Saints sign second-rounder Stanley Jean-Baptiste

Senior Bowl Getty Images

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.

    Saints had a solid draft with Cooks, Jean-Baptiste, and Powell.

    All 3 should have an impact this year.

    You do realize that DS just “ended” his football career with the Saints, that he played for other teams as well, right?

    Good size and speed at CB for Jean-Baptiste, while the Panthers got a 5’9″ guy with blazing 4.63 speed.

    Good thing Gettleman has a plan.

    Since Drew might be retired when his rookie deal ends they may have the cash to keep him. What a change that would be.

    I am interested to see what happens in the NFC South this year. It seems like every team in that division has about an equal shot of winning 11 games or winning 6, so it may be the most wide-open division in the league this season.

    I don’t think this guy is ever going to be a starting cornerback. He is so raw and stiff. Maybe he turns out to be a great strong safety like Kam Chancellor, but that is Not Rob Ryan’s plan in New Orleans’ blitz heavy scheme.

    There is a reason Seattle and Jacksonville didn’t want him. Eric Pinkins will be much better under the direction of Rocky Seto and Kris Richard.

    Bank on it!
