I have used the same comparison many times. He reminds me a lot of Taylor when he first came into the league, moreso than what Taylor became. I love Jordan and think he has immense potential.
truth that's called he doesn't care about run responsibilities and playing contain...he's all about getting upfield and he leaves huge holes for backs to cut into cause of it...it's been a problem for texas run d all year long...
as for dion jordan can cover slot wrs come on guys...if you draft that guy and you're miami it isn't to cover slot wrs down the field it's to drop occasionally and cover the flats and to first and foremost get after the damn qb...a lot of that other stuff is worthless...and that kid needs to play standing up as much as possible...if you play him as an every down end that's a liability against the run i can tell ya that...so if i'm miami and i'm taking dion jordan he's rushing standing up off the edge against tackles and he's gonna have to develop some pass rush moves
hoops scoops 2012 season ..."in 2014 ryan tannehill etches his name in stone amongst the games elite qbs"..."ryan tannehill and andrew luck will carry the afc for the next decade plus the way peyton manning and tom brady have this last decade plus"
love the get off tools but the rush arsenal is lacking and the lack of strength is a concern off the edge
Love his speed and wow does he have some long arms....good for slapping down passes. I watched him kill my ASU Sun Devils. We need this guy!!

The GIANTS have shown everyone how it's done. And it wasn't by winning a "shootout", either. TOMMY doesn't throw very accurately when (a) throwing off his back foot; (b) throwing while running for his life; or (c) throwing while on his back. Simple enough formula. WAKE, however, is MIAMI's only pass-rushing threat presently: the ODRICK experiment is a failure i/m/o. But drop ODRICK i/s to DT and find another JT type, and TOMMY won't like seeing MIAMI come to town, and he also would look for another, safer vacation destination.
