Top 10 NFL Draft Steals of the last decade

Saints made this list twice!

No.6 Marques Colston

Colston was one of the main factors as to why the Saints were able to win a Super Bowl. He has an NFL record for most receptions from a player in their first two seasons with 168. He has 60 career touchdowns and is closing in on 8,000 total career reception yards. Not bad coming out of the 7th round, #252 overall.

No.4 Jimmy Graham

It’s early in his career, but Graham appears to be unstoppable on the field. He reels in anything within his 35-inch arm length. He’s difficult to take down after the catch, and he has one of the league’s best quarterbacks passing him the ball. It’s hard to see the ceiling on New Orleans’ third round pick, #95 overall. He has 37 touchdowns in his four years thus far, with 3,636 receiving yards.

Two Top-10'ers. Not bad, but considering the career he's had Pierre Thomas could have been in there, but since he was an undrafted free agent, I guess he belongs on a different list with a bunch of other Saints.

I guess Brady didn't make the last decade.
I think he makes the all time list as #1.

We do have an innate sense for drafting well in the later rounds. In the early rounds not so much.

Until this year; Vaccaro, Armstead, and Jenkins all look to be early round wins
