Saints to select No. 14 in NFL Draft

Posted by Jeff Duncan, The Times-Picayune December 29, 2008 10:01AM

The NFL has not released the official order for the 2009 NFL Draft, but the Saints will pick No. 14 in the April 26-27 event.

The Saints finished at 8-8, tied with Denver, Houston, San Diego and Washington but earned the middle spot of the five .500 teams because of the strength-of-schedule tie-breaker.

The Saints have picks in the first, third, fourth and seventh rounds, but will likely surrender their third-round pick to the Jets in exchange for the Jet’s fourth-round pick because of terms of the trade for Jon Vilma. That would leave the Saints with a first-rounder, two fourths and a seventh-rounder in the draft.

The league will not announce the entire draft order until Tuesday.
