Saints: Ranking the top pass rushers in the NFC South
Cam Jordan has been All-Pro, a Pro Bowler, and now he just needs that Super Bowl ring to garner the Hall of Fame class. Jordan didn’t hold back last year despite reaching 30 years old.
Jordan turned in his best season by recording 15.5 sacks. He might be 31 years old and playing a young man’s game, but his motor and consistent production places him at No. 2 on this list. He hasn’t missed a game in his whole career, which is absolutely ridiculous.
I don’t think there’s another player who I’m more confident that will get 12+ sacks next year. He’s a great player, he’s improving, he stays healthy, and he plays on a defense that has plenty of pass-rushing opportunities.
He might not have the same potential as Davenport, but he’s a savvy veteran and he’s very consistent. Jordan gets double team attention all the time, but he still clocks in pro bowl seasons every year.
If Jordan wins the defensive player of the year next season and wins a Super Bowl at the same time, he’s without a doubt a first-ballot Hall of Famer.
Let’s take a look at not just the best pass rusher in the NFC South, but the entire league.
