In his latest mock draft, ESPN expert Todd McShay has an early run on quarterbacks. While there’s an outside chance the Saints could be looking in that direction to find the eventual heir for Drew Brees, the position doesn’t currently appear to be the top priority in the coming NFL draft to be held in Dallas.
