  • Jordan Campbell LB Possible GEM

    I don't know if anyone knows about this kid. I just found out about him literally about 30 minutes ago. He is a LB from New Mexico Highlands University. I read an article (I'll post below) that he was the highest ranked LB then signed with USC and played well when he got in his freshman year and then had an ankle injury where he was out the rest of the season. After the season was when all of the scandals came out about Pete Carroll and USC. He then transferred to L'ville and was going to have to sit out a year. His Grandmother got sick and he wanted to go to school closer to her so he went to New Mexico Highlands University. He said that he decided that school because he saw that they were the last in their division and he wanted to help them to become good. He eventually lead them to an 8-2 record, first time since 1998.

    He broke some records while he was at NMHU including 28.5 tackles for loss in a season! He also was their punter at their school and booted a 89 yarder lol. He says that since he has played for NFL coaches and he was played with NFL players when at USC that he learned a lot from them and he is a better all around player. It is obvious that he is good against the run with the 28.5 tackles for loss but he says that he is good in coverage because he is a little undersized so that results in him being faster. There is a interview that he took with the site I will post. It is a Patriots site of some sort, I just found it and clicked for the interview to see what he said. I came out to be impressed with the kid.

    http://www.patriotsgab.com/2012/11/2...-an-interview/

    There is a video of him benching 225 39 times which is better than anyone at the combine and he is a 240 pound LB! I find that extremely impressive. I usually do not get wrapped up in combine numbers making someone jump up my list but that is crazy.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yL4R8tKbaZY

    Here is a highlight video of the kid. He looks like an absolute freak of nature not going to lie. He says he thinks that he could be a 5th round pick or so. He says that he is pretty versatile claiming he can play OLB, MLB, RB, FB, Punter haha.

      Yeah there is a bunch of videos of him talking about how he works hard all the time and shows him working out. I think he could be a beast. I read that after his pro day he hopes to be a 4th round prospect but I am not sure when his pro day is. I think he is going to be at the New Mexico pro day which is today if I am understanding correctly. I am intrigued to see what kind of numbers this kid can toss up. If he was at the combine with those bench press numbers and whatever his 40 time etc is.. he probably would have been the talk of the combine haha.

        He is clearly an athletic freak. But, that video isnt complimentary of anything but his athletic skills and his ability to close and hit.

        He would need a lot of work to be a 43 MLB honestly. Nowhere do I see him taking a deep drop and more and a couple times I see him using poor technique in taking on blocks, relaying on that insane athletic ability just a lil too much. Also, In almost all of that vid I see a guy moving forward.

        It is a nice start tho and the things he does have he has in droves(hit, forward movement, closing). I think 34 teams are drooling.

          Yeah I do not think that he is a MLB in a 4-3 system. Although he says he can play it, I am really not seeing it. I think he is better off as an OLB where he can use his athletic ability more to his advantage rather than being trapped in the middle of all the blockers and anything. He looks like he has good instincts and definitely athletic enough to be a NFL player. If he got coached up a bit on technique on things like taking on blockers he could be a very good player I honestly think. A lot of 3-4 teams if they hear about this kid would be very high on this kid. OLB is what he has played mostly to my understanding so thats probably the best fit. Jaquain and him on the outside would be some freakish athletic OLB's huh haha. I really want to see what he does at his pro day today. I think he really could open some eyes.

            Its not that I dont think he could be a 43 MLB, but rather that he is going to have more value as a 34 ILB come draft day. You can clearly see the 34 skillset. If you let this kid run around he will make plays. Thats what 34 guys do. But 43 guys have to be able to take on blocks and drop back well.

            So while I think he might be worth a 3rd or 4th rounder some 34 team with a ILB need might think he is a late 2nd round prospect.

              Yeah I know what you mean about seeing this guy on a 3-4 and just letting him run around the field. He would be really good in that system, I think he could solid in a 4-3 too if he gets taught his role. He says he understands NFL like coaching and practices since he played for Carroll a year. From the kids attitude in videos I watched sounds like he will be willing to do anything to make the coaches happy and make an impact and looks like an extremely hard working kid. I would love to see us bring him in with a mid round pick. I could see him being picked up earlier like you said though by a 3-4 team that would love to have a kid like this flying around making plays.

                Kinda reminds me of that kid Jake Massau player we brought in from UDFA..A troy Palamolu type LB. Looks good, 5th round sounds good.

                    He could be a beast, but he also played in a crappy division. Would have liked to see him suited In L'ville. Nonetheless, Im interested to see what pans out for him.

                    1. Christian McCaffrey RB Stanford
                    2. Raekwon McMillan ILB Ohio State
                    3. Roderick Johnson OT Florida State
                    4. Jordan Leggett TE Clemson

                      Yeah I know, small school guys are hard to judge because of the difference of talent that they are playing against. I guess his freshman year he started one game for USC and he had the most tackles on their team that game but its kind of hard to take anything away from that. I wish he would have been invited to like the senior bowl or something where you could see him against other draft prospects. Just listening to the guy in videos he sounds super focused though. He says he's been through losing family members and friends to transferring schools that it has just made him work even harder to make his dream of playing in the NFL come true. He compares himself to Ray Lewis in the way of working hard in the weight room and giving all he has every game on the field.

                        Jordan Campbell pro day results are in! Height 5'10 1/2, Weight 248.5, Bench 225 35 times, 40 yard dash 4.58, vertical 36.5, broad jump 9.7, shuttle 4.2, L cone drill 7.1, 60 yrd shuttle 11.78.

                        Those are some pretty crazy numbers I will compare them to LB's from the combine this year. 40 time 3rd place out of LB's, Bench 2nd (seen doing 39 though...), Vertical 4th, Broad jump out of top 10.., L cone drill tied for 5th (2 people at 3rd), 20 yard shuttle tied for 2nd, 60 yrd shuttle 3rd.

                        Now granted those are pro day numbers which are typically better because a player is at their own stadium etc and not as much pressure. For this kid he had to have felt a ton of pressure and he did not play at where the pro day was held. Give or take a bit on the times being that it is a pro day I think he put on a pretty nice performance!

                              I don't think that he is juiced. Most people who use the garbage have huge muscles one their forhead/eyebrow area. I know plenty of people who have been on the juice and they have class A roid head. Which is what I like to call it. I imagine since this kid had 28.5 tackles for loss that he made his film based off of tackles. You do not see many LBs at all in their highlights dropping back in coverage. That is not ehat they are know for. It is a highlight for a reason. Unless he has some INTs he wants to add it will be all tackles for a LB.... the kid does eork out and put up some crazy numbers at the combine. I think he will probably go 4-5 round. Maybe higher if a 3-4 tean sees his ability to run around and make plays. The kid I do not think is on the garbage or ever was. You can honestly tell if you look at s ok someones forhead and they have a bulge in the eyebrow area like a muscle then 9/10 they juiced. I am dead serious haha try it out on someone you are pretty sure uses it and look at that area and if they have eye brow muscles that is not normal. Look at a picture.of Clay Matthews for god sakes he for sure did it at some point in his life.. 4-5th rounder on this kid I would be all over it!
