After a wait of 138 picks, the New Orleans Saints selected two defensive players in the seventh round Saturday to complete a draft that seemed to address the team's most pressing needs and that received widespread acclaim from analysts.

And although the players chosen with the 226th and 243rd selections often face a tough road, the newest Saints made it clear that in at least one respect -- that of character -- Saints executives are serious when they insist that a man's attitude and approach to life matter to them.

"I think the draft is always a real positive and uplifting experience for every team, and there's an expectation that we have for these guys," General Manager Mickey Loomis said. "Sometimes it's fulfilled sooner. Sometimes it's fulfilled later, and obviously sometimes it's never fulfilled. At this point, we have high hopes and expectations for all these guys.

"I'm excited about the character level of this group, what we know about them so far, how they've reacted to being drafted by the New Orleans Saints. There's a general enthusiasm and passion to come to New Orleans that maybe you don't always feel at least in past years. It's been exciting. It's been good."
