Saints Nation: Saints trade up to 5th round, tab SMU Punter Thomas Morstead

In the most surprising move by the Saints in this draft, they traded up to the 5th round to select SMU Punter Thomas Morstead. The Saints gave up their 7th round pick this year and a 5th round pick in 2010. This concludes the draft for the Saints, barring any other trades. This means Glenn Pakulak's job is anything but safe and he'll have to outperform a guy Sean Payton calls "the strongest leg in college football last year". Very surprising move to say the least.
