Milton Mack played for the New Orleans Saints from 1987-1991 as a member of one of the best defenses in the NFL.

Drafted in the 5th round out of Alcorn State, the 5’11, 195 pound cornerback joined the franchise at the right time. After never making the postseason during the first 20 years of existence, the Saints went on to make 3 playoff appearances during Mack’s tenure.

While Mack wasn’t a starter, he spent most of his time in nickle packages, occasionally blitzing opponents. In 5 seasons with the Saints, Mack picked up two sacks and picked off two passes.

After the ’91 season, Mack signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers who instantly made him a starter. In two years with the Bucs, Mack picked off 4 passes, returning 1 for a score, and started every game at cornerback in ’92.

Mack dealt with injuries the following season, his last in Tampa. In 1994, Mack signed with the Detroit Lions, playing in all 16 games and starting 3. He also played in the Lions postseason loss to the rival Packers.

He finished his NFL career with 2 sacks, 12 interceptions, and 45 tackles.
