2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Cameron Jordan, DE, California
In 2009 Jordan was helped by the presence of Tyson Alualu joining him on the line. Alualu went on to be drafted tenth overall in the 2010 draft. Thus, scouts wanted to see what Jordan could do as the main man on the d-line. Through eight games, Jordan has been the consistent force on defense and has recorded 7.5 tackles-for-loss and 4.0 sacks despite constantly being doubled teamed.
Right now Jordan is a borderline first round draft pick. In a 3-4 defense, ends do not usually put up great numbers, but Jordan is doing pretty good in that category. Yet, it will be during the workouts when he begins to separate himself from some other defensive ends. Much like Alualu a year ago, Jordan could see his stock rise very quickly after the NFL combine.
3/15 Update: Jordan was very impressive at the NFL combine and has worked his way into the top half of the first round. That was on the heels of an equally impressive week at the Senior Bowl. His versatility and ability to pick up different schemes has endeared him to teams that need help right away. And if you are picking somebody in the top of the first round, they better be able to help right away. The only thing keeping Jordan down some draft boards is his perceived low ceiling. As a four year starter, Jordan may not get any better than he is right now.
