The Louisiana State University Tigers, the Fighting Tigers, are a college football mainstay. With four national championships (the first team to win multiple National titles since the advent of the BCS) and the 11th highest winning percentage amongst teams that have played at least 1,000 games, it is clear that the boys in purple are not to be messed with.

Many of these players went on to successful pro careers in the NFL. So, whether we're talking defensive ends or DBs, wide receivers or quarterbacks, who are the best LSU Tigers of all time?
