Oregon DL Dion Jordan Selected No. 3 By The Miami Dolphins In the NFL Draft

Experts who picked Dion Jordan to go high in the NFL draft were absolutely correct.

The Miami Dolphins made a trade with the Oakland Raiders, trading up to select DL/LB Dion Jordan with the No. 3 pick in the NFL draft. Jordan will likely be a pass rushing outline linebacker in Miami's 3-4 scheme.

Many Oregon fans were surprised to see that Jordan would go so early, as, while he was good, he wasn't exactly dominant at Oregon. But he has only been playing on the defensive side of the ball for a couple of years, having come to Oregon as a wideout, and has great size at 6'6", and freaky athleticism. There is much room for improvement considering his newness at the position, and this is no doubt a potential pick for Miami, with a possibility to bust, but a big-time possibility to boom into a dominant pass rusher.

Best of luck in Miami, Dion.
