There were 14 LSU players drafted and 5 (!) in the first round. With Burrow leading the way at No. 1 and five in the last 13 picks, the Tigers were well represented in the 2020 NFL Draft and should have a high impact this coming season.
As for the Saints, most of the former Tigers they picked were a massive hit with the team and often times stayed in the Big Easy for the entirety of their careers. That type of loyalty is something franchises love to see.
