- Draft profile: Dion Jordan, Oregon
The second in a series highlighting players who could be selected by the Jets with the No. 9 overall pick in the April 25 draft:
Player: Dion Jordan, OLB, Oregon
Height/weight: 6-foot-6, 248 pounds

Draft projection: Second to ninth overall.
Scouting report: If Rex Ryan could build the ideal pass rusher, he’d probably make him a lot like Jordan. He has terrific size, with room to add weight, and he can flat out rush the quarterback.
