METAIRIE, La. - The New Orleans Saints selected Oklahoma wide receiver Kenny Stills Jr. in the fifth round and defensive end Rufus Johnson with their sixth-round pick in the NFL draft.

The 6-foot, 194-pound Stills was New Orleans' first pick on Saturday because the club dealt its fourth-round pick as part of a trade with Miami in order to select Georgia defensive tackle John Jenkins with the 82nd overall pick Friday night.

Stills, the son of former NFL safety Kenny Stills, had a 40-yard dash time of 4.38 at the NFL combine. His uncle, Gary Stills, also played in the NFL, at linebacker.

Last season, Stills was named All-Big 12 after making 82 receptions for 959 yards and 11 touchdowns.

The 6-foot-5, 272-pound Johnson played at Division II Tarleton State in Texas. Last season, he had 50 tackles, including 17.5 tackles for losses, 10 of them sacks. He was named the Lone Star Conference defensive lineman of the year.

Stills and Johnson join the Saints' first-round pick, Texas safety Kenny Vaccaro and their two third-round choices, offensive tackle Terron Armstead of Arkansas-Pine Bluff and defensive tackle John Jenkins of Georgia.
