Saints sign Jenkins, wrap up draft class


There’s not a trophy for getting all your draft picks signed quickly.

In fact, other than a team’s negotiator being able to go on vacation sooner, there’s not much motivation at all.

But the Saints joined the Lions in signing their entire draft class, when they inked third-round defensive tackle John Jenkins to a four-year deal.

The Saints signed first-round safety Kenny Vaccaro and their other three picks yesterday.

The 6-foot-3, 359-pound Jenkins could work his way into an early role at nose tackle, as the Saints transition to a 3-4 defense.
