Saints Draft

Biggest Draft Busts In The Sean Payton Era

2 of 8

Antonio Pittman, Running Back
2007 Draft, 4th Round, #107 Overall – Ohio State

Pittman was a promising running back out of Ohio State. As fast as he entered, he exited. He would be cut by the Saints on September 1, 2007, and would land on the Rams roster. Pittman would have a tremendous opportunity, as he would start several games in place of injured starter Steven Jackson, but would fail to impress. He would never play for anyone again after he was waived on September 5, 2009.

The only good news for Saints fans? Two things. Pittman was released to make room for Pierre Thomas, and the Saints would pick at #125 to nab guard Carl Nicks. I somewhat remember that these two guys did something for the team.

Some Players The Saints Could Have Had In That Round: OT Doug Free (#122), S Dashon Goldson (#126), FB Leron McClain (#137)
