METAIRIE, La. – 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.
