The last of the Saints’ six 2014 draft picks has been added to the club’s practice squad.

Rookie offensive tackle Tavon Rooks, a sixth-round selection from Kansas State, was among 10 players signed to the Saints’ practice roster on Monday, the club said.

Rooks (6-5, 300) appeared in all four of the Saints’ preseason games as a reserve. He was waived on Saturday. His re-signing means the club’s entire draft class has a spot with the team entering the regular season.

The other players signed to the Saints’ practice squad were wide receiver Brandon Coleman, inside linebacker Todd Davis, cornerback Terrence Frederick, tight end Nic Jacobs, wide receiver Seantavius Jones, offensive guard Antoine McClain, nose tackle Lawrence Virgil, cornerback Trevin Wade and safety Pierre Warren.
