ROUND 8+: Danny Abramowicz
The only other player who could possibly take the mantle of best late-round pick for the Saints from Marques Colston is Danny Abramowicz, who was selected with the 420th pick in the 17th round in 1967.
All he did was catch 309 passes for 4,875 yards and 37 touchdowns for New Orleans in seven seasons. He’s still fifth on the all-time catch list in franchise history, fourth in receiving yards and seventh in touchdowns.
In the five years Abramowicz played in New Orleans, only four players in professional football had more receiving yards.
He was an All-Pro in 1969, the same season he led the NFL with 73 catches.
