New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams spoke publicly for the first time Monday since the NFL draft two weeks ago. And like everyone else, he raved about the Saints' 2011 class, which included five defensive players.

Williams said he loves California defensive end Cameron Jordan's versatility, he's excited by Illinois linebacker Martez Wilson's potential as a strong-side linebacker, and he likes the upside of Louisville cornerback Johnny Patrick, Pittsburgh defensive end Greg Romeus and Illinois linebacker Nate Bussey.

But he said tailback Mark Ingram "might be the best pick we took, even though he's on the offensive side of the ball."

...

"He's the first guy we've had in here that really fits the profile of a Scott Fujita," Williams said. "Last year, we used four different guys in different packages. When Martez earns the right to get on the field, he can do a lot of those things. We were fortunate to get him where we got him (in Round 3)."

But he said tailback Mark Ingram "might be the best pick we took, even though he's on the offensive side of the ball."

"I really like him because he'll keep our defense off the field at the end of the game, because he can run the ball in the power running game," Williams said before teeing off at the Saints Hall of Fame Celebrity Golf Classic. "So I'm really pleased with the whole group of guys."

Danno and I kept saying this.

Other than that, it looks like all of our draft choices will see the field in 2011.

Like I've said before, this is the best draft I've ever seen from the Saints, and I've seen them all.

I agree. It looks like every player may make the team, and contribute.

GW was talking like Romeus and Bussey already made the team.
