NFC South Top 25: No. 24

By Pat Yasinskas

We continue my NFC South Top 25 with No. 24:

Marques Colston, wide receiver, New Orleans Saints

What he did in 2012: He caught 83 passes for 1,154 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Why he’s No. 24 in 2013: Colston often gets overlooked and there are two reasons for that. First, he’s a team player and doesn’t have the diva personality so many receivers do. Second, his numbers probably are deflated a bit because he shares a passing game with a bunch of good receivers, tight ends and running backs. But there’s no way I’m leaving Colston off this list. Despite the fact the Saints spread the ball around so much, Colston is the guy that quarterback Drew Brees looks to when it matters most.
