Cameron Jordan scouting report

Cameron Jordan DE California #97

Ht: 6’4″

Wt: 287

Elite size/athleticism combination. Impressive strength. Holds up well at the point of attack against the run. Has the strength to use the bull rush as well as the speed to come off the edge. Explosive off the snap. Has experience lining up with his hands off the ground as a pass rusher. A true three-down lineman. Plays with a motor that never dies. NFL bloodlines – father, Steve Jordan, was a six-time Pro Bowl tight end for the Vikings.
Doesn’t have the speed to be an elite pass rusher.¬†Arrested on a DUI charge in 2008.
Jordan is one of the most polished prospects in this year’s draft class. Typically defensive ends don’t come off the board early unless they’re projected to be impact pass rushers, but Jordan is unique. We see a lot of specialized players these days – either pass rushers or run stuffers – but Jordan excels at both. He has the ability to play end in a 3-4 or 4-3 scheme, which increases his chances of coming off the board early.
