A lot of post Combine mocks have Cam Jordan slipping and us picking Ryan Kerrigan and New England pouncing on Jordan with glee. Is it just me or isn't Cam Jordan a better player/pick fullstop?
The rationale for the raft of Ryan love is Kerrigan is a Gene Smith player to a tee.Four-year student, three-year-starter, team captain, high character kid, could run for Governor in a decade or so...etc.
However, Jordan is no slouch as a person. He's a three-year starter. Team captain. Dad was a decade in the league as a TE. No character concerns I know about. Great Senior Bowl.
Don't get me wrong. I'm much higher on Kerrigan since the Combine where he made up a lot of ground on Jordan but to me Jordan is an elite talent and athlete while Kerrigan is a tryer. Kerrigan put on 12lb and carried it well but may be maxed out. Jordan still has a natural 20lb advantage and arm length.
While Kerrigan's blue-collar work ethic is admirable and I believe will make him a longterm starter somewhere. I have heard him compared to Chris Long but mentally I see a lot of Kampman in him. However I'd rather have a Freeney or Peppers than either of them.
Cameron Jordan: California-6ft4in- 287lb- 4.71secs- Bench 25-Vert 31- Arms-35in
Ryan Kerrigan: Purdue-6ft4in-267lb-4.67secs-Bench31-Vert31-Arms-33.3/8in
What do you guys think? I'd take Jordan in a heartbeat as I have always have been high on him.
If both available Cam Jordan or Ryan Kerrigan? Or someone else entirely?
