New Orleans Saints select California RB Daniel Lasco in the seventh round of the 2016 NFL Draft

Posted Apr 30, 2016

New Orleans Saints select California RB Daniel Lasco with the 237th pick in the 2016 NFL Draft

NFL.com review of California RB Daniel Lasco (6-0, 209 LBs):

Coming off of a team MVP and honorable mention All-Pac-12 campaign in 2014 (1,115 rush yards, 12 touchdowns; 33-356 receiving), Lasco looked for a big senior year to finish off his career. Unfortunately, he couldn't stay healthy in 2015, playing in nine games due to hip and ankle injuries (three starts; 65-331 rushing, three TD; 4-24 receiving). Scouts already wondered if Lasco would stay healthy with a 6-1, 205-pound build, but he's not contact-shy. In fact, he led the team with 12 special teams tackles as a true freshman in addition to carrying the ball six times for 109 and a score.
