1. Marques Colston (9,759)

Saints WR from 2006-2015

The all-time leader in receiving yards for the Saints is none other than Marques Colston. The top two receiving leaders for New Orleans are both former seventh-round picks and Colston spent all 10 years of his pro career as a member of Who Dat Nation.

Colston immediately stepped onto the scene and made a huge impact for the Saints. He had 1,038 yards and eight touchdowns that year as a rookie and didn’t slow down there.

In Colston’s 10 years with the franchise, six of them resulted in 1,000+ yard seasons and two others saw him go over the 900-yard mark. He had double-digit touchdowns twice with his career-high being 11 trips into the end zone during the 2007 season.

It says a lot about Colston when the worst year of his career saw him go for 45 receptions for 520 yards and four receptions. That’s still a solid season by a receiver.

No one thought Marques Colston would end up as the all-time receiving leader for the New Orleans Saints when the team spent a seventh-round pick on him. It was a lot of fun watching him go from unknown out of Hofstra to the leader in receiving yards for the Saints. It’ll take a long time before someone is able to pass him.
