The New Orleans Saints don’t bring in as much hometown talent as some other NFL teams, but when they do, they get some great players.
We touched on some star players the Saints brought in from the 2019 National Champion LSU Tigers yesterday, and today we’re going to touch on another great Louisiana college in Louisiana Tech.
The Saints have only had five players from Louisiana Tech on their roster in franchise history, but the players they did bring in were pretty good. That’s been a trend with the Saints and Louisiana-native players.
One former Saints player who also attended Louisiana Tech currently resides in the Hall of Fame, not bad for only having five players from the school ever join your roster.
However, that doesn’t mean the Saints were always great during their stretch with the team as New Orleans Saints dominance doesn’t stretch back in the early 00s. That said, let’s take a look at the three best players who played college football at Louisiana Tech to play for the Saints as well.
