Delvin Breaux

Delvin Breaux’s first professional season was nothing short of spectacular. Breaux didn’t get off the best of starts, as he was the brunt of a joke after a Week 3 debacle against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers where he could not find the ball. However, that didn’t get Breaux down. In fact, it only helped him.

Breaux finished 2015 as Pro Football Focus’ 11th highest rated corner, which is incredible given how bad the Saints secondary was after tons of Brandon Browner faux-pas. Breaux’s grade of +11.8 was second highest on the defense. Breaux was targeted a total of 82 times, and opposing receivers were credited with 40 receptions for 565 yards. He finished with 3 interceptions on the season, all of which were extremely memorable.

Aside his incredible journey to the NFL, his humble attitude and passionate heart has easily made Breaux a fan favorite in the Crescent City.
