Well news is slow and I am bored, so here is a new poll! Lets get to it. Quick and easy.
What is a realistic sack total number for Dion Jordan for it to be a "successful" rookie campaign?
Lets not kid ourselves here. While he is a very dynamic player with a great skill set, his main role will be rushing the passer. With Wake on the other side tearing **** up like he always does, my expectations for Jordan are high. For comparison here are some numbers from rookie years for some of the pass rushers in the game today:
Aldon Smith - 14 sacks (16 games)
Whitney Mercilus - 6 sacks (16 games)
DeMarcus Ware - 8 sacks (16 games)
Bruce Irvin - 8 sacks (16 games)
Chandler Jones - 6 sacks (14 games)
J.J. Watt - 5.5 sacks (16 games)
Jared Allen - 9 sacks (15 games)
Von Miller - 11.5 sacks (15 games)
I vote 8-9.
