The New Orleans Saints focused on defense with their second round pick (58th overall), selecting cornerback Stanley-Jean Baptiste out of Nebraska.

Baptiste has only played cornerback for two years, converting from wide receiver. He assimilated quickly to defense, using his large frame to his benefit. At 6’3, 220 pounds, Baptiste has tremendous body control. Having played wide receiver to begin his collegiate career, he often jumped routes, reading opposing offenses.

Last season, he reeled in 4 interceptions and 12 pass breakups for the Cornhuskers. Baptiste sports a reputation of being extremely physical, something that Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan will enjoy. He’s still developing as a corner with a high ceiling.

Although he’s from Miami, Florida, with a name like Stanley Jean-Baptiste, he already sounds like a New Orleanian. Here is a Jean-Baptiste highlight reel from his final season at Nebraska.
