The NFL’s best edge rushers, No. 6: Cameron Jordan

He hasn’t received the same level of publicity the past two seasons, as the Saints bottomed out on defense, but Jordan has continued to be a standout player despite being moved all over the field. Jordan is the rare big-bodied defender who combines quick-twitch athleticism with a non-stop motor. PFF counted 70 total quarterback pressures for Jordan last season. That’s a ton, especially for someone who gets a lot of attention. The Saints brought in more talent on defense this off-season to help Jordan be even better this year.
