The New Orleans Saints selected Oklahoma receiver Kenny Stills in the fifth round with the 144th overall pick.

Stills, 6 feet and 194 pounds, caught 82 passes for 964 yards and 11 touchdowns last season. He was a second-team All-Big 12 selection.
Stills ran the 40-yard dash in 4.38 seconds at the NFL Scouting Combine.
The selection of Stills selection comes after the Saints picked Texas safety Kenny Vaccaro in the first round on Thursday, then Arkansas Pine Bluff offensive tackle Terron Armstead and Georgia defensive tackle John Jenkins in the third round on Friday.

Stills is the son of former Green Bay Packers safety Ken Stills.

OVERVIEW
Stills was a highly sought after four-star recruit. As a high school senior, he had 45 receptions for 914 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2009. Stills is the all-time leader in receiving yards in San Diego. He was named 2009 CIF first-team wide receiver. Kenny’s father, also named Kenny, played safety for the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings. Stills’ uncle, Gary Stills, played for the Kansas City Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens.


Stills had an instant impact for the Sooners, as he started every game in 2010 as a true freshman, and set Oklahoma freshman records for receptions and receiving yardage. Stills caught 61 passes for 786 yards and five touchdowns. In 2011, Stills once again caught 61 passes, but this time totaled 849 yards and eight touchdowns. He was named to the Coaches second-team All-Big 12. As a junior, Stills caught 82 passes for 964 yards and 11 touchdowns. He was once again named second-team All-Big 12.

ANALYSIS

STRENGTHS Good athlete. Good first step off of the line of scrimmage well and has the speed to get behind cornerbacks and the quickness to create separation out of his breaks. Tracks the deep ball very well. Good hands. Flexible, and can make the adjustment to reel in off-target throws. Shows body control and the ability to catch the football at the high point.

WEAKNESSES Lacks great size for the position. Doesn't appear to have elite speed. Not overly physical. Bigger, physical corners will give him issues, especially at the line. Concentration lapses, will drop easy passes. Maturity will be in question due to off-the-field incidents.
NFL COMPARISON Andre Roberts

BOTTOM LINE While Stills isn't the biggest or the fastest, he has a knack for finding ways to get open. He has the ability to track the football, and make some extremely difficult catches. Stills will likely be selected around the third round.

Kenny Stills Draft Profile

METAIRIE, La. — Little did Kenny Stills realize it, but one summer more than four years ago, he caught passes from his future quarterback during a summer workout in San Diego.

The Saints took Stills in the fifth round, bringing the youngster’s story full circle.

Stills said Saturday he was one of several high school players in San Diego who were invited to catch passes from Drew Brees when the quarterback was still with the Chargers.

And now he’s set to catch passes from him once again.

“I can remember hearing the ball whistle coming out of his hands to my hands and just kind of smacking me in the hands,” Stills said. “I expect and have seen such great things from Drew Brees. I’m excited to be around him and learn as much as I can and get open for him.”

Quietly, the Saints’ receiving corps is getting a makeover.

Umm, yeah. There's some places in New Orleans he'll be right at home.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.....

Re: New Orleans Saints pick Oklahoma receiver Kenny Stills in the fifth round

After the first couple of images I saw, I just x'd it out.



I don't dislike the pick at all... just thought there were better receivers on the board. Figured we would take a receiver somewhere.

I'm pumped that the dude has no injury history.

Not a typical mid rd WR pick for us.

For those who wanted Swope? Check out his 6 (SIX) diagnosed concussions.

Re: New Orleans Saints pick Oklahoma receiver Kenny Stills in the fifth round

Stills looks smooth on the field... like everything comes natural and he's not trying hard. I just wanted a guy that could help with with YAC and create after the catch... I don't think he's that type of receiver. Solid pick nonetheless... happy we got a receiver.

He reminds me a little of Vincent Brown in San Diego and Kyle Williams in San Fran.
