NFL draft prospect profile: Brevin Jordan's weaknesses

Jordan does have some weaknesses, but those can be easily remedied with practice and good coaching. He is a solid route runner and has improved that aspect of his game since his 2019 college football campaign, but it isn't elite. He has also lacked consistency in catching difficult passes.

The Miami Hurricanes product needs to work more on his release against the press. He does have a solid two-step, but his footwork and hand use coordination could use some work.

Jordan makes for a reliable second tight end. He is multifaceted and can exploit mismatches against linebackers in his rookie season. If he continues his development, he should be an effective and reliable weapon under the right offensive coordinator and in the right system.
