47. . Edge. New England Patriots. K'Lavon Chaisson. 23. player

The New England Patriots are going to dominate the headlines for the next couple of weeks, as they decide what is going to go on with six-time Super Bowl winner Tom Brady. All the talk this offseason has circled around him, whether he is going to return for another go at it, or take his talents somewhere else.

Regardless of what Brady does, the defensive side of the ball needs help on the edges, and they get some in the person of K’Lavon Chaisson from LSU. This guy proved to be a menace for the Tigers all season long, and on the Patriots, he would fill one of the bigger voids on that side of the ball.

In all honesty, Brady is likely heading back to New England, as he is going to want to have the best chance to win another one. The Patriots need to lock him up, and then work on the roster around him, which is actually thinner than it has been in years.

24. player. 15. . Wide Receiver. New Orleans Saints. Laviska Shenault

The New Orleans Saints got great news this offseason, as quarterback Drew Brees announced early on that he would be returning for another go in 2020. That means they have their future Hall of Fame quarterback back under center this upcoming season, so now they must go out and get him some more weapons.

Michael Thomas is one of the best wide receivers in all of football, but he cannot continue to do it all on his own. Sure, the Saints have some solid pieces around him at the position, but with pick No. 24 overall in the first round, the roll the dice one of the more electric playmakers this draft class has to offer.

Laviska Shenault Jr. from Colorado is dealing with an injury right now, but he will be ready to go for training camp, and would be a perfect fit in this offense. Brees still has the ability to lead this team to a Super Bowl, and if they can fix their issues at wideout, and in the secondary, they have a good chance to get him his second title this season.
