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. Williams played in 12 games with four starts, recording 14 tackles, two interceptions and four passes defensed, picking off his first pass in his second Saints stint on October 4 at Detroit, when he filled in for an injured Janoris Jenkins and Marshon Lattimore.
