    Dion Jordan could be involved in Dolphins’ special teams

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...special-teams/

    Posted by Mike Florio on April 28, 2013, 11:54 AM EDT

    When the Dolphins traded up from No. 12 to No. 3 in round one of the draft, they primarily got a defensive end.
    They also may have gotten a guy who’ll show up elsewhere.


    No, not at tight end. (That’s the position Dion Jordan played when he arrived at Oregon.) Instead, Jordan could play special teams.
    Specifically, coach Joe Philbin hasn’t closed the door on that possibility.
    Who else thought about Lawrence Taylor on the kick block team in the original Tecmo Bowl when they read that?

    one of the worst ideas i've seen in a while...playing your top 5 pick on specials against guys who barely make the 53...good way to lose the guy...hells no
    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"

    It's my understanding that they want him blocking field goals, not on coverage or blocking.

    well that's no big deal...and a no brainer...i guess given the length...but i don't want to see him covering kicks...i know he can do it and it looked great on oregon tape but unless he blows at everything else there's no way i'd use him on kick returns or coverage...no way

    That was my understanding as well. I don't think they will ever consider him on kick and punt coverages, just want to take advantage of his size to block kicks.
