Strong Points: Three-year starter (played guard in 2016-17). Natural size, strength and power. Still very young (will be a 21-year-old rookie). Very long arms. Snaps, steps and gets out to block. Uses size and strength to create movement. Effective with the blind snap. Reaches second level with ease. Strong in pass pro -- alert, powerful punch, mirrors and anchors.
Weak Points: Jordan bends, but he can get tall at times. Occasionally overextends and falls off block. Inconsistent in keeping good position. Must tighten up his body a bit.
The Way We See It: An immediate starter at right guard when he first enrolled at Ohio State, Jordan started every game there from 2016-17 before moving last season to center, where he made all the line calls. Jordan is tall for a center but plays with bend and can get low. He has good natural strength but not real explosive yet. He is very young for an offensive lineman and still has a ways to go before he reaches total physical maturity -- he will get bigger and stronger. Then, there's no telling how good Jordan can be. Most rookie O-lineman are 23; two years older than Jordan. Match him with a good line coach and he can become a dominant player at guard or center. It's all in front of Jordan. A comparison is Bears OG-C James Daniels, selected 39th overall from Iowa last year. Both players are young, but Jordan is bigger and more talented.
