16 Jul Preseason Scouting Notes: Brevin Jordan, TE, Miami
Junior | 6’3″ 245 lbs | Las Vegas, Nevada | July 16, 2000
A dynamic athlete with a well-rounded game who struggled to find consistent production in a jumbled Miami Hurricanes offense
Son of former Falcon Darrell Jordan, Brevin Jordan attended his fathers’ high school alma mater, powerhouse Bishop Gorman, and came to Miami as a 4-star recruit. He played immediately as a true freshman and grew quickly into a Mackey Award Finalist by 2019. Jordan has been used frequently in the slot and in-line, though sometimes he appears outside the numbers. His versatility will be on full display as new OC Rhett Lashlee and HC Manny Diaz look to implement an up-tempo, spread offense.
– A real threat on short passes and screens who can beat defenders with power or evasiveness.
– Willing, strong and sticky blocker on run and pass plays
– Mismatch ability. Has the speed, agility and size that makes him too athletic for many LBs and too physically imposing for most safeties
– Able to find soft spots in opposing zones
– Not free of a drop here and there, but has reliable hands for the most part
– Does well to box out defenders to put himself in the best position for the ball
– Very good at picking the ball out from in front of him on in-breaking routes
– Fantastic work rate. Will try to finish every block and is always looking to get open or help pave a road for his teammates
– Has natural instincts and intelligence for the position
Areas to Improve:
– Route tree has been limited due to the less than advanced Miami offense
– Creates separation with athletic ability rather than with sharp, deceptive route running
– Rarely used in jump ball situations. The timing, verticality and contested catch traits of his ball skills are untested
– Lacks aggression at the catch point
– 2018 Thigh bruise vs BC (No games missed)
– 2018 Ankle injury vs VT (Missed second half of VT game and Pitt game)
– 2019 Left knee sprain suffered in spring practices (Missed portions of offseason and team activities)
– 2019 Left foot injury vs FSU (Missed final four games season)
With his athletic profile, outstanding versatility and natural feel for the position, Jordan is poised to shoot up draft boards should we get a 2020 season. There are questions left to be answered about his game, but as of now, he projects best as a receiving tight end with serious in-line potential and has a decent chance of being selected on Day 1. He’ll be able to step in as a low-end starter as a rookie as he learns the nuances of the position and adjusts to the NFL learning curve.
What to Watch in 2020:
Throughout his sophomore campaign, Jordan dealt with a lot of inconsistent QB play, and now Houston transfer D’Eriq King gets thrown into that mix. With the question marks at QB and a new offensive system in place, can Jordan adapt and still improve his production? Can Jordan expand his route tree and show teams what he hasn’t thus far? He’ll have to battle it out with Kyle Pitts and Pat Friermuth to prove worthy of a Day 1 selection. And to win that battle he will need to find consistency amidst an inconsistent environment.
