2013 Guide: What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about DION JORDAN: Oregon, 6062 248 4.59. Two-year starter who started his career as a tight end. Was moved to defense in 2010. Projects as a 3-4 outside linebacker and a nickel pass rusher. Experience in coverage. Tall and lean angular build, somewhat ‘praying mantis’ like. Uses his long arms to ward off blockers in the run game and when rushing the passer. Was lined up all over the offensive formation to take advantage of matchups in some games. Very athletic with good foot and hand quickness. Makes plays parallel to the line of scrimmage. Quickness to shuffle down the line. Plays in a rotation where he is always fresh. Locks out, stays square, and can string a blocker out to the sideline. Good take off quickness on the snap to burst up the field or bend the edge. Chops the blocker’s hands down to get the edge at times. He does need to develop more pass rush skills. Struggles to stop and stack at the point of attack. Good on plays away. Needs more strength, but will have problems gaining weight with his ectomorphic-like build. Durability will always be a question. Had recent surgery on a torn labrum in his shoulder. 2012 stats: 44 T, 10.5 TFL, 5 sacks, 3 FF. Edge speed:left 1.81, right 2.18. OSR:6/23. First round. (A-33 7/8, H-10, BP-DNP, 10-1.65).
