5. Danny Abramowicz (4,875)
Saints WR from 1967-1973
Back when there were more than just seven rounds in the NFL Draft, the Saints spent a 17th-round pick on Danny Abramowicz out of Xavier. Abramowicz wore many different hats during his time in the league (seven of which were spent in New Orleans) and was always a solid contributor for the black and gold.
The 1969 season was Abramowicz’s best in New Orleans, as he went over the 1,000-yard mark for the first time in his career with 1,015 yards and seven touchdowns. The efforts earned him the only Pro Bowl nod of his NFL tenure.
While he never hit the 1,000-yard mark again, the Xavier product was always a force in the offense and that’s proven with him sitting fifth all-time in receiving yards for the organization.
Abramowicz didn’t spend the entirety of his career in New Orleans, joining the 49ers during the 1973 season where he also spent the 1974 season. He wasn’t as good during that final year of his career but Saints fans will always appreciate Danny Abramowicz.
