Beckham played for three seasons at LSU, finishing with 143 career receptions for 2,340 yards and 12 touchdowns. He was a third-team All-American selection in 2013 and won the Paul Hornung award as the nation's most versatile player. He had two punt return touchdowns during his college career. Beckham was chosen in the first round by the Giants in 2014 and went on to win the AP Offensive Rookie of the Year Award.
Peterson had a decorated three-year career at LSU, finishing with 135 total tackles and seven interceptions.



He was a unanimous All-American in 2010 and won the Thorpe Award and Bednarik Award. He was taken by the Cardinals with the fifth pick in the 2011 draft and has made four Pro Bowls.


Mathieu played two seasons for the Tigers in 2010 and 2011 and received plenty of accolades. He was a consensus All-American in 2011 and was named the SEC Defensive Player of the Year. He won the Bednarik Award as the nation's best defensive player and finished fifth in the Heisman Trophy voting. Mathieu was dismissed from the team before the 2012 season after multiple drug test failures.



Despite this, he was taken in the third round of the 2013 draft by the Cardinals. In two seasons, he's appeared in 26 games and made 105 total tackles with three interceptions.


Other notable players: Morris Claiborne, Rueben Randle and Eric Reid.

Les Miles was loaded with talent however he simply didn't know X's and O's.

No wonder he was fired.

Theres a list on another site that shows teams that drafted LSU players over the last 20 or 30 years.

The Saints were 4th on the list.

Re: LSU #1: Total Active NFL Players: 38

Great, so they were drafting LSU players when LSU sucked. Now we have all this talent in the NFL and the Saints want no part of it.

When a program is putting out reliable NFL talent, not just draft choices who go on to flop, you'd think maybe the Saints would look to pluck a player every now and then from that program. But of course, the Saints have missed on a lot of players, period. Always looking to turn some "raw" athlete into gold. That doesn't work often enough to sustain success, evidently.
