Number Three: Deonte Harris
In just two years, Deonte Harris has become one of the league’s top return specialists with his ability to flip the field with speed and elusiveness. Fans, but most importantly Sean Payton, quickly noticed Harris’ ability and slowly began to implement the return man into the Saints offense.
The Saints have begun to use Harris’ elite playmaking ability in order to create the big plays that have escaped this offense over the last two seasons.
The All-Pro talent has shown great ability to catch the ball and also create yards after the catch. During the 2020 season, Harris caught 186 receiving yards in the regular season with 8 receptions during the postseason, but this may only be a glimpse of what Harris can provide for the Saints.
Although Drew Brees may be retiring this offseason, the Saints offense has more than enough arising talent to be one of the NFL’s best.
