  Saints | Safety a need in NFL Draft    Mon Apr 25, 01:31 AM

The New Orleans Saints may make the safety position a priority for them in the NFL Draft because they only have one safety under contract (S Malcolm Jenkins), reports Sheldon Mickles, of The Advocate. The team would like to have S Roman Harper, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent, return, and there is a chance S Darren Sharper may be brought back.

Footballguys view: This Safety class isn't that strong, so the Saints are going to get a premium player this year. They could select someone like Clemson's DeAndre McDaniel in the second-round if he's on the board.
