Saints Draft Jordan And Ingram In First Round

The New Orleans Saints selected Cal defensive end Cameron Jordan with the 24th overall pick of the NFL draft. Four picks later, they shook things up by trading their second round pick, along with next year’s first round pick to the New England Patriots for the 28th overall pick. With it, they took Alabama running back Mark Ingram.

Jordan played in 49 games at Cal, starting 31 during his four year collegiate career. His 6’4, 287 pound never stops moving on the field due to his nonstop motor. He has great speed for a 5 technique, and ran at 4.74 in the 40 yard dash at the scouting combine. Cameron Jordan comes from a football family, as his Father Steve Jordan was a 6-time Pro Bowl tight end for Minnesota Vikings.

Mark Ingram also comes from a football family. His Father Mark played wide receiver for the New York Giants where he won a Super Bowl ring. His son, the newest member of the 2009 Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints, won a Heisman Trophy at Alabama the same year he won a 2009 National Championship. Although he’s a stocky 5’9, his 215 pounds gives him a thick frame, helping him endure hits from the opposing defense. He’s very good at breaking free from initial contract. Ingram is a straight forward, determined runner who possesses excellent field awareness.
