METAIRIE, La. (AP) - The New Orleans Saints head into the final day of the NFL draft with four picks spread between the fourth and sixth rounds.

General manager Mickey Loomis has said the Saints‘ roster has few holes, allowing the club to focus on selecting their highest-rated players overall, regardless of position.

Still, the Saints enter Saturday’s fourth round with room on the roster for offensive linemen, particular at center following the departure of former starter Brian de la Puente in free agency.

New Orleans had only two picks in the first three rounds, having traded their third-round pick and 27th overall pick to Arizona in order to select receiver Brandin Cooks 20th overall. The Saints drafted cornerback Stanley Jean-Baptiste in the second round.
