For the second year, Atlanta picks a Bayou Bengal.

Last year, LSU Tigers cornerback Jalen Collins went to the Atlanta Falcons in the second round. In 2016, the trend continues as the Dirty Birds have taken linebacker Deion Jones with their second round pick.

Jones is LSU's first pick of the 2016 draft and continues a very lengthy streak for the program. Not since 1993 has LSU gone 0-for in the NFL Draft, so that streak is now pushed from 1994-2016.

Jones ranked No. 100 on SB Nation's Top 300 big board.

Best of luck to Deion in Atlanta!
