Cam Jordan named Honorable Mention All-American

The Cal football's defensive end and team leader Cameron Jordan was named an honorable mention All-American by Pro Football Weekly on Monday.

The annual team honors the most talented players in college football and is determined based on considerable feedback from NFL evaluators taking into consideration a player's pure talent and contribution to his team. Unlike many other teams rewarding the best college football players, Pro Football Weekly places an extra premium on true talent and draft value in the selection process. However, participants are expected to have contributed for the bulk of the season, leaving off some talented prospects that were limited this season. Extra attention was paid to qualities such as toughness, competitiveness and work ethic.

Jordan recorded career highs of 62 tackles to rank fifth on the club and first among defensive linemen, as well as 12.5 tackles for loss for a 1.04 per game average that was second on the squad and tied for sixth in the conference at the end of the regular season. Jordan's 5.5 sacks were a half sack shy of his career high and second on the team, with his 0.46 sacks per game average ninth in the Pac-10 through the end of the regular season. He also had a career-high and team-high-tying three forced fumbles for an average of 0.25 per game that currently ranks tied for third in the Pac-10. Jordan finished his collegiate career with 175 tackles, 34.0 tackles for loss, 16.5 sacks, one interception, five pass breakups, four forced fumbles and five fumble recoveries, two of which he returned for touchdowns.

He was previously honored as a first-team All-Pac-10 player both on the official all-conference team and the one selected by Phil Steele. He was also a second-team all-league choice by Scout.com and on the final watch list for the 2010 Ted Hendricks Award given to the nation's top defensive end.
