Matt Tennant Drafted By Saints in Fifth Round of 2010 NFL Draft

The New Orleans Saints moved into the fifth round of the draft, trading their 2011 fourth round pick to the Jaguars to jump up and grab C Matt Tennant in this year's NFL Draft. Tennant was selected 158th first overall in the draft. Congratulations to Tennant.

Here is Tennant's reaction:

"I knew that they were interested. We had a meeting at the combine. But yeah, it was a surprise. Anybody taking me was a surprise. It’s odd hearing your name called. I didn’t know what was going to happen and I was just fortunate that it was."

Tennant started 41 straight games for the Eagles, giving up just one sack in his final 27 games. Tennant was an All-ACC second team selection in his senior year and a finalist for the Rimington Trophy, given to the top center in college football. 

Here's the reaction from the SB Nation New Orleans Saints blog Canal Street Chronicles.

Go Eagles!
