As we approach the 2020 NFL Draft on April 23-25, the New Orleans Saints will have picks in Round 1 (24th overall), Round 3 (88th overall), Round 4 (130th overall), Round 5 (169th overall) and Round 6 (203rd overall). NewOrleansSaints.com takes a look at the history of those overall pick positions and the players they brought into the league.
Over the last 10 drafts, offensive and defensive linemen have been a focus with half of the last 10 selections chosen with the 203rd selection. One of those selections was two-time Super Bowl champion Darius Kilgo who won back-to-back titles with the Denver Broncos in 2015 and New England Patriots in 2016. In four NFL seasons, the Maryland product played in 29 games, recording 16 tackles (11 solo) and a pass defensed.
A few 203rd selections also prolonged their football careers outside of the NFL. De'Angelo Henderson most recently played this spring with the XFL's Houston Roughnecks while Andrew Jackson and Zack Williams joined teams in the Arena Football League.
