With two picks on the final day of the NFL draft, the Saints added depth on both sides of the line of scrimmage when they chose a speedy wide receiver and a defensive end who could wind up at outside linebacker.
The Saints, who didn't have a fourth-round pick after they traded it Friday night in a deal that helped them land Georgia defensive tackle John Jenkins, grabbed Oklahoma wide receiver Kenny Stills Jr. in the fifth round and then took Tarleton State defensive end Rufus Johnson in the sixth.
The selection of those two players wrapped up the 2013 draft for the Saints, who did not have a pick in the seventh round after sending it to the Seattle Seahawks last summer to acquire middle linebacker Barrett Ruud.
Stills, a 6-foot, 194-pounder, was an extremely productive wide receiver in his three seasons at Oklahoma.
A five-star recruit by Scout.com coming out of high school in California, he caught 204 passes for 2,594 yards and had 24 TDs for the Sooners in starting all 38 games he played in before giving up his final year of eligibility and declared for the draft in January.
Stills' father and uncle both played in the NFL.
His dad, Kenny Stills Sr., won a starting job as a rookie safety with the Green Bay Packers in 1985 and went on to play six seasons in the league. Uncle Gary Stills, a linebacker, was a third-round draft pick in 1999 and played 10 seasons for three different teams.
Johnson, a 6-5, 270-pounder, was a second-team All-America selection as a senior at Tarleton State, which is located near Fort Worth, Texas. A former junior college player, he had 10 sacks last year and 17.5 tackles behind the line.
Johnson played in a 4-3 scheme at Tarleton State, but said the Saints project him as an outside linebacker in their new 3-4 alignment because of his 4.69 speed in the 40-yard dash.
