    Dion Jordan Official Visit with Jets.

    @RichCimini: Oregon pass rusher Dion Jordan, a possibility for the #Jets at No. 9 (if he lasts), has set up official visit with team, per @TonyPauline.


    Really would like this guy to be there at #9.

    is there an official visits list somewhere

    @TonyPauline: Dion Jordan/OLB/Oregon official visit list thus far includes Kansas City, Jacksonville, Cleveland, Arizona & New York Jets....



    The Jets went through the interview process with each of the top 10 quarterback prospects heading into this year's draft at the combine. But, as suspected, their focus may be more on the other side of the ball with the No. 9 overall pick.

    According to Tony Pauline at Draftinsider.net, the Jets are one of the teams that have scheduled an official visit for Oregon defensive end/outside linebacker Dion Jordan.

    Each team gets 30 visits, which are good for following up on medical issues that may have surfaced at the combine and conducting more in-depth interviews.

    The 6-6, 248-pound Jordan ran a 4.6 40-yard dash and has been slated as high as No. 2 overall to the Jaguars (the Jaguars have also scheduled a visit with Jordan). Some experts, though, feel if he slips past his former college coach Chip Kelley at No. 4, he would be the perfect fit for the Jets at No. 9.

    In three years on defense at Oregon, Jordan had 14 1/2 sacks and four forced fumbles.

    Jordan recently had labrum surgery and is still currently in a sling. Per the Oregonian, Jordan's sling will come off in about a week and a half so he can begin the rehab process.

    The Jets have already signed one pass-rush specialist in Antwan Barnes, but given Seattle's philosophy with John Idzik in the front office, a team can never have enough.

    Disclaimer: I don't watch tapes. Jordan has only played on the D side for 3 seasons?

    Athletically, are Jordan and Jason Taylor similar?

    Jordan signed with Oregon as a highly regarded prep tight end and only made the switch to the defensive side of the ball in the spring of 2010.
    As a reserve defensive end for the Ducks in 2010 Jordan registered 33 tackles, including 5.5 tackles for loss and two sacks.

    To take advantage of his unique combination of burst off the snap and length, Oregon created a hybrid role for Jordan in 2011, lining him up as a stand-up pass rusher and moving him around to find favorable matchups. Demonstrating surprising fluidity for such a tall player, Jordan exploded for 13 tackles for loss and 7.5 sacks, each of which led the team, earning First Team all-conference honors from Pac-12 coaches.

    In 2012, Jordan showcased his versatility to the nation against Arizona State, lining up on the line of scrimmage as a stand-up defensive end, in the box as a linebacker or in the slot, covering inside receivers. Yes - in the slot on receivers, a spot usually reserved for defensive backs.

    Rarely asked to play with his hand in the dirt as a traditional defensive end, Oregon helped protect Jordan as a run-defender as he lacks the bulk to consistently set the edge against 300 pound behemoths. Jordan's long arms and vision, however, allow him to disengage from most blockers quickly and he plays with a high-revving motor, often pursuing the ball-carrier yards downfield.

    Jordan's extraordinary physical tools will likely land him in the first round, now the question is how high?

    Not in favor of this guy, a jack of all trades does not translate into an impact player at the next level. I know everyone and their dog loves him but the draft would have to fall a certain way for me to be okay with him.

    @Gil_Brandt: Oregon DE Dion Jordan met w/ @kcchiefs for 2 hrs. 9 visits scheduled. Injured shoulder will not allow him to work out until June. #NFLDraft

    I would take Mingo over him, I think he would have more potential as a pass rusher.

  11. #11
    If we're going the OLB route, at this stage I prefer Mingo over Jordan.

    However...

    The thing that is truly great about Jordan is his scheme versatility, something extremely vital in today's NFL. He can line up as a 3-4 OLB and a 4-3 SLB in base sets. Plus, he's certainly had the conditioning playing at Oregon and going against a high tempo offense each practice. He could easily stay in the game against the no-huddle. The ability to have Jordan, Wilk, and Coples all line up in multiple positions against a wide assortment of offensive looks would be incredible for the defense.

    I know he doesn't have much rushing from the edge with his hand in the dirt, but I don't see why he couldn't develop that skill in due time.

    My only worry is that he doesn't scream double digit sack guy to me. The only guys in this draft that appear to have that are Mingo and Jones, but they each have red flags of their own.

    Watch some tape of Jordan and I think you see the potential for a double digit sack artist. He has very good bend and explosion off the line. Plus, his hand usage is excellent, much better than Mingo's.

  13. #13
    The good thing is that Rex has an eye for DL and OLBs. He's picked back to back studs. His problem is that he can't spot offensive talent. If we pick an OLB, we should get a good player.

    Agreed 100%

    I can't see a scenario (for me) where Jordan is best player available. With that said, We're picking in the top 10, and I support the FO working out each one of the top prospect. Gotta do our homework, especially with someone like Jordan.

    BOTTOM LINE Jordan's 2012 season ended on a down note, aggravating a shoulder injury during the team's bowl game. He will miss the Senior Bowl and part of the draft process because of it, but Jordan offers a unique blend of comfort in space, length, and pass rush ability. His box scores may not appeal to everyone, but Jordan was frequently asked to cover receivers or tight ends after lining up in the slot opposite them. His future appears to be at strongside linebacker in a four man front, with the ability to rush the passer, or as an outside linebacker in a three-man front.

    Jarvis Jones would be a great pickup for the Jets. He's the most polished pass rusher of the bunch and had proven himself against elite NFL ready talent in at the college level where he was absolutely dominant

    Jordan is wayy ahead of jones/mingo if we are looking for a 3-4 olb. He can play all 4 downs which is rare. He can cover receivers and already gained 10-15 pounds since last season.

    He uses his hands so well, and really can bend. He is just so natural out there his floor is high and has a huge ceiling. If he's there this is my favorite guy out there right now. He's going to be a bigggtime sack guy in the nfl.

    Dion Jordan is not a guy i'm really high on right now, but could see myself getting real excited about if we wound up with him.

    waiting on gay jokes...

    What are you talking about? If by 3-4 OLB you mean dancing around and doing an "OK" job of getting in the offense's way, then sure.

    Better sack artist than Jones?? ....gtfo

    In terms of 3-4 OLB yes, I have him ahead of Jarvis jones in the future.

    But it's not like I'm stating anything crazy here as Mayock and NFL GM's think alike---that's why NFL gms will be taking him before jones.

    He's in consideration for the number 1 overall pick for a reason. Teams have a limited amount of visits. Andy Reid didn't just interview for 2 hours for ****s and gigs

    He is going to be a superstar in the right defense
