This article is the second in a four-article series which will profile each of the picks in the New Orleans Saints 2009 draft class.

 While the Saints were scouting Aaron Curry, it was possible that they might have discovered two of his Wake Forest teammates, Chip Vaughn and Stanley Arnoux.

While it's unusual for an NFL team to take two players from one school, it's even more unusual for one team to draft two defensive players from one school in the same round of the draft.

That's exactly what happened when the Saints drafted safety Chip Vaughn and linebacker Stanley Arnoux in the fourth round of the 2009 NFL Draft.

Arnoux was the 118th overall pick in the draft.

Many scouts had Arnoux rated as a possible seventh round pick and a few think that the Saints may have drafted the 6'1", 240 pound linebacker a bit early.

Arnoux was born on Sep. 9, 1986 in Sunrise, Fla. In the NFL combine, he ran the fastest 40 yard dash of any linebacker with a finishing time of 4.61 seconds.

Unfortunately, Saints fans will probably not get to see Arnoux on the field in a helmet and pads.

He is expected to miss the entire 2009-10 season after tearing his left Achilles tendon in his first practice at a Saints rookie mini-camp.

In his four year career with the Demon Deacons, Arnoux recorded 251 tackles, five sacks, six passes defended, and four interceptions.
