CHICAGO (WVUE) -

The Saints will potentially select three new players tonight when the NFL Draft resumes tonight.

The Black and Gold hold three picks. In the second round they will select 12th (44th over all) and in the third they will pick 11th and 14th (75th and 78th overall). The 78th overall pick came from the Miami Dolphins as part of a trade that brought Linebacker Danelle Ellerbe to New Orleans and sent young wide receiver Kenny Still to Miami.

The Saints selected twice Thursday night in the NFL Draft's first round.

With the 13th overall pick , the New Orleans Saints select Andrus Peat, offensive tackle out of Stanford. Peat, a 6'7" 316 lb. lineman, was voted second-team All American by the Associated Press and an Outland Trophy semifinalist in 2014. He started the final 27 games of his career at Stanford.

With the 31st overall pick, the New Orleans Saints select Stephone Anthony, an inside linebacker from Clemson. The 6'3", 243 lbs. linebacker was invited to the 2015 Senior Bowl in 2015 and was first-team ALL-ACC in 2014. He was also a Butkus Award semi-finalist.

The 31st pick came to the Saints from the Seattle Seahawks in a trade that also brought in Center Max Unger and sent Tight End Jimmy Graham to Seattle.

Fox 8 will have the latest on tonight's draft during Fox 8 News at 9 and 10.
