NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - With their fifth and final pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, the Saints selected a running back with big potential.

The Saints took Daniel Lasco with the 237th overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. Lasco, a running back out of California, measures in at 6'1" tall and 209 lbs.

Lasco also has a reputation on special teams. During his freshman year, he led his team with 12 special teams tackles.
