Saints Draft Toon in 4th Round

METAIRIE, La. (AP) -- The New Orleans Saints have selected Wisconsin wide receiver Nick Toon in Saturday's fourth round of the NFL draft.

Toon, taken 122nd overall, was the second player drafted by New Orleans, which did not have a pick in the first two rounds.

The 6-foot-2, 215-pound Toon is the son of former New York Jets receiver Al Toon

Last season, the younger Toon led the Badgers in receiving with 64 catches for 926 yards and 10 touchdowns.

He comes to a Saints team that lost one of their top receivers when Robert Meachem left for San Diego in free agency.

Toon joins defensive tackle and third-round selection Akiem Hicks in the Saints' 2012 draft class.
