compete with Coleman for snaps
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

The Saints drafted former Ohio State wide receiver Michael Thomas in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft, and according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune, Thomas may be in line for immediate playing time.

Prior to the draft, Coleman was presumed to be the front-runner for the Saints' No. 3 wide receiver job, but the addition of Thomas casts some doubt on that notion. Although not quite the same size as Coleman -- to be fair, at 6-foot-6, not many are -- Thomas is likewise a big target at 6-foot-3, 212 pounds. With Marques Colston no longer in New Orleans, Coleman and Thomas will likely duke it out during the preseason for playing time behind Brandin Cooks and Willie Snead.

Saints' Daniel Lasco: Headed to New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The New Orleans Saints selected Daniel Lasco in the seventh round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 237th overall.

Lasco is an interesting name in dynasty formats after torching the Combine, but he generally doesn't have the appearance of much more than a third-down sort of running back in the NFL. Even if he's more quick than fast, Lasco is a player to watch in training camp, as the Saints depth chart behind Mark Ingram is unsettled.

Saints' David Onyemata: Picked by Saints in fourth round
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

The Saints selected Onyemata in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 120th overall.

The native Canadian is a relative unknown to casual college and NFL fans ecause he played at the University of Manitoba, but he put on an impressive show at the East-West Shrine Game. He's a powerful defensive lineman that primarily played nose tackle at Manitoba, but according to Pro Football Focus, he lined up at 4-3 defensive end during the Shrine Game, which could give a glimpse into how he'll be used at the next level. The Saints have been somewhat porous up front for some time now, but they've addressed the defensive line in this year's draft by taking Onyemata in the fourth round after picking Sheldon Rankins in the first.

Saints' Vonn Bell: Second-round pick by New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The New Orleans Saints selected Vonn Bell in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 61st overall.

The Saints traded up with the Patriots to target Bell, so he must have been a coveted target. It's a slightly strange pick to make with Kenny Vaccaro and Jairus Byrd already present, but perhaps the durability issues of the latter forced the Saints to pursue better depth. Bell made 65 tackles and intercepted two passes for Ohio State in 2015.

Saints' Michael Thomas: Selected by Saints
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The New Orleans Saints selected Thomas in the second round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 47th overall.

Thomas was widely expected to go as many as 25 picks earlier than this, so the Saints likely secured a strong value by drafting him this late. While he might not have the speed or quickness to prove a big-play threat at the pro level, Thomas is a big target (6-foot-3, 212 pounds) with strong fundamentals and sufficient polish to contribute early on in his career. His arrival at the very least is a problem for Brandon Coleman, and Thomas might be able to put pressure on Willie Snead for a starting role as time passes.
