2021 NFL Draft Profile: TE Brevin Jordan

2021 NFL Draft Profile: TE Brevin Jordan

Matthew Suero
Brevin Jordan arrived at Miami as the second highest rated commit in a top 10 class nationally, the best Miami had signed in about a decade. Jordan will dip his toes into the NFL waters following three years at Miami and after recording over 1,300 yards and 13 touchdowns on 105 catches during his time in college. Jordan arrived onto the scene at Miami with a game-winning touchdown vs Florida State his freshman year. He also finished his Miami career with possibly his best game as a college athlete, totaling 8 catches for 96 yards and two touchdowns while adding a 15-yard completion during UM’s bowl game vs. Oklahoma State in 2020. One knock on Jordan is his durability, as he has played in just 26 games over 3 years and never played in double-digit games in a single season.


Pre-Draft Measurables

Height: 6’3”

Weight: 247 pounds

Arms: 32 7/8”

Hands: 9 3/4”


Strengths

Versatility

Jordan lined up just about everywhere for Miami during his college career. From an in-line tight end, to a slot receiver, to an H-back, and even playing on the boundary at times, there is not much Jordan did not do over the past three years. Jordan also showed both high-level blocking ability and the ability to be a matchup issue in the passing game.


Playmaking

Jordan’s highlight tape includes him leaping over defenders, turning screen passes into big gains, and even taking the top off of a defense. We even saw Miami attempt to get him the ball on jet sweeps during his college career. Put simply, Jordan is a playmaker and a game-changer.


Weaknesses

Durability

As mentioned above, the biggest question mark on Jordan is the ability to stay healthy. Jordan missed games with injury each of the three seasons that he was at Miami. Teams are making a multi-year investment when they draft a player and whether the concerns are justified or not, they are in the minds of coaches and GM’s.


Undersized

Standing at 6’3’’, Jordan does not have the same size and stature of some of the top tight ends both in this draft class and currently in the league. Whoever drafts Jordan will need to have a more specific role carved out for him since he does not match the prototypical tight end in an NFL offense the way that others do.


Draft Projection: 4th Round

Jordan is a talented player and will be an asset to whichever team drafts him, but he will not be the first-round pick and guaranteed superstar that some predicted he would be coming out of high school. The injury concerns along with the fact that he does not fit the ideal mold of an NFL tight end will likely drop him into day three, but he won't be waiting long once Saturday rolls around.

ymmv on Tony Pauline...he's not for me, but he had this to say in his column today.

Teams have a mixed bag of grades and evaluations for tight end prospects​

(10:45 AM ET) After the top two players, there could be some wild swings on tight end. Some teams have a late Day 3 grade on Brevin Jordan of Miami, as he’s not come across well in interviews, and many feel he’ll always be more athlete than football player.

Conversely, Tre’ McKitty has a lot of upward momentum, and teams like him a lot more than those on the outside. McKitty could end up in the third round. John Bates is another likely to be selected higher than most presently predict.
 
Jordan's injuries are what did him in. But he puts fear into the eyes of opposing teams, which is the very definition of a difference maker. Someone should take a chance on him in Rd 3. Whoever takes McKitty above Jordan, if that were to actually happen, will look like a fool over time.

I don't think he puts "fear" into anyone eyes.
He was an above average/ elite TE at the college level her eat Miami, but at the NFL, there are LBs just as big and fast as him, so I don't think that's the case.
He's going to a great Hback find, he's fit in super well at a place like Seattle, where their TEs are meh and he can come out of the backfield, block and go into the slot, no more flexed out wide in the NFL though!
 
Im curious to what front offices mean when they say a player didn’t interview well... do you mean they didnt kiss your ass and stroke your ego?

to my knowledge brevin wasn’t a head case, no off the field stuff, and seemed like a intelligent respectful dude.

what could it be? I doubt its a lack of football knowledge....

Yeah, this surprised me. NFL scouts/front office people seem like pieces of **** a lot of the times though.
 
Was anyone else hella surprised to see him at 250 pounds?

And he still ran well!

Edit: 247 pounds. Same shyt.

I see you think his skillset will translate well to the pros. So we disagree only mildly. I'm higher on him that most. We'll see how thinks play out.

I couldn't tell you what his football knowledge is, but they usually have you look at plays and diagnose them.

Kiss of death is short answers. Seems you're in a rush just to get out of there, aren't comfortable, etc.

They will also ask some off the wall questions intended to throw you off their game. If you have some checkered past, they'll really get on you to see if they can break your composure.

It's basically a personality test to see how dedicated you are and passionate as well as coachable.
 
I still don't think he gets past through the third round without getting drafted. There is a lot to like with him, even if he didn't test so well. Someone that runs 2 TE sets and needs a move TE....those teams that missed out on Jonnu Smith or teams that need that pass catching option...he's going to be high on their list and this year's TE class is overall cheeks, which is why you see backups like Tommy Tremble get real looks in Day 2 because he can block real well and there are very few players that show athleticism and some future receiving. Falcons, Tennessee, Jacksonville among some other teams that employ similar sets in their offense I think would still value him despite the flaws. Irv Smith did go at the very end of Round 2 and that has been one of a few comps for him as well as Jonnu and both of those guys were gone before pick 100.
 
Ill be shocked if hes not taken by round 3. Hes a play maker and teams are looking for those type of guys. Athletic tight ends with speed and hands and play making ability are not falling off trees.

LMAO at anyone drafted McKitty over Jordan. Jordan won’t last past round 3.
 
I truly feel bad for scouts that would rate McTitty over Jordan. Think Brevin has more catches in one game than McTitty has in a season.
 
My Cowboys could use him in the 3rd.

What team did he go to?
 
Not thinking that’s a great fit with the Texans, unless Watson somehow remains there in Houston at QB. If he doesn’t the 1yr rental for them is going to be difficult on Jordan to do much in Year #1 until they can get a QB that can utilize Brevin’s talent.
