Original pick: Traded to New England Patriots, who took Jerod Mayo, ILB, Tennessee
New pick: Carl Nicks, OG, Nebraska
The Saints originally took Nicks (above) in the fifth round of this draft, making the two-time All Pro probably the biggest steal of 2008. This time around, the Saints would have to secure his services in the first round.
