NFL Draft Results: New Orleans Saints Select DE Cameron Jordan

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

Who Dat Nation is Cameron Crazy!!!

Personally, I love this pick. Jordan was ranked significantly higher than 24th overall by almost all draft analysts this off-season but thanks to a run on offensive talent earlier in the first round, the Saints were able to pick him up easily. He was just too good to pass up in this spot. Ideally, Jordan is a better fit as a 3-4 defensive end but he's definitely versatile enough to play wherever Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams puts him.
