O gets his man - Jackson Clarion-Ledger
For better or worse, ex-Ole Miss coach Ed Orgeron has wasted no time making his imprint on the New Orleans Saints.

Orgeron's influence was evident early in Saturday's NFL draft when the Saints traded up three places to the seventh pick and selected Sedrick Ellis, a defensive tackle Orgeron recruited to Southern Cal five years ago.

My take: This move was definitely for the better. Ellis, a 300-pounder with uncommon quickness for a man so huge, should make an immediate impact...

..."Sedrick is very explosive, very versatile," Orgeron said. "He's an outstanding pass rusher, very tough. He's also an outstanding young man who will be a great guy in our locker room."...
