The Saints (No. 24 overall pick) and Falcons (No. 27) are looking for help on the defensive line, and Jordan, the son of ex-Minnesota Vikings tight end Steve Jordan, fits that need. At 6-foot-4 and 287 pounds, he can play left end or shift inside to tackle if needed.
Many people peg Jordan as a first-round pick in the April 28-30 NFL draft, but he admits he needs to improve to play in the pros.
"It's about refinements of technique," Jordan said last month. "In the run game, working on my ability to keep my eyes up. When I don't, I lock out, my head goes down and linemen can pop my arms, my arms fall, my head follows â it's not a good look. From a pass-rush standpoint, I need to refine some of my techniques to make it more crisp."
