It's a trade! With their third selection in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft, the New Orleans Saints look to upgrade their defense by selecting Damian Swann.

The New Orleans Saints have selected cornerback Damian Swann out of Georgia with their 187th overall pick in the 6th round of the 2015 NFL Draft.

The Saints traded their sixth round pick (187) and a sixth rounder in 2016 in order to select Swann.  Swann measures in at 6'0" and 189lbs.  The Saints must have seen something they really like in Swann to move up like this.  Let's hope this move pays dividends.
