Who are the best LSU football players of all time? The Louisiana State University 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. Following the recent hire of Brian Kelly, the Fightin' Tigers look set to reset, reload, and reclaim their spot among college football's elite. So, who is the best LSU football player ever? Which LSU football stars do you love?

For 60 years, running Billy Cannon was LSU's only Heisman winner in program history. But, in 2019, the Tigers went on a championship run led by LSU's second Heisman winner: QB Joe Burrow. A stacked LSU Tigers roster, which included NFL stars like Justin Jefferson, Ja'Marr Chase, Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Derek Stingley Jr., among others, went undefeated and capped off a perfect season by putting almost an entire starting lineup in the NFL. 

Then, there's older LSU stars who've made big names for themselves in the NFL as well. NFL Pro Bowlers like Patrick Peterson, Odell Beckham, Jarvis Landry, Tyrann Mathieu, Jamal Adams, Kyle Williams, and Andrew Whitworth have all had long professional careers and made their marks in the NFL. 

 So, whether you think LSU is DBU, WRU, QBU, RBU, OLU or DLU, you can help decide who are the best LSU Tigers of all time. Vote below for all the best LSU football players and downvote any LSU football player who didn't live up to the hype.
