The first 10 picks from the 2022 draft were revealed with no overnight trades. The first trade occurred at pick number 11.

The Saints climbed from No. 16, in a trade that combined that selection with picks No. 98 and 120 that go to Washington’s leaders.

With this top selection, the Saints chose Ohio State recipients Chris Olaf.

The former Buckeye joins Michael Thomas in the depth scheme, bolstering a pass-catching squad for a team hoping to enter the post-Sean Payton era with a strong attack.

Payton recently played down the expectations of the Saints taking a receiver in the first round. They still have another pick in the first round, 19th.

These are three receivers taken in the first eleven selections.
