Top 5 New Orleans Saints Offensive Linemen Of All-Time
Who are the top 5 offensive linemen in the history of the New Orleans Saints?
1)—WILLIE ROAF—Is there even an argument? The 8th-overall pick in the 1993 NFL Draft, Roaf played in 131 games for the Saints, while being named to the Pro Bowl in six of his nine seasons (1994-2000) with the team. A 2008 inductee into the New Orleans Saints Hall of Fame, Roaf was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2012.
2)—JAHRI EVANS—A member of the 2009 Saints’ Super Bowl winning team, Evans spent 11 seasons with the organization (2006-2016), while being named to the Pro Bowl in 6-consecutive seasons (2009-2014). A 4th round selection in the 2006 NFL Draft, Evans is the best guard in franchise history.
3)—STAN BROCK—The 12th-overall selection in the 1980 NFL Draft, Brock appeared in 186 games over 13 seasons with the Saints, starting 182. Drafted by Dick Nolan, Brock was one of the better players in the Bum Phillips era, before becoming a solid right tackle for some really good Saints teams under Jim Mora.
4)—JIM DOMBROWSKI—The 6th-overall selection in the 1986 NFL Draft, Dombrowski appeared in 151 games over 11 seasons with the Saints, including 137 as a starter. A starter at both guard and tackle over his career, Dombrowski was the first-ever draft choice by the Jim Finks/Jim Mora regime.
5)—JOHN HILL—Surprised? You shouldn’t be. Hill played 10 seasons for the Saints (1975-1984), appearing in 138 games, all at center, including 134 as a starter. He may not be as well known as the other four, or the likes of Kyle Turley or Carl Nicks for that matter, but anyone who followed the Saints closely in the late 70’s/early 80’s knows how good he was.
