Saints Rack Up In Draft In Last Five Years
What's the secret to the recent success of the New Orleans Saints? According to a recent survey by CSNBayArea.com, only one team ranks ahead of the Saints, when it comes to success in the NFL Draft, over the last five years. Mike Triplett, of the Times-Picayune, has the story, below.
Head coach Sean Payton of the New Orleans Saints watches a play during the game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the Louisiana Superdome on January 2, 2011 in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Buccaneers defeated the Saints 23-13.
Obviously, they can point to the additions of Coach Sean Payton and free-agent quarterback Drew Brees for raising them to new heights. More subtly, the Saints also have built that championship foundation through the draft.
