Rookie Cameron Jordan has started every game this season and has shown the versatility that drew the Saints to him leading up to the draft, when they selected him with their top pick (24th overall). He can slide inside from left end to play tackle or line up as a five-technique in the 3-4 and has shown he has the potential to be a solid run stopper for many years to come. That's about what the Saints expected from him this season. Jordan has yet to display much flash. He doesn't have a sack, and he has been credited with only one QB hit and one tackle for loss (both came in Week Nine against Tampa Bay). Jordan quickly gave the coaching staff confidence that he was ready to play — the Saints released veteran Alex Brown, who entered camp as the starting left end, before the season — and all indications are the Saints are satisfied with Jordan's performance.
