63 days remain until the kickoff of the Saints' 2021 season, here is a look at New Orleans' most recent #63, OL Cameron Tom.

The Baton Rouge native played High School football at Catholic where he played OG for the Bears. Tom attended Southern Mississippi where he started as a Freshman. In his Junior year, Tom started all 12 games at Center for the Golden Eagles.
The New Orleans Saints signed Cameron Tom as a UDFA following the 2017 NFL Draft. Tom spent his first NFL season on the practice squad. He made his NFL debut in Week 3 of the 2018 season against the Atlanta Falcons.
During the 2018 season, Tom played a pivotal role as a reserve lineman for the Saints. The UDFA appeared in 11 games and made his first NFL start in the regular-season finale against Carolina. Tom played at least 20 offensive snaps 5 times in his 11 appearances and helped the Saints to a 13-3 record.
