On episode No. 70 of The Draft Analysts, Chris Tripodi and Tony Pauline wrap up their NFC South draft reviews with the New Orleans Saints and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They discuss how New Orleans came away with two top-60 prospects in former Texas A&M center Erik McCoy and ex-Florida defensive back Chauncey Gardner-Johnson despite limited early-round picks after several 2018 trades, along with several upside fliers in the late rounds and free agency. The duo then breaks down a defensive-focused draft for the Bucs, including former LSU Tigers linebacker Devin White replacing the departed Kwon Alexander and spending three second-day picks on defensive backs.
