The Saints have signed rookie DT Al Woods to a four-year contract, the team announced Thursday.

Woods, a fourth-round pick, is the first of the Saints' draft picks to sign a contract.

In PFW's 2010 Draft Preview, PFW personnel analyst Nolan Nawrocki wrote that Woods "could become an effective space eater at the next level if he is able to keep his weight in check and continue refining his technique."
