If the Jaguars elect not to take quarterback Geno Smith with the second-overall selection, most mock drafts would suggest that Oregon Ducks pass rusher Dion Jordan would be the logical choice for the team. After hosting Florida defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd on Monday, Jordan is scheduled to visit with the Jaguars on Tuesday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Jordan, 6-6, 248 pounds, is a versatile athlete that played everything from hand-down defensive lineman to slot cornerback with the Ducks after originally committing to the team as a skinny, 215-pound tight end. He packed on pounds through the years and by his junior season he was a defensive nightmare, racking up 13 tackles for loss.

In his senior season, he started the year with five sacks and seven tackles for loss in his first seven games before a torn labrum slowed him down. The torn labrum also slowed him down through the pre-draft process as he was unable to participate in the 2013 Senior Bowl.

In the Gus Bradley scheme, Jordan could be the a versatile athlete that plays in the LEO role at times, but also as a standing linebacker as well. In the latest mock draft from SB Nation's Dan Kadar, the Jaguars pass on Jordan and he falls to the Jets with the ninth selection.
