Saints coach Sean Payton has said they’re “always” in the quarterback market, and that extends to a possible first-rounder in this year’s draft.Patrick Mahomes

According to Herbie Teope of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, Payton was in Lubbock yesterday to put Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes through a private workout.

At the moment, the Saints have two first-round picks (11th and 32nd) and a second (42), but have expressly stated the need to improve their defense.

But with 38-year-old quarterback Drew Brees entering the final year of his contract, it would be irresponsible to not have an eye to the future there, so Payton’s doing his homework.

Personally, I have Mahomes ranked as my No.1 QB in the 2017 NFL Draft and I think he could be a great fit in New Orleans. Sitting behind a future Hall-of-Famer for a season is perfect for Mahomes who still needs a little seasoning before taking control of an NFL offense.
