Post-Draft Outlook:BEST PICK: The Saints thought so much of Ohio State cornerback Malcolm Jenkins that they resisted the urge to drop down in the first round. The versatile Jenkins is expected to help solidify a shaky pass defense that has allowed 67 pass plays of 25 yards or longer over the last two seasons. A closer look at the Saints' picks: Round 1/14 -- Malcolm Jenkins, CB, 6-0, 204, Ohio State...The Saints could have traded down to get additional picks, but they didn't want to take a chance on another team swooping in and grabbing him. Jenkins is a versatile athlete who also played some free safety for Ohio State, although the Saints will initially work him into the mix at cornerback. - by The Sports Xchange
