Saints Draft Stanley Jean-Baptiste In Second Round
NEW ORLEANS (WDSU) -- The New Orleans Saints have selected Nebraska cornerback Stanley Jean-Baptiste in Friday night's second round of the NFL draft.
Jean-Baptiste, selected 58th overall, joins a defense that ranked fourth in the NFL last season, and he'll be able to learn from a highly accomplished cornerback in Champ Bailey, whom the Saints acquired in free-agency this offseason.
The 6-foot-3, 218-pound Jean-Baptiste was among top performers in both the vertical jump and broad jump at the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis.
He intercepted four passes for Nebraska last season, returning one for a touchdown.
New Orleans entered Friday without a pick in the third round, having traded it to Arizona during Thursday night's first round that allowed the Saints to take Oregon State receiver Brandin Cooks 20th overall.
