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?
