The New Orleans Saints still have work to do now that the 2021 NFL draft is in the books, but it’s a good opportunity to take stock of their roster and see where weak areas may persist on the depth chart. Check here for my early projection of the 53-man roster for Week 1.

Let’s get to it, running through the different position groups:
