Saints Sign Fourth-Round Pick LB Khairi Fortt

 

The New Orleans Saints announced the signing of fourth-round pick LB Khairi Fortt on Monday.

The Saints are only the second team to have their entire draft class under contract a little over a week since the draft concluded.

Fortt, 22, played two years for Penn State before transferring to California last year. In 2013, he started all nine games for California totaled 64 tackles, 0.5 sack and 3.5 tackles for a loss.

New Orleans also drafted OLB Ronald Powell in the sixth round, so there figures to be plenty of competition at outside linebacker this summer.
