CHICAGO (WVUE) - The Saints traded back into the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft to select a defensive tackle out of Canada.
David Onyemata, a DT from the University of Manitoba, was taken by the Saints with the 120th overall pick. Onyemata is a big, powerful interior lineman measuring in at 6'4" and weighing 300 lbs. NFL analysts say he is a raw prospect that needs more coaching, but could become an NFL starter.
The Saints traded their fifth-round pick this year (No. 152) and next year's fifth-round pick to select Onyemata.
