Physical Attributes – Jordan is thick and powerful. He is not overly long or tall. He shows good twitch and can pull the trigger. He runs really well straight-line. Has some trouble with change of direction due to lower body stiffness but that stiffness is not glaring. Jordan can play sideline to sideline.
Position Specific Skills – Jordan is a very instinctive football player with field and play awareness. He shows strength at point of attack and is excellent at block protection. He shows good burst and acceleration and has good range and speed. He will struggle a bit in space as he does show some lower body stiffness. He is a great tackler, knock back tackler that uses explosion and power to take down a runner. He can blitz and pass rush. Jordan has a ton of position specific skills you like out of a Mike backer.
Overall – Jordan is a true MIke backer. He is thick, strong, tough and a knock back tackler. He shows to be a very instinctive player with great field awareness. He is what you want out of an ILB. A bit stiff in space which affects change of direction but he makes up for that with twitch and athleticism for size. He also runs well. I like his toughness. Overall, Jordan is a really good football player.
