The New Orleans Saints have signed defensive tackle John Jenkins to a four year contract.

Jenkins, a former star at the University of Georgia, was the Saints third round pick in this year's NFL Draft.

The Saints sent two fourth-round draft picks to Miami in exchange for the Dolphins' 82nd overall choice in the third round to take Jenkins.

With the signing of Jenkins, all five of the Saints draft picks have been signed.

Thursday the Saints announced the signing of their first round draft pick S Kenny Vaccaro, the first of their two third round picks, T Terron Armstead, their fifth round pick WR Kenny Stills and their sixth round draft pick LB Rufus Johnson to four-year contracts.

The Saints conducted the first of five practices during Rookie Minicamp on Friday and will continue through Sunday.
