Overview:

Cameron Jordan made a name for himself at the Senior Bowl where his athleticism and motor we’re put on display. Jordan’s a great player because he can play in both the 4-3 and the 3-4 which adds a lot of value. He can be a good 4-3 DE, but I think he can excel as a 3-4 DE. He’s got great strength and quickness for his size and he’s violent inside. He needs to clean up his technique a little bit more, but he has the potential to be a great player.

    Nice report on Jordan, who has certainly been rising up draft boards since the Senior Bowl. I agree he could be a better fit in a 3-4 and perhaps NE is a potential destination
