Do the Saints need to trade for a second-round pick? What would it take?

Try to find a spot on the Saints' roster where they need significant help.

Wide receiver? Most teams would do just about anything to have Mike Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders at the top of the depth chart.

Linebacker? Not if everyone stays healthy.

Cornerback? Having two of the league's best players at the position isn't enough?

There are areas to tweak and bolster, but it would be intellectually dishonest if someone argued the Saints had to take a player at a specific position. But getting some players who can make an immediate impact since this could be Drew Brees' last season still might be a high priority.

That's why the Saints might need to consider trading back into the second round seriously. The question is, what would it take, and how necessary is a move to get the players they covet?
