The great state of Louisiana has produced some of the best in the sport of American football.

Consistently one of the highest states with players in the NFL on a per capita basis, there have been nearly 1,000 Louisiana-born players to have played in the league.

The number grows even larger when it includes players who were not born in Louisiana but played college football in The Boot.

Just last May, 19 of the 259 players selected in the 2021 NFL Draft had Louisiana ties.

As we head into conference championship weekend, take one glance at the rosters of the 4 remaining teams (Bengals, Chiefs, 49ers, Rams), and you'll come across 18 players with Louisiana ties, many of whom were born and raised in the state.
