Miami Dolphins may not need a tight end, but Jordan is too good to pass on.
Round 2 Pick 54
University of Miami (FL) TE Brevin Jordan
A tight end in the second round? Utter blasphemy, or is it?
Jordan, a Las Vegas native and one of the next Miami tight ends to make it into the NFL is a unique prospect. While he is not an elite blocker that many would like, he is an elite pass catcher and route runner, quite possibly the best the Hurricanes pass catcher during his past two seasons in Coral Gables.
So why add him to a roster featuring Mike Gesicki, Adam Shaheen, and Durham Smythe? The Patriots glory years came with Robert Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez, no offense to Shaheen or Smythe, but Jordan is a cut above both of them as a pass catcher.
As we’ve seen the league evolve, tight ends have been a great part of that evolution as they have been forced to become pass first, rather than block first. Jordan fits that mold.
At 6’3” 245 Lbs, Jordan may be a bit undersized to play that Gronk or Travis Kelce role, but Gesicki can do that. Rather if he is able to bulk up a bit more, he could find himself playing at around the same speed as Geogre Kittle, and with that being said Jordan would be coming into the league as a better pass catcher.
The point of this mock is to make life easier for franchise quarterback Tagovailoa, and Jordan would be a smart and interesting draft choice that could make the offense more explosive.
