The Saints chose DL Sheldon Rankins with the 12th pick in the NFL Draft. Rankins should fit well as the 3-4 DE across from Cameron Jordan and significantly strengthen the New Orleans front. He'll make for an interesting option in IDP rookie drafts.

Saints DT Sheldon Rankins is active for tonight's game against the Cowboys. It will mark his 1st game back since suffering a torn Achilles' tendon in last year's playoff victory over the Eagles. We'll see how much playing time Rankins is ready for. He remained limited in practice this week.

According to multiple reports, Saints rookie DT Sheldon Rankins left the practice field on a cart Monday morning. We'll keep an eye out for updates on the 12th overall pick. Losing him would deal a potentially big blow to a team defense that stunk last year but has some hope for at least a bit of big-play upside in 2016.

Update: NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Rankins is expected to hit IR with a broken fibula.
