Problem with playing Jordan at OLB is that he and Philip Wheeler would play the same position. Both are suited for the WILL position, where there is an opportunity to use speed to flow to the football uninterrupted from the back side. Asking Jordan or Wheeler to line up on the strong side and disrupt running plays downhill is foolish. Jordan should play DE and be subbed out or bumped back to an edge position in short yardage scenarios.

This is more what I am thinking. I see him in more of a joker role moving around and creating confusion.

When I say I have him at OLB, I mean that. He's a chess piece. Rush him opposite Wake, from the middle, on the same side as Wake, drop him into coverage, spy QB. He has the most unique skill set in the NFL on defense.

His position is Football Player

I don't care where he lines up, as long as he is effective

I think he will be used as a small forward for the Heat next season and will average about 6 points a game off the bench...

He played both 43 DE and 34 OLB in Oregon. Pretty much going to assume he'll do the same in the pros.
