With the last-second playoff loss in Minnesota still on the minds of the Who Dat Nation, a lot of fans tell WWL First News that the Saints still need good players on defense.

"We didn't lose that game because of the offense, we lost because of defense," said one fan.

"We could use some help on defense," agreed another. "That's my honest opinion."

But if the Saints need to improve anywhere on their usually stellar offense, there was one position that kept coming up.

"Tight end. Definitely a tight end," said one.

"Maybe trade down, pick up a second rounder and another third rounder, and grab a tight end," another fan told us. "And another defensive back, or pass-rushing defensive end."

The Saints go into the draft tonight with the 27th pick in the first round, and eight picks overall through seven rounds. The Cleveland Brown pick first, with the draft clock starting at 7:00 p.m.
