Like athleticism? Then you’ll like versatile Oregon defender Dion Jordan. The 6-6 and 248 pound DE/OLB clocked a 4.60 40-yard dash time at this years NFL Combine and proved to everyone just how solid of an athlete he really is.
Versatility is clearly the number one thing that jumps out at you when watching Jordan. One play he’ll rush with his hand in the dirt. The next play he’ll be rushing from a standing position on the other side of line. After that, he’ll jump outside and cover whoever wants to line up in the slot.
Jordan’s bread and butter is lining up on the edge in the standing position and pass rushing with speed. If an offensive tackle doesn’t have a good first step and quick feet, Jordan has the ability to blow past them and wreak havoc in the backfield. Although he didn’t have an overwhelming number of sacks, Jordan has the ability to force the quarterback out of the pocket allowing others to make plays.
