Biography: Junior college transfer awarded all-conference honors the past two seasons. Senior totals included 78 receptions/1089 yards/12 TDs after posting a conference-leading 96/1109/4 the prior year.
Positives: Sure-handed pass catcher with marginal speed for the next level. Displays good awareness, remains focused and effectively makes the reception in stride. Comes back to the ball out of breaks, gets vertical and extends or exposes himself to the big hit in order to come away with the catch. Makes difficult catches in the middle of the crowd. Sells routes, extends his hands and offers the quarterback a big target. Plays with good balance and body control. Consistently catches the ball with his hands. Gets after blocking assignments.
Negatives: Lacks a burst and cannot get downfield separation. Looks like an average athlete. Production numbers benefited from three- and four-receiver sets used at Bowling Green.
Analysis: Jorden was very productive the past two seasons and offers reliable hands. His lack of quickness and speed limits his next level upside, but his pass-catching skills could help him catch on as a fifth receiver in a timing offense.
