2013 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Dion Jordan, DE, Oregon

A very raw, long, and lean prospect, defensive end, Dion Jordan is one of the leaders on the Oregon Ducks. Given his tremendous frame, the sky is the limit as long as he can continue to add bulk as his career progresses in the NFL.

Jordan is a very good athlete with a good first step and burst. Still requires coaching up in his technique. Relies on long arms to push away defenders. He needs to add strength in his upper and lower body. Projects as 3-4 OLB.

Plays at his best against the run when in pursuit. Not built to handle powerful blockers head-on. His quick first step works best when it gets him into favorable position early. Not particularly aggressive and will sometimes fail to seal the edge contain. He has experience playing as a defensive end. Jordan is very tough and committed. No questioning his motor or hustle. In a few years, he may be able to play 4-3 DE, but must add weight and more power to his game.

He has dramatically climbed to the top of draft boards after a great showing at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Jordan projects as a Top 10 choice in the 2013 NFL Draft.
