Let's talk about you and me. Let's talk about all the good things and the bad things that may be. Let's talk about Saints.
No, not sex! Saints.
So, personally, I don't think I could have better selected two first-round picks that I would want the Saints to choose (/coughs get stuck with).
Cameron Jordan: Good player, no doubt. The Saints have chosen a 3-4 DE, that in the eyes of many scouts:
The only thing keeping Jordan down some draft boards is his perceived low ceiling. As a four year starter, Jordan may not get any better than he is right now.
While I think Jordan will be a solid player for the Saints for many years, I don't think he'll be on the that the Falcons, and Matt Ryan in particular, will fear.
Mark Ingram is a beast and has the potential to be a top 10 back in the League. I was pleased to see that the Saints want to 'get serious' with the Falcons and also sacrificed their 2011 First-Rounder to get him. Ingram's situation is reminiscent of the hesitation surrounding Adrian Peterson when he was drafted - injuries that could threaten his career. Apparently, teams were more wary of Ingram's history (and future) than Peterson, which, I find quite comforting.
In the end, I think the Saints got two role-players with three 1st-round picks. They may end up being more, but time will tell.
What do you guys think?
