It may be a 'plan' to get himself out of the area where he'd be drafted by some of the worst teams in football right now..however unlikely that may be.

Don't think he'd want to cost himself millions following that "plan".

He's just avoiding a heads up comparison to the competition in LB drills and times so he doesn't cost himself draft spots with a poor showing.

He's hoping the tape will speak for itself.

Oh I completely agree with you there treat, you're 100% right. I wasn't serious about my 'suggestion', should've included a smiley face. Was just catering to all those conspiracy theorists out there Wink

just saw the following tweet from Matt Miller who runs nfl draft scout "Was told tonight that at least 10 teams have removed Jarvis Jones from their draft board due to spinal issue."

could work in our favor

Jones will not test well. He is stiff and slow but has great hand useage. Doesn't have Bruce Irvin type quickness. Tenaciou and smart and can defend the pass. I dont see him being an upgrade at OLB. Pass!

I know there are some Fans of Jones that loves him. Truthfully I'm not big on him at all. He just dont impress me. I dont see alot of splash plays from him for a top 10 to 15 player. Someone will take a shot of him though in the first 15 picks.

Then you must of not watched Jarvis Jones, because his playmaking ability reminds me of J. Harrison.

I don't like Jarvis Jones because of his age and the unknown surrounding his health.

If this Dion Jordan olb-de out of Oregon can fit into our scheme. I would love to slide him into Deebo's spot. I love this kid range and height.

Just what we need...another OLB that relies completely on athleticism and has absolutely no technque to his game.

His height, if anything, will hurt him as a 34 OLB.

He is a MUCH better athlete than football player.

We already have one OLB that cant beat an OT. We dont need another.

Hes a baller too 43 not just range and height. I seen enough vids on this kid to like him. NFL Coaches get paid Big Money to teach these kids NFL Technques. Its up to these kids if they are fast or slow learners. If you dont like him thats your business bruh. I like him and dont mind seeing him in a Steelers uniform

Jordan has the potential too add so many dimensions to a defense.

At his height with his combination of cover and rush abilities he could be an extremely unique weapon.

That said, I think he has a very high bust potential. All the same accolades he gets could have been and, IIRC were, heaped on Jarvis Moss coming out as well.

With that risk considered and Lebeau's propensity to bury rooks...I'd be pretty apprehensive if he was the pick. Hopeful, but apprehensive.
