- Updated: May 2, 2015
The New Orleans Saints selected Tennessee-Chattanooga defensive end Davis Tull with the first of their two fifth-round picks on Day 3 of the 2015 NFL Draft on Saturday.
Tull, a four-year starter and an All-American in 2014, had 19.5 sacks in his final two seasons.
He joins Washington outside linebacker Hau’oli Kikaha, a second round pick who had 19 sacks last season, as an effort by the Saints to beef up their defense and pass rusher.
