Saints Rumors: Saints to trade up in draft for wide receiver?

In Saints rumors today, the New Orleans Saints could be looking to the 2014 NFL Draft as the place to boost their wide receiving corps.

So says Mike Triplett of, who states that "the combination of the Saints' need for a dynamic young receiver, combined with the depth of quality options available to make it a likely proposition" that the New Orleans Saints will draft a wide receiver in the first three rounds of May's NFL Draft.

However, according to Triplett, if the Saints are to get the receiver who, in all likelihood, could be at the top of their draft board, they may have to make a move:

"It seems like a long shot that Odell Beckham Jr. will fall to the Saints at No. 27... I think Beckham would be an outstanding fit for the Saints because he could bring that dynamic speed element they're missing in both the receiving corps and the return game. But they'd probably have to trade up to get him."

While it is merely conjecture at the present moment, Beckham's stock is getting high enough to where the Saints may look into making this rumor a reality.
