Trade Up, Draft Ohio State WR chris o

On Thursday night, the Commanders and Saints traded the No. 11 overall pick to New Orleans in exchange for the No. 16 pick

the No. 98 pick in the third round, and the No. 120 pick in the fourth round of the NFL draught.

After Drew Brees's retirement in 2020 and a rocky year in 2021 trying to replace him, many expected the Saints to be looking for a new quarterback.

Instead, wide receiver Chris Olave of Ohio State was selected by the Saints in the 11th round.

 The Jets had previously selected Buckeyes pass catcher Garrett Wilson with the No. 10 overall pick.

First-team All-Big Ten honours were awarded to Olave for a second consecutive season after he racked up 65 receptions for 936 yards and 13 touchdowns

A standout wide receiver at Penn State, he was named to the 2019 Big Ten Third Team.
