7. Devery Henderson (4,377)

Saints WR from 2004-2012

While it feels like the Saints never draft LSU players, Devery Henderson is proof that they do sometimes. NOLA spent a second-round pick on Henderson in the 2004 NFL Draft and by year three, he was a legitimate force in the Saints’ offense, tallying 745 yards and five touchdowns while averaging 23.3 yards per catch.

Two years later, Henderson improved on his yards per catch with an average of 24.8 yards per catch. That’s insane!

Henderson’s career-high in receiving yards was in 2009 when he had 804 and his career-high in touchdowns was five, which he did during that 2006 season.

Henderson never went over the 1,000-yard mark but he was a deep threat option for the team. He also spent the entirety of his nine-year career with New Orleans, which meant a lot to the fan base as well.

To this day, he’s seventh all-time in receiving yards for the franchise.
