Best New Orleans Saints Draft Choices From FBS Schools: Utah
Who is the best player the New Orleans Saints ever drafted from the Utah Utes?
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, UNLV, 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 USC.
Today, we spotlight the best player the Saints ever drafted from Utah.
Our pick is going to be Henry Lusk, a tight end, who played one season for the Saints, in 1996.
And there’s a good reason Lusk is the pick; it’s because he’s actually the only player that the Saints ever drafted out of Utah.
The Saints selected Lusk in the 7th round of the 1996 NFL Draft.
In his lone season with the Saints, Lusk caught 27 passes for 210 yards.
In 1997, Lusk moved on to the Miami Dolphins, where he played in 3 games, without a reception.
In one season with the Saints, Lusk appeared in 16 games, including 3 starts, accumulating 27 catches for 210 yards.
In two seasons in the NFL, Lusk appeared in 19 games, including 4 starts, compiling 27 catches for 210 yards.
