New Orleans Saints draft history: Review of 2015 selections

Andrus Peat & P.J. Williams joined Saints roster in 2015 NFL Draft


Andrus Peat and P.J. Williams are the only members of the 2015 draft class that still remain on the New Orleans Saints roster. In 2020, Peat earned his third consecutive Pro Bowl nod. He started in his 75th career game for an offense that rushed for over 200 yards for the second consecutive week at Atlanta on Dec. 6 and notched 13 starts in the campaign but was forced to miss three regular-season games due to injury. In 2021, Williams played in 16 games, recording 36 tackles, two sacks, three interceptions and five passes defensed, posting his most productive season since 2018.
