Losing out on Drew Brees sucked.  But the hype surrounding Dion Jordan was astronomical. This was a kid that was going to be paired with Jason Taylor.  The Dolphins book ends were set for the next five years.  Well that was the vision, what eventually happened was a nightmare.  To call his first year a disappointment would be an understatement.  Dion suited up for all 16 games, but only managed 26 tackles and 2 sacks.  No one knew why, it could have been coaching or conditioning or something.  The premise is that his next year with a full off season conditioning schedule will bring out the 3rd overall selection to prime time.  Then, Jordan was suspended for 4 games.  Then an additional two games were added. He never suited up that season.  Which then followed by a full year long  suspension.

The hype surrounding this young promising player was now gone and the fans started turning on him, which eventually led to his release.  Drafting a player in the top 3 basically means you are drafting a player that you look to build a team for.  The Dolphins paid a heavy price in the acquisition of Dion Jordan and basically threw away a first and second round selection.
