Brevin Jordan Background
Position: Tight End
Size: 6-foot-3, 245 pounds
2020 stats: 38 receptions, 576 receiving yards, 7 touchdown catches, 15.2 yards per catch
In his three years at Miami, Jordan was a mismatch for opposing defenses. Now that he has played great at the college level, Jordan has declared for the 2021 NFL Draft.
Jordan went to powerhouse Bishop Gorman in Nevada for high school and chose to leave the state to go to Miami after being an All-American. After stepping foot on Miami’s campus, Jordan started producing right away. He finished his freshman season with 32 receptions for 287 yards and four touchdown catches. The Hurricanes went 7-6 that season, losing the Pinstripe Bowl to finish the season. As a sophomore, Jordan had 35 receptions for 495 yards and two touchdowns. Miami went 6-7 for the 2019 season and this time lost the Independence Bowl to end the season. Jordan improved again as a junior, totaling 38 receptions for 576 yards and seven touchdowns. His play helped Miami go 8-3, but the team lost the Cheez-It Bowl to end the year.
After playing well for the Hurricanes for three years, Jordan decided to enter the 2021 NFL Draft. He is a projected second to fourth round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Jordan has great movement abilities. He is very fast for a tight end, which makes him a matchup problem. His ability to get off of the line of scrimmage quickly with a quick first step gives him an advantage on his defender. After that, his speed allows him to separated and create big plays for his offense.
His ability to run after the catch is among the best in the class. After he catches the ball, he has good vision to find open running lanes. He generates good power and runs through a lot of tackles. His speed and agility make it so that he can weave in and out to pick up extra yards. He is able to run through defensive backs and elude linebackers.
He has great route-running ability for the position as well. Jordan is able to break in and out of cuts crisply, which helps him create separation. If a linebacker is tasked with guarding him, he can separate really well, making him a mismatch. At times, he shows great route-running and separation against safeties and corners as well. He was also able to find the soft spot in zone coverage a lot.
Jordan is undersized for a tight end. Even after putting on weight, he is just 6-foot-3 and 245 pounds. This will limit him in a few ways, as he won’t be very effective as an in-line tight end. He won’t have the strength of other players at his position nor the catch radius that they provide.
A lot of NFL tight ends can be counted on in the red zone, but Jordan doesn’t really fit that mold. Part of this is because of his size and catch radius. He scored plenty of touchdowns at Miami, but Jordan just doesn’t provide the same mismatch in the red zone that he does in other areas of the field.
His hands are solid in uncontested situations, but he does have some drops throughout his career. Most of these occur when it is a contested catch. He’ll need to work on his hands, especially because he is a player with a smaller than usual catch radius for his position.
Projected Draft Range: Second Round Pick-Fourth Round Pick
