Jean-Baptiste, a cornerback taken with the No. 58 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, will add immediate depth to coordinator Rob Ryan's defense, which only ranked behind the Seahawks in total passing yards allowed last season.
With a 6-foot-3 frame and impressive vertical ability, Ryan will be looking to use Jean-Baptiste's size to take on a division chock-full of tall wide receivers. Jean-Baptiste had the best vertical jump (41.5 inches) among cornerbacks at the NFL Scouting Combine in February.
The Saints significantly shored up their secondary in the offseason by signing perennial Pro Bowl safety Jairus Byrd. The team also added veteran Champ Bailey to their personnel to play alongside returning starter Keenan Lewis.
