6 years ago.....not under sean payton....not under gregg williams

its been 6 years since we drafted anyone out of LSU....

before that it was '97 when we drafted nicky savoie in the 6th round and before that it was mike mayes in '89 in the 4th round

so sure......every 9 years we take a gamble on an LSU player

but thats a whole decade.....and sean payton has yet to take a player from LSU

we just dont draft hometown boys

Didn't we try to trade up for a certain LSU DT a few years ago, when we eventually "settled" for Sedrick Ellis????

First off, you said "we" as in the Saints, don't draft LSU players. Obviously not true. But you're right it's few and far between with LSU players.

But that's not a philosophy that our franchise has. It's not like we'd be getting ready to pick, there was a stud from LSU still on the board and was obviously BPA, and Loomis would say, "Whoa guys, he's from LSU, Canton says we don't draft hometown boys. Let's draft that guy from Gettysburg."

If Chad Jones is still around in round three, I say we take a look at him. He's a freak athlete and was, IMO, the best defensive player on LSUs defense last year.

It isn't that "we don't draft hometown boys..."

More correctly they'd already been picked ahead of us in the draft or we had a Ditkahead who traded the farm for a stoner.

its not that we are going to completely avoid drafting him because hes from LSU

and sure, if hes available later then there should be consideration in drafting him

but he is projected as a 2nd or 3rd round guy and we pick at the end of each round.....not likely we will draft him because he will be gone before we pick and its not like we go out of the way to get LSU kids just because they are from LSU

does that sound better?
