Youre just reaching if you're going to blame philbin. Seriously is he suppose to keep them on a leash in his nackyard and babysit them? Give me a break
Yep, this one is all on Dion Jordan. I would rate him as a draft bust now as well. He's still workable, but he'll need babysitting. I'd put a mentor on him to keep him accountable. And, someone tell Coyle to put him at OLB. What a waste of talent on him and on Coyle.
1. DION JORDAN, Oregon (6-6, 248, 4.58, 1) - TE converted to LB in 2010. "He's very athletic, fast, rangy, explosive with a keen ability to bend and accelerate around the corner," Atlanta GM Thomas Dimitroff said. "He can be both a drop guy and a pass-rush threat. It makes him a consideration in the top five (picks)." Suffered third-degree burns over 40% of his body in 2007 when a vacuum cleaner he and his friends were using to siphon gas exploded. "The only negative is his body," one scout said. "He got burned. He went to Oregon because that was the only school that stuck with him. He's the whole package. All he has to do as a rusher is develop an inside move. It's all up the field now." Finished with 121 tackles (29 for loss), 14½ sacks and four "big" plays. "If he goes to a 3-4 team then, yeah, he's the best pass rusher in the draft," another scout said. "If someone takes him as a D-end you're doing a disservice to him by putting his hand down." From Chandler, Ariz. "Compares to Aldon Smith," a third scout said. "Neither one was that strong head-up on guys but as a rusher they're special. I was a little disappointed in his shed stuff against the run. A lot of him was just go get the quarterback. Good swim and club moves. Excellent spin move. Kind of average in drops."
