Found July 04, 2012 on The Saints Nation:
The Saints have locked up 6th round pick guard Andrew Tiller to a 4 year deal yesterday, meaning they have now signed every draft pick with the exception of 4th round pick, WR Nick Toon. Expect Toon's signing to be announced in the coming week I would expect.

Tiller is 6'5", 335lbs, so he's an absolute beast in size and should greatly help depth behind Jahri Evans and Ben Grubbs. I full expect him to make the 53 man roster this season.
