Saints selected Nebraska CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste with the No. 58 overall pick in the NFL draft.
Jean-Baptiste (6-foot-2 3/8, 218) made 19 starts for the Huskers, finishing his career with seven interceptions and 22 pass breakups. He was a second-team All-Big Ten pick as a senior. Though Jean-Baptiste has limited speed (4.61), he's plenty athletic with a 41 1/2-inch vertical and freakish 10-foot-8 broad jump. Jean-Baptiste needs to play with more physicality, but could develop into a Brandon Browner-like press corner. One concern for Jean-Baptiste's long-term upside is his age, as he's already 24. On the field, he's drawn Nnamdi Asomugha comparisons from NFL scouts. Jean-Baptiste probably won't play a ton as a rookie, but he'll get to learn from one of the all-time greats in LCB Champ Bailey.

Scouts Inc.'s Steve Muench identified Nebraska CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste as a "late riser" and suggested he could go to Seattle with the No. 32 pick.

Obviously SJP would be a perfect scheme fit for the Seahawks. NFL.com's Gil Brandt wrote over the winter that Jean-Baptiste "looks like a clone of [Seahawks' corner] Richard Sherman" and called Jean-Baptiste's size (6-foot-2 3/8, 215) "rare." Muench's Scouts Inc. colleague Kevin Weidl commented in the video below about Jean-Baptiste's rise in stock being thanks to the NFL's increased interest in tall corners.

When asked to make one bold prediction, NFL Network's Mike Mayock suggested Nebraska CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste could be a first-round pick.

"He’s what today’s NFL is all about. He’s too long [6-3 and 213] and moves too well for this not to happen," Mayock told Peter King. We would be stunned by this. Sure, SJB has size, but he only pressed around 34 percent of the time last season and lacked a physical attitude when doing so. Teams are hoping to mimic the Seahawks defense, but we do not view Jean-Baptiste close to a first-round talent.

Fox Sports1's Alex Marvez reports that interested NFL teams have spoke to Nebraska CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste about "potentially playing safety."

"Nebraska CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste says interested teams spoke with him about potentially playing safety but will give him shot at CB first," Marvez tweeted. At 6-foot-2 3/8 and 215 pounds, Jean-Baptiste has rare size at the corner position. The lengthy corner, could perhaps be used in a versatile role in today's NFL. With safeties doing more work in coverage, it could play to his advantage to make the switch. Jean-Baptiste's length,strength and ability to play on an island could definitely add value to his stock as we move closer to the draft.

Scout Inc.'s Kevin Weidl sees Nebraska CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste as firmly on the Day 2 line because of the NFL's increased interest in tall corners.

"Jean-Baptiste has some tightness, which can be exposed in off-man coverage and he is far from a burner in terms of top-end speed," Weidl wrote. "However, when his technique is sound, his ability to utilize his length and strength and effectively use his hands to reroute can quickly become a neutralizer against quicker and faster receivers on an island." Weidl certainly isn't alone in being drawn to the Cornhuskers' length, as NFL.com's Gil Brandt wrote over the winter that Jean-Baptiste "looks like a clone of [Seahawks' corner] Richard Sherman" and called Jean-Baptiste's size (6-foot-2 3/8, 215) "rare."

Nebraska CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste was listed as one of Todd McShay's most impressive defensive players during Senior Bowl week.

Utah corner Keith McGill, Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald, Wisconsin linebacker Chris Borland, and Auburn defensive end Dee Ford were also included in that list. Jean-Baptiste has everything the NFL looks for in terms of frame and length, but he does not get physical with receivers at this point in his development. An NFL team could change that, however.

Nebraska CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste is the "kind of long, rangy defender that NFL scouts are coveting in the wake of the Seattle Seahawks' success this season," according to NFL.com's Bucky Brooks.

Jean-Baptiste's size (6-foot-2 3/8, 215 pounds) has drawn plenty of attention from scouts since the season ended and his collegiate eligibility exhausted. "He displays exceptional ball skills and awareness for a man of his size," Brooks wrote. "Now, some of that is to be expected based on his experience as a receiver -- Jean-Baptiste played wide receiver for nearly two seasons at Nebraska before moving to cornerback. He naturally plucked the ball in drills and showed excellent awareness defending receivers on deep balls. With Jean-Baptiste possessing the size and movement skills to snuff out elite receivers in press coverage, the buzz is building for Jean-Baptiste to enter the conversation as a top cornerback prospect."

NFL.com's Gil Brandt said Nebraska CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste "looks like a clone of [Seahawks' corner] Richard Sherman."

Brandt called Jean-Baptiste's size (6-foot-2 3/8, 215) "rare." The converted wide receiver could draw interest from the Seahawks, according to Brandt. "Has very long arms (78 3/8 wingspan) and is a willing tackler," Brandt wrote. "Looks fast in coverage and has quickness. If he looks like he can cover in man drills this week, he might move up into my top 100. Smart player who entered 2013 with his degree already in hand."

Nebraska CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste plans on attending the Senior Bowl.

Jean-Baptiste is a pure press corner thanks to his length, but offers some athleticism to trail in a straight-line behind downfield receivers. He also has ball skills to make plays in the air.
