Brevin Jordan TE Maimi

Sounds like we've been in contact with him.

He's 6-3 245lbs and a pretty damn good athlete. He can be moved around all over the place. Willing blocker and solid route runner.

Here's his draft profile

PROSPECT SUMMARY - BREVIN JORDAN

Miami tight end Brevin Jordan is a dynamic weapon that grew incrementally each season in college and 2020 revealed a player that is much more prepared to claim a meaningful role in the NFL. The Canes used Jordan all over the formation including in-line, from the slot, and out of the backfield as both a receiver and blocker and he should do the same at the next level. As a receiver, Jordan brings an exciting blend of size, athleticism, and ball skills that make him dangerous at all levels of the field. He's a monster after the catch and challenging the seam. While his route tree expanded in 2020, there is still room to grow in terms of timing and technique as a route-runner. Jordan is a highly competitive blocker that is mostly effective, but adding more functional strength and technique to help him stay square to blocks will be important to contribute positively as a blocker in the NFL. Jordan projects as an F tight end in the NFL that has a chance to be a dangerous weapon if used correctly.

Ideal Role: Starting tight end that is used in a variety of alignments as a receiver and blocker that receives targets at all levels of the field.

Scheme Fit: F tight end.

FILM EVALUATION
Written by Joe Marino

Games watched: Florida (2019), Pittsburgh (2019), Virginia Tech (2019), Georgia Tech (2019), UAB (2020), Louisville (2020), Florida State (2020), North Carolina (2020), Duke (2020)

Best Game Studied: North Carolina (2020)

Worst Game Studied: Florida (2019)

Hands: Jordan has soft and reliable hands. There are plenty of reps where he extends for the football and it secures it firmly outside of his frame and through contact. He is not immune to drops but they appear to be more due to concentration and being too eager to work after the catch.

Route Running: In 2019, Jordan ran an extremely limited route tree which rarely asked him to do anything other than run to space. His 2020 game tape revealed much more variety with routes. Jordan is a fluid, explosive, and physical route-runner that is difficult to cover. He learned to become more deceptive in and out of breaks while still understanding how to adjust on the fly against zone coverage. There is still room for growth as a route-runner in terms of timing and how he sets up his route stems to create leverage quicker.

Versatility: Jordan can and has aligned all over the formation in college including in-line, flexed, and in the backfield. He's a dynamic receiving threat to all levels of the field. Jordan is a willing and competitive blocker in both the run and pass fame from a variety of alignments.

Competitive Toughness: There's no doubt Jordan is a competitor and brings the fight on every snap. While he has room to get stronger and improve his technique, Jordan is always a more than willing blocker. He battles through contact as a route-runner and is physical with the ball in his hands.

Ball Skills: Jordan illustrates good tracking skills down the field and he can be trusted by the quarterback for throws into space that require him to adjust. He can finish outside his frame and make late adjustments to the football with good body control. He is adequate in contested situations but not dominant at this point.

Blocking Skills: Jordan is a competitive and willing blocker that competes throughout every rep. With that said, he has some significant lowlights blocking, mostly due to wide hands and falling off contact because he fails to remain square to his opponent—but it's never an effort issue. He's a versatile blocker that should become more consistent at the next level with technical development and more functional strength.

Football IQ: Jordan has good spatial awareness and makes good adjustments as a route-runner against zone coverage. There was much more on his plate in 2020 compared to previous seasons and he responded favorable. I do believe there is room for him to get better with timing as a route-runner and processing as a blocker.

RAC Ability: Jordan is a monster after the catch with his explosiveness, physicality, and decisiveness. He is exceptional at securing the catch and then angling his frame to make the first guy miss and get up the field. His skill set demands touches that give him chances to create for himself.

Pass Protection: Jordan gets his work done in pass protection but must become more deliberate about staying square to blocks to be effective at the next level. There were some instances where it appeared there were communication issues in pass protection and assignments were blown. Jordan's skill set is best utilized as a receiver but he can be serviceable in pass protection.

Big-Play Ability: Jordan averaged nearly 15 yards per reception over the last two seasons while averaging more than nine yards after the catch per reception. He's special with the ball in his hands and can turn short completions into large chunks of yards. He's dynamic down the field and working the seam with his size, speed, and ball skills.

Prospect Comparison: Jonnu Smith (2017 NFL Draft, Tennessee Titans)

I like the Jonnu Smith comparison, although I think Brevin is a little bit quicker.

He's a FA now we will see...I thought he had a solid yr.

Jordan projected as a 4th rounder? Interesting take by NinersNation. I think he goes 2nd round. He is definitely a very good fit for what we do. Love his physical style of play in blocking and RAC.

To me he is TE#2 in this class. Obviously behind Pitts but ahead of Freiermuth.

Had him on my fantasy team lol. I was so disappointed in the inconsistency, but I know it wasn't all him.
