Jordan recorded 89 tackles in his senior season. Also contributing not only on defense, but as a returner. He placed 7th overall in kick returns for the Big Ten.
When I asked about the potential to compete for a returner position, his answer was quite "humble":
"I would love to have the opportunity to compete as a returner. As a defensive player I don't get to have the ball in my hands as much as I'd like, so any time I can I try to make the most of it."
Jordan only started one season at Strong Safety in his time at Iowa. I asked if the Redskins had told him what their plans were as far as position:
"they just said that I'll be playing safety and how I go out and compete is up to me."
Although he isn't familiar with the Redskins secondary woes of the past couple years, he seems motivated to go out and compete for any position that gets him on the field:
"I'm not really that familiar with it. It doesn't matter that much because either way I have to come in and work. I'll contribute on special teams, sub packages, wherever necessary really."
