New Orleans Saints Rookie Spotlight: Stanley Jean-Baptiste

Posted Aug 1, 2014

Saints drafted big cornerback out of Nebraska

Stanley Jean-Baptiste, the New Orleans Saints' second-draft draft pick out of Nebraska, is a 6-foot-3, 218-pound cornerback from Miami. He appeared in 36 career games in college, starting 19 contests. He posted career statistics of 74 tackles with seven interceptions, 22 passes defensed, one sack, four tackles for a loss and a seven-yard reception. As a senior in 2013, he was named second-team All-Big Ten after recording 41 tackles, one sack, four stops for a loss, four interceptions and 12 passes defensed.

Jean-Baptiste is today's Rookie Spotlight.

Can you gauge how you’re working into camp?

“I think it’s coming on a little slow. I’m just trying to pick up all the terminology of the playbook, different name calls, all the checks and just trying to get familiar with playing with some of the guys.”

TicketmasterWhat are you hoping for coming into the scrimmage?

“Just hoping and expecting to get better every day. Not making the same mistakes, and just competing.”

This team is pretty deep at corner and Coach Payton said many players have to make their initial mark on special teams. Do you feel like you’ll have to make an impact on special teams?

“Yes, especially if I want to get a lot of playing time. Special teams will be the first ticket to traveling. It’s one of the things that I’m really focusing on.”

Did you play much special teams in college?

“I played special teams, not too many my senior year. But I always played on one special teams unit, at least.”

Which units are you playing on now?

“I’m on everything.”

Do you feel comfortable with what you know about playing special teams?

“I feel pretty comfortable. Like I said, I’m just trying to figure out the names and who I’ve got to block on certain calls.”
