In their entire existence prior to Thursday night, the Baltimore Ravens never drafted a player from the LSU Tigers. Ever. Like, literally never ever. So I guess the Tigers were due to have somebody selected from the two-time Super Bowl Champions, as Patrick Queen is heading to B’more.

Baltimore selected the LSU linebacker in the late first round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Queen is a celebrated defensive player, who’ll certainly fit right into the mold of great defensive players in the Ravens’ celebrated history. He will go to a team that finished with the best record in the AFC and also possesses the reigning NFL MVP in Lamar Jackson. It’s pretty easy to say that Queen is going into a great situation in his looming rookie season. Whenever the hell that may be.

Queen was the fourth of five eventual draft picks from LSU in the first round of the NFL Draft. He, along with Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Justin Jefferson, K’Lavon Chaisson and #1 overall pick Joe Burrow comprised that quintet, proving that LSU had a massive stranglehold on the football universe this past year.
