Top 30 players in New Orleans Saints’ history
Jim Dombrowski was selected in the first round by the New Orleans Saints in the 1986 NFL Draft. He went on to play his entire career of ten years in New Orleans. He played a total of 157 games in those ten years.
Like we talked about with tackle Zach Strief, offensive linemen are some of the most overlooked because there are very few stats associated with the position. The No. 1 thing that an organization can ask out of a lineman is durability.
Dombrowski gave just that. While he ended up not starting in his rookie year in 1986, He seemingly fit right into the starting lineup for the rest of his career. Throughout the ten years, he started a full 16-games in seven of those years.
He added another dimension to the offensive lineman position which was flexibility. Dombrowski moved from the left guard (1986) to the left tackle (1987-1989), and back to left guard (1986-1996). That is why Dombrowski had such an impact.
