Possible Saints Trades

If you scroll down you’ll find my 2010 Saints Mock Draft (all 6 picks).

But what about the Saints making a trade?

It would not surprise me to see the team move a player or two to pick up players at a ‘need’ position. 

Here are a few considerations:

Trade #1

S/CB Usama Young to Cleveland Browns

DE/OLB David Veikune to New Orleans Saints

With the expected release of Chrles Grant the Saints need help at defensive end and Veikune could fill a need.  a 2nd round choice by the Browns out of the University of Hawaii in 2009 Veikune was considered a bust because he failed to produce and then finished the season on the injured reserve.  I liked Veikune at the Senior Bowl last season and had the Saints taking him in my 2009 mock draft.  Moving back to defensive end in the Saints 4-3 system could perhaps help Veikune. 

The Browns badly need help in the secondary so Young is a logical choice in this deal.  Usama also played his college ball in Ohio and could immediately help Cleveland on special teams.

I’d hate to see the Saints part ways with Usama but the team has solid depth in the secondary so moving him would not be a huge deal.

Trade #2

WR Lance Moore to Philadelphia Eagles

DT Trevor Laws to New Orleans Saints    

With Marques Colston, Robert Meachem and Devery Henderson I’m not sure where Moore fits in even if he’s 100% healthy.

Plus, the Saints still have Adrian Arrington. 

Like Usama Young, Lance More is a classy guy and I’d hate to see him go but the Saints need to upgrade their D-line.

Laws is a player I had in my 2008 Saints mock draft. A bit of an underachiever since being taken in the 2nd round out of Notre Dame Laws could use a change of secenery and is the type of smart classy player Sean Payton would like.

Moore would fit in nicely in Philly as a possession receiver lined-up across the field from DeSean Jackson.
