Stanley Jean-Baptiste has the kind of name that makes you think he’s from New Orleans.
Now he’ll spend the next four years there.
The Saints announced their second-round pick had signed his rookie contract Saturday.
The 6-foot-3 cornerback from Nebraska likely benefitted in the draft process from the recent success of the bigger cornerbacks in Seattle, but he had his own resume to lean on, with seven interceptions in college, four of them coming last year.
He’ll have a chance to establish himself in a secondary in flux, giving them a big, physical complement to Keenan Lewis and veteran Champ Bailey.
