Burrough, Naeole didn't work out, at least for Saints

MikeTriplett / New Orleans Times-Picayune

The Saints have drafted two players with the No. 10 pick during franchise history, and both of them went on to long and productive NFL careers -- for other teams.

Receiver Ken Burrough, drafted in 1970, played just one season in New Orleans before being traded to Houston, where he excelled the next 11 seasons.

Guard Chris Naeole, the 10th pick in 1997, was a solid starter for most of his five seasons in New Orleans, but he never escaped the stigma of being drafted too high until he left for Jacksonville as a free agent in 2002.

Naeole currently is out of a job after being released by the Jaguars last month. The 33-year-old started 87 games the past six seasons before tearing a quadriceps tendon last Novemeber, coincidentally, at the Superdome. Full Story – Picayune
