With the 11th pick in the 2022 draft, the Saints picked up the ultra-smooth Chris Olave out of Ohio State.

Buckeyes have always done well in New Orleans, and Olave was no different, being a bright spot in an otherwise anemic offense.


Now he's a Rookie of the Year Finalist.


The rook managed to put up impressive numbers considering he also didn't play every game this season, unlike some of his fellow finalists.

He suffered a scary-looking concussion in the Saints' victory over the Seahawks, and struggled with a leg injury later in the season.


But the rookie still managed a thousand yards on only 72 receptions, and 4 touchdowns, putting up similar numbers to competing rookie receiver Garrett Wilson of the New York Jets.
