    Kevon's Dream Draft Player Profile # 1

    I figured with the lack of news, it would be of a service to some of the posters that may not seek out indepth pre-draft research, to gather hear about some of the players that are looking like studs.


    Player number # 1
    Cameron Jordan DE CAL
    6'4 280 lbs

    Why we should draft him:
    In 2009 he was credited with 9.5 sacks playing along side another first round pick in a 3-4 scheme. This season he was routinely doubled team and still managed 5.5. During Senior bowl week, he considered "unblockable" Going against the likes of Nate Solder (considered the best OT in the draft by many). He beat single blocks, double teams and chips. Strong enough to play DT and quick enough to play LDE (Hey Marr), the guy moves well and will shoot up draft boards. I expect him to be selected around @ 17 by NWE. He reminds me a lot of Kevin Williams.

    Re: Kevon's Dream Draft Player Profile # 1

    A bit of a reach if we pick him with the 12th overall, i got him rated as a late first rounder.

    DE is pretty deep this year, i really like Ryan Kerrigan in our spot in the first round or if Robert Quinn falls to us.

    I vote NO EARLY DE

    Roll with Allen and Robison.. Mix in some Everson.. Maybe a project later

    I think it won't be a reach. I expect his stock to rise. Remember when his teammate was drafted by the Jags and everyone said "WHO"......similar guy. Extremely talanted but for some reason the national spotlight escapes him. Like I said, he is singlehandedly destroying the top OTs in this draft class. He'll be in the top 20. I think trading back around pick 20 and snagging a few extra pick.

    I hear you. Not saying that this is a guy we have to draft. Just sheading some insight in a player that if we went DE, we should nab. I thought this would be a service for those truly interested in the draft.
