Rumors were that the Saints would make a trade Friday, and it wasn't as big of a move as some thought, but the Saints trade with Cleveland to draft Zack Baun, the Wisconsin edge rusher.

Baun is undersized, with 4.6 speed. He had 12.5 sacks last season, second in the Big Ten.

The edge rusher was penciled in as a second round pick, but falls to New Orleans. But there are red, or pink, flags. Baun had a diluted drug sample at the combine. It's not a failed test, but is a red flag. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Baun said his fail was due to drinking too much water in attempt to gain weight. He is generally considered undersized at 6-foot-2, 238 pounds.

In the trade, New Orelans sent their third round pick, 88th overall, and next year's third round pick for the 74th pick and a seventh round selection this year.
