With the first pick of the final day of the 2023 NFL draft, the Saints have selected Old Dominion offensive lineman Nick Saldiveri.

The Saints traded up to the top of the fourth round to draft Saldiveri, sending their own fourth-round pick as well as the Eagles’ fifth-round pick to the Bears to get the first pick in Round Four.

The 6-foot-6, 317-pound Saldiveri is recognized as a good athlete with a lot of potential, although he’s raw and may not be ready to start as a rookie.

The Saints think Saldiveri can develop into a player who can contribute, and they like him enough that they traded up to get him.

  1. Shoot. He was going to be a Patriot at pick #5 of the 4th round. This pickup and the Jake Haener pick tell me the Saints are on top of Day 3 of the draft for sure. Good job.
