In a lot of cases the better LSU players in the draft each year have been going early in Rounds 1 & 2. The Saints haven't always had the 'luxury' of selecting early due to their relative success each year. And even when a good LSU player was available, the Saints have had a need at a position different than the LSU player who is available.
A local sportswriter (Nick Underhill) crunched some numbers and found that the Saints are fairly average when it comes to players from their state’s major college football power. A few LSU fans have been vocal in their irrational belief that the Saints have it out for them, but they’re pretty rare — just loud.
