New Orleans Saints draft history: Review of 2013 selections

Terron Armstead headlines Saints 2013 draft class


Offensive tackle Terron Armstead was a third-round choice in the New Orleans Saints' 2013 NFL draft and has been a standout performer since he broke into the starting lineup his rookie season. Armstead, a 6-foot-5, 304-pounder out of Arkansas-Pine Bluff, has established himself as one of the league's best offensive linemen and earned his third consecutive Pro Bowl nod in 2020. Armstead participated in 100 percent of snaps in 11 contests including the playoffs, helping pave the way for Saints running back Alvin Kamara, who had a record-setting year in the Black & Gold.
