BIO: Junior college transfer that's been a starter the past two seasons. Totaled 42/3/10 as a senior after 46/3/7 the prior year.
POSITIVES: Talented cover corner coming off a very mediocre senior campaign. Smooth transitioning off the line, reads opponents eyes and turns back to make a play on the ball. Tracks the deep pass well, gets vertical and adjusts in mid air to defend the throw. Displays a sense of timing, field wherewithal and a nice break on the ball.
NEGATIVES: Lacks the top footwork and prefers to side-shuffle rather than backpedal. Not strong at the point in any aspect. Only average playing speed and showed a propensity last season to lose receivers down the field.
ANALYSIS: A corner that showed excellent skills in 2002, Jordan did not take his game to the next level last season and fell short of expectations. Still considered a top athlete with outstanding quickness, his prior play is cause for hope.
