Few SEC programs have pumped out elite NFL talent quite like the LSU Tigers over the last three decades, with those players guiding the school to three national titles between 2003 and 2019. LSU football players have been a staple in plenty of wagers in Louisiana sports betting.
It’s likely of little surprise then that the Baton Rouge institution is among the leaders among SEC schools, in terms of the sheer quantity of alumni included on the 2023 iteration of the NFL 100 list.
Following the 2023 NFL 100 list, LouisianaBets.com tallied which SEC schools produced the most players on the list.

LSU Among SEC Leaders In NFL 100 Talent
Of the nine SEC schools with at least one player on this year’s NFL 100 list, the Tigers ranked third overall, with three alums making the cut.
That trio includes Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Joe Burrow (now of the Cincinnati Bengals), as well as Burrow’s Bengals teammate (wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase) and Justin Jefferson of the Minnesota Vikings.
Burrow has thrived in South Ohio, throwing for 11,774 yards and 82 touchdowns (to 31 interceptions), with a career QBR of 55.8 in 42 games played with the franchise.
Chase has been just as explosive out wide for the Bengals since being drafted by the franchise with the fifth pick of the 2021 NFL Draft, hauling in 168 catches for 2,501 yards and 22 touchdowns.
Fellow NFL wideout Jefferson has been even more explosive than the other two Tigers, winning the AP’s Offensive Player of the Year award in 2022 after making 128 receptions for 1,809 yards with eight touchdowns for the NFC North champs.
On an SEC-wide basis, the Tigers finished behind Alabama (13 players) and Mississippi State (four players) in terms of sheer quantity of talent on the NFL 100 list for 2023.
Still, it’s hard to argue that few SEC programs sport the top-level talent that LSU does, with Burrow, Chase, and Jefferson all calling Baton Rouge their college home after successful tenures with the Tigers.
