It took a little while, but the Saints have made their first trade of the draft.
New Orleans traded pick 187 in the sixth round and 2016 sixth-round pick to acquire pick 167 from the Washington Redskins, which it used to select cornerback Damian Swann.
A product of Georgia, the 6-foot Swann is described to be at his best in bump-and-run coverage, which fits the same mold as third-round pick P.J. Williams and Brandon Browner, who signed as free agent.
Swann recorded eight interceptions during his career, including four last season. He also had 25 career passes defensed throughout his career.
