My take
Jordan’s dad was a six time Pro Bowl selection at tight end for the Minnesota Vikings. Jordan has been around football his whole life and plays the game like a seasoned veteran. He is equally stout against the run as the pass and would fit into almost any scheme on the NFL level. Has good power moves and a great bull rush. Uses his hands to shed blocks with ease, too powerful for most tackles, too quick for most guards. Has a nice blend of size/power/quickness. Showed very impressive athleticism at the combine and pro day, where he dropped into coverage as a linebacker, looking like a natural. Won’t lead the NFL in sacks but could get 5-7 a year and be a fixture for a defensive line for the next decade. Jordan reminds me of a more athletic Shaun Ellis.
