Saints add safety, trade up for running back in NFL draft

METAIRIE, La. (AP) The New Orleans Saints added a ball-hawking safety and made a trade to take a running back during the second day of the NFL draft.

The Saints have used their second-round pick on Utah safety Marcus Williams, who has intercepted 10 passes over his last two seasons. New Orleans has also traded a 2018 second-round pick and this year's seventh rounder to San Francisco so they could draft Tennessee running back Alvin Kamara early in the third round.

The trade increased to three the number of Saints third-round picks, and two had yet to be used at the time they chose Kamara.
