Saints select Oklahoma WR Kenny Stills Jr. in the 5th round of the NFL draft

The New Orleans Saints have selected Oklahoma's Kenny Stills Jr. with their fifth round pick in the NFL draft.

The 6-foot, 194-pound Stills was New Orleans' first pick on Saturday because the club dealt its fourth-round pick as part of a trade with Miami in order to select Georgia defensive tackle John Jenkins with the 82nd overall pick Friday night.

Stills, the son of former NFL safety Kenny Stills, had a 40-yard dash time of 4.38 at the NFL combine. His uncle, Gary Stills, also played in the NFL, at linebacker.

Last season, Stills was named All-Big 12 after making 82 receptions for 959 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Stills joins New Orleans' first-round pick, Texas safety Kenny Vaccaro and its other third-rounder, offensive tackle Terron Armstead of Arkansas-Pine Bluff.
