Summary

Marques Colston was an awesome value pick for the Saints in 2006 when he was drafted in the seventh round of Sean Payton's first draft and immediately started. He has little speed, but is an effective route runner who uses his size well to seal off defenders. In six out of his eight seasons in the NFL, he has had over 1,000 yards receiving. In 2008, he fell short of that lofty level when he only played 11 games, but still had 47 catches for 760 yards and 5 TDs. Last year was the second time that he failed to reach 1,000 yards, with 75 catches for 943 yards. His reception percentage actually increased to 67.6%, but his targets fell below 8 per game for only the second time in his career. Colston has had multiple knee issues, but has only missed four games in the past five seasons. He has more targets and receptions from Drew Brees than any other Saint and the two have always had a connection. Brees called him "Mr. Dependable, Mr. Steady, when I need a play, I can always count on him." The two have partnered to produce 63 TD passes and should move higher on the all-time quarterback to wide receiver touchdowns list over the next few seasons. Colston's 63 TDs leads the Saints' franchise for TDs scored. He should continue to be Brees' most targeted wide receiver this year, but by a smaller margin. (May 17)
