|Post Draft Comments Regarding Cameron Jordan
|The Saints needed a defensive end to improve their pass rush so they drafted defensive
end Cameron Jordan with their 24th pick in the first round of Thursday's NFL Draft at
Radio Center Music Hall in New York.
Cameron said he's looking forward to playing for the Saints and defensive coordinator
Gregg Williams. Following is a question-and-answer session with Jordan:
Can you talk about being drafted by the Saints?
I'm just happy to be drafted period. I was getting a little bit worried. I'm doing well.
You came in and met with the coaching staff a couple of weeks ago. How did you feel
about that and do you feel that and do you think that solidified your status with the club?
For sure. We had such a great talk. It was like "Cam we feel like you're going to be here
so we're not going go have to worry about you," so the moment I popped up to 24, Gregg
Williams shot me a text saying we're about to call you.
How do you feel like you're going to fit in with the 4-3 base defense in New Orleans?
I think I'm going to fit in fine. I adapt well. I get along with everybody. Everybody gets
along with me and I'm going to fit in very well.
Are you surprised you fell this far?
I don't know if I was surprised. It was definitely eye-opening seeing how the draft works
first hand. You always have some crazy things happen. I don't pay too much attention to
mocks anyway, so I'm happy I'm here.
Right after you were selected the Saints made a bold move to get Mark Ingram. What did
you think of that?
Two first-rounders, that's impressive in itself. Now you have a defensive end and a
running back. That's impressive in itself. Let's get it going.
