Top 5 New Orleans Saints that played collegiately at LSU
Number Four: Devery Henderson
Devery Henderson was drafted by the New Orleans Saints in the second round of the 2004 NFL Draft and he became one of the best wide receivers in franchise history. Henderson, a Lafayette Louisiana native, spent his entire nine-year NFL career in the Black and Gold.
Henderson was the ultimate model of consistency for the Saints in his career as he never missed more than three games in a season and had some of the most reliable hands for Aaron Brooks and Drew Brees to throw to.
Henderson was oftentimes the number two or three wide receiver on the Saints’ depth chart, but that didn’t stop him from logging some impressive numbers.
Henderson played in 124 games with the Saints and recorded 245 receptions, 4,377 receiving yards, a 17.9 yards per reception average, 174 first downs, and 20 receiving touchdowns.
He also played a pivotal role in helping the Saints win their first and still only Super Bowl in franchise history.
