 METAIRIE, La. (AP) - The New Orleans Saints have selected Terron Armstead, an offensive tackle out of Arkansas-Pine Bluff, with their third-round pick in the NFL draft.
The 6-foot-5, 306-pound lineman, picked 75th overall, represents New Orleans' lone pick on Friday night. The Saints were docked their second-round selection as part of their punishment stemming from the NFL's 2012 bounty findings.
Armstead gives the Saints depth at offensive tackle following the departure of former starting left tackle Jermon Bushrod to Chicago in free agency. Charles Brown, a 2010 second-round pick out of Southern California, could be Bushrod's successor at that spot. The pick of Armstead was announced by former Saints special teams leader Steve Gleason, who has ALS.
The Saints took Texas safety Kenny Vaccaro with their first-round pick, 15th overall, on Thursday night.
