As much as I love Jordan's potential as a pass rusher, I think he may be our answer to the onslaught of beastly TEs that are sprouting up league wide, particularly the one who started this trend that we see twice a year...The Gronk
In college Jordan covered slot WRs and TEs, he has the speed and agility for it, and most importantly he has the size.
I think that may be one of the aspects of his talent that most excited our staff.
Yea we have speedy LBs in Ellerbe and Wheeler that should be good in coverage, but they still aren't the answer to covering TE's.
I can see a nickel Defense where Jordan and Ellerbee/ Wheeler are the LBs, we line Jordan up man over the TE, and blitz or spy the other, depending on the QB we're facing.
I'm absolutely ecstatic about the potential our defense has with all the new speed we acquired this offseason...
What say you?
