    Jordan: When The Lights Come On I Turn It On



    http://www.miamidolphins.com/news/ar...c-1a3c8bb89844


    Jordan comes from an athletic family and his younger sister, Sherrelle, has the third-fastest time in the state of Arizona in the 100-meter hurdles. She runs for her older brother’s alma mater, Chandler High School, and he calls her “the beast of the family.” Jordan also ran track in high school and was recruited to Oregon as a tight end before Chip Kelly, now the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, switched him to the defensive side of the ball.

    Kelly actually admitted he was thinking about taking his former player with the fourth overall pick on Thursday before Miami made the trade. Beyond Jordan’s physical traits, it was his work ethic and demeanor that also stood out to Ireland and of course his college coach and he prides himself on bringing both with him to Miami.

    “I do feel like I have a high motor,” Jordan said. “I work really hard, not just when it’s game time but everyday leading up. So when the lights come on and when it’s game time I turn it on, and like I said I am looking forward to improving in that area and being a great compliment to (Wake) on the other side.”

    Special teams was something Jordan didn’t shy away from either at Oregon, as he willingly ran down the field on kickoffs and was the first one to meet the returner. He actually enjoyed that aspect of the game and wouldn’t mind doing it at the next level.

    That type of approach to the game is music to the ears of any head coach, and Philbin cracked a smile when he was reminded about Jordan’s special teams acumen. It certainly fits his criteria.

    Seems very high character and definitely seems to fit the mold of a philbin guy. Nice to hear that he is even willing to play special teams, guys like that willing to do whatever it takes to win last a long time in this league

    He has a great work ethic and is a very good player. Just keep a level head! How many guys start to think who they are and sabotage themselves. I doubt Philbin would let that happen and this kid seems too smart to screw it up.

    As I see it he was a luxury pick that they can take their time with and there is no rush to have him start at DE right away.
    Break him in like they did with Wake and in a year or two he may dominate. Give me 8 sacks this year and a couple forced fumbles and it's a good pick.

    I'd love to see him and Wake both standing up as outside backers in a 3/4. Wake was very effective in that D and so would be Jordan i believe. Maybe that's the way to go in passing situations.
