Report: Dion Jordan to visit with Jets

Oregon linebacker Dion Jordan is spending time with college head coach Chip Kelly and the Eagles on Thursday and then he’ll be heading on to another visit later on Thursday.

As you’d imagine, he won’t be moving too far for his next meeting. Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that Jordan will make the short jaunt to Jets headquarters for a visit with the team currently slated to select ninth in the first round of the draft. Jordan is expected to visit with the Jets through Friday.

If the Jets remain in that spot, there wouldn’t seem to be much chance that Jordan falls to them. He’s drawing interest from several teams at the very top of the draft and, unless his offseason shoulder surgery puts teams off, the edge rusher seems likely to be off the board before the New York crowd would have a chance to respond to the Jets selecting him with the ninth overall pick.

Brian Costello of the New York Post also reports that the team is expected to meet with SMU defensive end Margus Hunt, an Estonian native who came to football relatively late and has impressed scouts with his athletic ability. He hasn’t been discussed as a potential pick that high in the draft, but visits aren’t just about first rounders and the Jets need to find help anywhere they can get it.

    The Jets are not afraid to trade up in the draft when they see a player they really want, just ask Mark Sanchez.

    If Dion goes to the Jets, his career will end faster than his 40 time.

    Would be a great pick for the Jets which is why I think they will pick someone else.

    Jets won’t stay at 9. more than likely they will trade down. this draft has plenty rushers to chose from. Unless they go up to draft Geno Smith they will go down a few slots. I won’t be surprised if they do get Smith I mean, there isn’t much options this year nor next year in draft and FA.

    Do you have any other form of recreation in life besides your obsession with the Jets and self-pleasing yourself?

    Please tell us that you just get a kick out of seeing a post of yours rather than showing off your thinking ability.
