Best New Orleans Saints Draft Choices From FBS Schools: Tulane
Who is the best player the New Orleans Saints ever drafted from the Tulane Green Wave?
From May 1 until the start of the 2016 NFL season on September 11, we’re going to list the best players that the Saints ever drafted from all 128 FBS schools, as of 2015.
Of course, there are a number of schools, including Air Force, Appalachian St., Arizona, Army, Baylor, Boise St., Bowling Green, Buffalo, Central Florida, Central Michigan, East Carolina, FAU, FIU, Hawaii, ULM, Miami (Ohio), Marshall, Middle Tennessee, Navy, Nevada, New Mexico, New Mexico St., Ohio, Rice, Rutgers, San Jose St., South Alabama, South Florida, Southern Miss, TCU, Temple, Texas St., Toledo, Troy, and UTEP, in which the Saints have never drafted a player.
Earlier, we looked at the best player that the Saints ever drafted out of Texas Tech.
Today, we spotlight the best player the Saints ever drafted from Tulane.
When it comes to deciding who the best player from Tulane ever drafted by the Saints is, the choice is limited to running back Marvin Lewis (1982) and defensive back Treg Songy (1985).
Well, here we have only two guys, who combined to play a grand total of three games in the NFL. So who do we choose?
The pick is going to be Lewis, who at least appeared in an NFL game for the Saints.
Funny thing, is that Songy played in twice as many NFL games than Lewis, but understand it still only adds up to two games.
So, we're going with Lewis, a running back, who the Saints selected in the 6th round of the 1982 NFL Draft.
Lewis played in one game for the Saints in 1982, and never carried the football. But it's still enough to make him the pick.
