New Orleans Saints Select Cameron Jordan With 24th Overall Pick

With the 24th overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the New Orleans Saints selected California defensive end/tackle Cameron Jordan.

The Saints just got tremendous value and a steal in round one. I realize 23 other teams passed on Cam Jordan, but this is a guy with top-ten talent. Jordan can play defensive end or tackle for the Saints - both positions of need for New Orleans.

Gregg Williams loves to bring pressure, so he must be ready to hit Bourbon Street after this pick. Jordan will bolster that defensive line and, maybe, cause enough havoc to bring back that takeaway hungry defense. I also would not be surprised if New Orleans moved back into round one to pick up another player who fills a need - Alabama running back Mark Ingram. Even if they do not make that move, I really like this pick for New Orleans and think Cam Jordan will be a disruptive force for them.
