2013 NFL Draft: Dion Jordan to Visit New York Jets

Tony Pauline reports the Jets are using one of their official visits on Oregon pass rusher Dion Jordan.

Dion Jordan/OLB/Oregon official visit list thus far includes Kansas City, Jacksonville, Cleveland, Arizona & New York Jets....

Jordan is expected to be a high first round pick in next month's NFL Draft. A ton of pass rushers are expected to go early in the first round, and the Jets have had a need for an edge rusher since...like...forever so Jordan is a potential New York pick.

Jordan is coming off labrum surgery after he had a very good showing at the Combine.

Here's what Mocking the Draft says about Jordan:

At the University of Oregon, the game of football is played at a different speed. Ducks defensive end Dion Jordan fits that mold to a tee, possessing rare movement skills for a man of his stature. The senior is wrapping up just his third season playing on the defensive side of the football after being recruited to Oregon as a tight end.

The Ducks aren't regretting moving Jordan to the defensive side of the ball. He led the team with 7.5 sacks as a junior. Jordan's sack numbers dropped in his senior season, but he has shown his versatility in coverage. Jordan appears primed to the first Oregon Duck defensive player drafted in the top-15 since Haloti Ngata.
