4. Saints prove rich can get richer If a draft could be graded simply on name recognition of the players selected (and, of course, it shouldn't be), no team has enjoyed a better first two days than the New Orleans Saints. They found a scheme-diverse defensive lineman in California's Cameron Jordan with the No. 24 overall pick for defensive coordinator Gregg Williams to get creative with. They traded back into the first round four picks later to nab 2009 Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram, the top running back in the draft. The Saints added another first-round caliber athlete in linebacker Martez Wilson (Illinois) with their third-round pick, No. 72 overall.
With these three making up a virtual Who's Who in the Pac-10, SEC and Big 10, the Saints painted their masterpiece with broad strokes. Adding Louisville cornerback Johnny Patrick with their final pick of the day (No. 88 overall) only adds to their talented class.
