ROUND 6: Fred McAfee
Fred McAfee won’t go down as the Saints’ best running back ever, but he may just go down as one of the team’s most recognizable characters.
He was taken with the 154th pick of the 1991 draft out of Mississippi College and initially played for only three full seasons with New Orleans. Eventually, though, he returned to the franchise and finished his final seven seasons with the Saints.
It was in that time that he made his biggest impact, earning a 2002 Pro Bowl berth thanks mostly to a key role on special teams.
He’s still with the franchise as the director of player development, working with young players transitioning into the NFL.
Runner-up: Floyd Turner
