With this Tweet, the Arizona Cardinals have set into motion their draft plans for the year. While teams can bring in up to 30 prospects for visits, Oregon’s Dion Jordan, who attended Chandler High, may be one of the Cardinals’ local prospect visits. Teams can bring in local prospects for workouts and interviews without it counting against the 30.
Jordan is an absolute Swiss Army Knife of a defender, but how and where would he fit in within the Cardinals defense? Is he a guy that could be an answer to the Cardinals pass rushing needs? Let’s take a look at Dion Jordan, the prospect.
Dion Jordan, OLB, Oregon – 6-7, 246 lbs
Pros: Jordan is a rare athlete — and by rare, I mean someone that blends an NBA body and athleticism into a football player’s mentality.
Jordan is comfortable standing up outside, as it was his primary position at Oregon, but has ability to move around a defense and even drop into coverage when needed.
