Cleveland-native Jordan White, who the Jets picked in the seventh round of the 2012 draft, is having a strong training camp.
“I saw today he had a couple of deep balls with unbelievable coverage,” Rex Ryan said about the wide receiver out of Western Michigan. “One thing you can’t defend in this league is a perfectly thrown ball. We had a few of those today and Jordan White made a couple of those catches. He has great hands and concentration and he’ll fight for contested balls. We know he can catch the football. You don’t have 140 catches (in your senior season) by accident.
“I think he’s doing well. I think he’s making improvements. On some of his routes today, he ran the exact route he made a mistake on in the first preseason game. It looked like he did a great job of it and picked up a first down. I’m happy with the way he’s practicing and competing.” Via the Jets Confidential (Dan Leberfeld)
I don’t take these pictures, I just make them look better!
I think Jordan not only makes this team, he’s going to contribute from day one. Do NOT be surprised if he passed Kerley on the depth chart as the slot receiver. I also expect him to get in the special teams action.
