The New Orleans Saints' 2021 Draft is in the books with the team receiving high grades for their selections.

The Saints decided not to address their defensive secondary in the first-round and surprised some by taking pass rusher Payton Turner from Houston with the 28th pick.

The Saints got kudos for getting linebacker Pete Werner from Ohio State in the second-round, and that needed cornerback in the third round by selecting Paulson Adebo out of Stanford.

New Orleans also addressed their quarterback issues by taking Notre Dame's Ian Book in the fourth round in a move seen as positive since Book should do well in coach Sean Payton's system.
