And what about Devery - certainly no failure. How about Stephen Peterman, or Andrew Whitworth, or Donnie Jones (I know, I know), or Bradie James, or Nate Livings, or Kyle Williams, or Reuben Randle, or Todd McClure, or Brandon LaFell, or LaRon Landry....??
I could do this all day. LSU has plenty of players who are having nice careers in the NFL
I wasn't saying that all LSU players were failures in the NFL. I just wanted to see a list of the successes. I agree that some of the ones you listed have been good if not great. It was a serious question looking for an answer, not a "gotcha" question implying that LSU produces nothing but failures.
As per your list, Whitworth is the most successful of them. He's been incredible in Cin. Plus Ryan Clark has been outstanding as well. LaRon Landry has been a dissapointment though, so I wouldn't put him in the list (though he isn't a bad player).
Peterman, Whitorth, James, Clark, Williams, McClure
Landry, Lafell (he hasn't done much)
To Be Determined:
The thing I noticed here is that OL is the one position LSU has succeded the most at, which I am not surprised to see.
Keep off the list all together:
Jones (No kickers allowed!!!)
