Cameron Jordan becomes the second first round NFL Draft pick in two years for Cal football defensive line coach Tosh Lupoi. He's headed to the New Orleans Saints as the 24th pick to help boost their struggling defense.

Jordan's athleticism made him an early favorite among NFL general managers. His ability to play multiple positions, rush the passer, stuff the run, and strip the ball makes him the sort of playmaker that can instantly upgrade a weak run defense. His familiarity with both the 3-4 and 4-3 schemes should help plug him in with his new team, and he should be in good shape.
