But, beyond that, as hard as it is for me to say it as an LSU fan, I think some of the issues with LSU players may have been character which is clearly very important to Payton and Loomis. There were clearly some very bad things going on with the program off the field under Les Miles and I think the Saints being so close probably had some idea that these guys should have gotten in a lot more trouble than they did and were aware of some attitude issues. Hopefully that has changed, but it takes awhile to change the culture around a program.
Some good points here....but I don't think Orgeron is running a tight, clean program either....

Yes I’m sure a $1 billion dollar team in a cut throat league deliberately avoids players from certain schools (like LSU) out of spite. I don’t think people realize how crazy their Saints hate LSU argument is.

guess what? If the Saints had the #1 pick last year, they would have selected Joe Burrow.

No one said they are deliberately avoiding players from LSU. Personally, I said that I find it “odd” bc LSU produces as great of talent, as any (or more) college. Here’s a clip SP GUSHING over players from Ohio St
Now, maybe his infatuation with Ohio St or his Illinois connections (yes Urban Meyer and SP go back to Illinois days) seems to be the trump card in all of this, and it most likely is. So, with that being said, he’s not deliberately avoiding LSU or any other school, he’s just focused way more on one than others. In a round about way, it’s not deliberate, but there is a level of short sited-ness there.
Oh and guess what.....whoever was picking #1 last year was going to select Joe Burrow.....minus a few team if they already had a franchise QB, not set to retire and such. Heck, I would even say the Giants would’ve selected Joe despite having Daniel Jones. And I know Daniel personally 😂

Landry was definitely available when the Saints had the chance to pick. It was a definite need and he has proven he could be heavily relied upon.

I'm pretty sure the player that was drafted didn't pan out either.

He was available for both our 1st and 2nd round picks. Instead, we went Cooks and Jean-Baptiste, both who didn't really pan out...
