The New Orleans Saints selected wide receiver Nick Toon in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft.
Toon is smooth as silk as a route runner with sharp instincts and reliable hands.

I feel like the Saints are stacked fairly evenly at most positions...

The New Orleans Saints entered the 2012 NFL draft with little need for immediate starters on either offense or defense, however, the want was there for the Saints to shore up several spots on both sides of the ball with much needed depth. Tight end, defensive tackle, and cornerback were the three positions that required the most depth while every position along the offensive line...
