  • Input on Dion Jordan....

    Idk much about the kid, but he seems to have legit pass rushing ability....my question is to you guys that watch more college ball than I do & are more familiar with Jordan than I am ..
    He's listed at 6'7 243, is that accurate? Does he ever take any snaps with his hand in the dirt?
    And what's your option on him bulking to 260ish & being a 4-3 end?

    3-4 OLB in my mind.
    I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)

        I don't think that's accurate right now. He's probably 250 but clearly has the frame to get up to 265 easily. He definitely takes snaps with his hand in the dirt and has amazing speed and agility to round the corner and chase down running backs and mobile QBs. IMO he's more athletic than JPP and could even play linebacker.

          That seems to be the case....But with all the talk about taking a DE, im curious to know who does everyone expect to be a option.....Im honestly not buying into the Ansah hype, Mingo is a 3-4 in the leauge & cant play the run....Okafor i havent seen enough of him to determine, but from what I have seen, idk if i see a guy thats a BPA at 19...And from the looks of it, theres a drop off after the top 5 passrushers...

            Its a team by team basis Kiwanuka plays LB for the Giants and Jordan is better suited for that role than Kiwi.

              I think Mingo can play the run as an outside LB. Mingo would not be a bad fit for the Giants at LB.

                Mingo plays the run pretty well as a DE too. I think its more assuming he wont play the run well at the next level because he is only 240 pounds.

                  As far as a kiwi type role, the Dude is soo long & comes of the line in a hurry , plays the run decent & seen him cover WRs...crazy....

                    Except that he's almost a pure pass rusher.

                    And saying you can play LB better than Kiwi isn't exactly setting the bar very high.

                    Usually tweeners like that we call 3-4 OLBs (but yeah I could see the Kiwi comparisons).
