The New Orleans Saints own two selections in the fourth round of the 2009 NFL Draft. The Saints pick #116 overall and #118 in the fourth round and then will wrap up the day with a seventh-round pick (#222).
In the first-round of the 2009 Draft, the Saints selected two-time All-American and Jim Thorpe Award winner (as the nation’s top defensive back in 2008) CB Malcolm Jenkins.
With their first draft choice of the second day of the draft, the Saints selected Wake Forest S Chip Vaughn with the 116th pick overall (fourth round). The 6-2, 220-pound product becomes the second defensive back selected by the Saints in the 2009 Draft.
The Saints then tabbed another Wake Forest product in LB Stanley Arnoux, a 6-1, 250 pound linebacker (from the New York Jets as part of the trade that landed the Saints starting MLB Jonathan Vilma in 2008).
