Former Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland was enamored by Jordan in college and traded up to the No. 3 overall pick to get him. However, Miami’s coaching staff couldn’t figure out a good role for Jordan all year and used him as a rotational defensive end and special-teams player. There are plenty of coaches who would love to get their hands on a talent like Jordan, who also is relatively affordable thanks to the rookie wage scale. But I expect the Dolphins to try to make it work this year instead of giving up after one season.
I don't understand how all this happened. There had to have been a MAJOR communication error between Ireland and the coaching staff for him to take Jordan at number 3, and at the same time using a 2nd rounder to get there as well. None of this should have happened with a coach's say in it.
