Who is the best player the New Orleans Saints ever drafted from the Memphis Tigers?

From May 1 until the start of the 2016 NFL season on September 11, we’re going to list the best players that the Saints ever drafted from all 128 FBS schools, as of 2015.

Of course, there are a number of schools, including Air Force, Appalachian St., Arizona, Army, Baylor, Boise St., Bowling Green, Buffalo, Central Florida, Central Michigan, East Carolina, FAU, FIU, Hawaii, ULM, Marshall, and South Alabama, in which the Saints have never drafted a player.

Yesterday, we looked at the best player the Saints ever drafted from Maryland.

Today, we spotlight the best player the Saints ever drafted from Memphis.

When it comes to selecting the best player the Saints ever drafted from Memphis, the choice is going to be easy, as the franchise has only selected one player from the school, defensive back Reggie Jones (1991).

So, without much thought, the pick is going to be Jones, a cornerback, who played 4 years for the Saints, from 1991-1994.

A native of Memphis, Tennessee, Jones was selected by the Saints in the 5th round of the 1991 NFL Draft.

The 6-foot-1, 202-pound Jones played in 13 games as a rookie, including one as a starter, compiling 41 tackles and 3 interceptions.

The 1992 season saw Jones become the fulltime starter at right-cornerback, where he played in 15 games, all as a starter, totaling 55 tackles and 2 interceptions, including one for a touchdown.

In 1993-1994, his final two years with the Saints, and his final seasons in the NFL, Jones saw action in 13 games, while starting three, accumulating a combined 19 tackles and one interception.

In 4 seasons in the NFL, all with the Saints, Jones appeared in 41 games, including 19 as a starter, compiling 115 tackles and 6 interceptions.
