New Orleans Saints draft history: 2011 draft

Taking a look back at the 2011 draft

The New Orleans Saints nabbed two starters in the first round of the 2011 draft, Pro Bowl defensive end Cameron Jordan with the 24th pick and Heisman Trophy winning running back Mark Ingram with the 28th pick. Jordan quickly made an impact with the team and is considered by some the team's top defender. Ingram came on strong last season and had an exceptional performance in the team's playoff victory over the Eagles this past season, the first road playoff win in franchise history.
