METAIRIE-  The New Orleans Saints have signed third-round draft pick John Jenkins to a four-year contract.

That's according to general manager Mickey Loomis.

The 6-foot-3, 359-pound Jenkins, a defensive tackle out of Georgia, was the second of two third-round picks by New Orleans.

He signed his deal on Friday, the same day as the Saints' first rookie camp practice.

Jenkins was the last of five Saints draft choices to sign his contract. First-round pick Kenny Vaccaro signed his Thursday, as did third-round pick Terron Armstead, fifth-round pick Kenny Stills and sixth-rounder Rufus Johnson.
