The Saints second round pick at 62nd overall is their only pick in the first four rounds of this month’s draft. Ferguson is projected to be a second round pick, but it’s unknown if he would be available when the Saints select.

Last year, the Saints traded up in the first round to take defensive end Marcus Davenport.
