Cameron Jordan top edge defender
Cameron Jordan has been absolutely dominant for New Orleans this season, grading out as the best run defender among 4-3 defensive ends and fifth-best among all edge defenders.
Jordan broke out in a big way for the Saints in their Week 7 win at Indianapolis, posting two sacks, two hits and six total hurries against Colts’ quarterback Andrew Luck.
The 2011 first round draft pick from California has not posted a single negative overall game grade through seven games in 2015.
