New Orleans Saints draft history: 2009 draft

Posted May 4, 2014

Taking a look back at the 2009 draft

The New Orleans Saints didn't have many picks in the 2009 draft but they made the most of the ones they had. First-round pick Malcolm Jenkins made an immediate impact on the team at cornerback and on special teams as a rookie before settling in as the team's starting free safety. The Saints traded their next pick for tight end Jeremy Shockey who would become a key member of the team's Super Bowl-winning squad that season.

The most unheralded pick of the Saints' draft, the fifth-round selection of punter Thomas Morstead, may go down as one of the team's late-round picks of all time. Morstead is still with the team and has done a fantastic job on punts and handling kickoffs.
