Hunt is a workout warrior. now to take this kid as a project is cool. he is very raw. Upside in the bottom of the second or top of the third? i might make the move

Remember Brother, in the 3-4 the defensive ends and nose tackle sacrifice themselves so the linebackers can select their one gap and attack...
He has a torn labrum now, he looked great at the combine...... I take the chance if he's there..,.

If your making this move we definitely should drop down...... But then we would still need an olb for that side......

I was thinking about that when I typed it. Can you name a single player that's not a quarterback that had to end his career because of a torn labrum? Some players don't even require surgery to heal this ailment. Jordan is also a OLB, not a DE. The guy is going to be fine. If he winds up busting, it's not going to be the result of his shoulder.

You think Jordan is fast enough to play OLB (ie coverage assingments)?

Re: New Orleans Saints could drop several players from their draft boards

Jordan is excellent in space. thats one reason i have kept him on the board at OLB. his size and speed would do a long way to cover elite tE in the nFL if once again "if" he lives up to his upside .

Combo of Wilson and Jordon on the outside would probably give us the two fastest OLB in the NFL

i would draft the kid as an OLB not a DE.

I think FinSaint can tell you all about Jordan. He's plenty fast enough and played a lot of last year dropping back and covering wide receivers.

Jordan is very good in coverage. I really want Jordan or Ansah to be the pick in the first.Margus Hunt or Arthur Brown in the third.
