Re: Saints Sign UDFA LSU Tackle Adrian Magee

SP signs an LSU player?


Seriously... 14 kids drafted, AND 5 UDFA for a total of 19 off of ONE team. That is insane. LSU really was loaded!

He's better at Guard. And he commits a TON of penalties. If they can get him to clean up the penalties, he has the raw strength to maul people in the run game, and make a solid backup.

Re: Saints Sign UDFA LSU Tackle Adrian Magee

It was the greatest college team of all time. Same thing happened to the previous greatest Miami. It was almost impossible to not be in a position to snag one of them with. Probably 20 or more when it's all said and done.

They don't DRAFT LSU players. They've signed a few free agents before, like Harry Coleman, Travin Dural and Will Clapp. They're willing to make zero risk UDFA signings.

But they avoid LSU's top prospects in the actual draft like the plague. It's just hard to not, by happenstance, run into a player from one of the top talent producers in the nation, when your pick comes up, at least once every three or four years. They take guys from Ohio State, Florida, Alabama, etc. But not LSU.

It's not a requirement. It's just weird that it never happens.

Clapp was drafted in the 7th. He was not a free agent.

I agree.

5 LSU players taken in the 1st round. Jefferson was within reach and we passed on Queen. I actually thought we would target another CB (Fulton) or a safety (Delpit). Both projected to go in the 1st but slid to rd 2.

IMO half of the Tigers taken in the 2020 draft will have some sort of "impact" for their respective teams. Not trying to sound like a LSU homer but they produce good to elite level production at the NFL level every year.

But to your point, we have no issues selecting one in the lower rounds or undrafted.

Weird .
