With three picks in the second day of the NFL Draft, New Orleans had plenty of opportunities to fill some needs, and the Saints continued to work on their defense. In the second round, the Saints took linebacker Pete Werner with the 60th pick.

The Ohio State linebacker had a draft grade in the third and fourth rounds, but gained momentum in the days leading up to the draft, some even calling him a late first round select. Werner fits the bill, standing at 6-feet-3-inches tall, 238 lbs. He ran a 4.58 40-yard-dash. He finished his career with 185 tackles and 13 pass breakups in 47 career games.

In the third round, New Orleans traded their two compensatory picks to move up to no. 76 where New Orleans added Stanford cornerback Paulson Adebo. This is the first value pick for New Orleans. Adebo had second round draft grades by some. Adebo was a two-time All-Pac-12 selection. Cornerback was a very important need after letting Janoris Jenkins go this off-season.
