20. Dave Waymer

From Notre Dame, Dave Waymer played the entire decade of the 1980s with the New Orleans Saints, who took the Defensive Back with their Second Round Pick.


Waymer became a starting Cornerback, working on the left side, which he worked until 1988.  His best year was 1987 when he was a Pro Bowl and Second Team All-Pro, and he had a personal best 13 in Approximate Value.  The year before was a career-high in Interceptions with nine.  In 1989, which would be his last year as a Saint, he played at Free Safety.

Waymer signed with San Francisco in 1990 and joined the L.A. Raiders in 1992.  He likely would have kept playing but he died from a heart attack in the offseason brought on by his cocaine use.  With the Saints, Waymer had 37 Interceptions.
