Brevin Jordan Breakdown
If you need to know what kind of year Brevin Jordan might have, you need to go back and watch SMU tight end Kylen Granson. New offensive coordinator Rhett Lashlee comes to Coral Gables after leading a Mustangs offense that was one of the most explosive in the country last year, and Granson played a big role. Now he inherits a more talented roster, but also a future first round pick in Jordan. That marriage should produce more explosive results.
Lashlee’s coached a number of dynamic players, but Jordan has the tools to be his best yet. He possesses a great blend of tight end and wide receiver abilities, giving the Canes a unique threat for their offense to utilize. As long as his quarterback can get him the football, Jordan’s going to gash a defense. His transition from catching the ball to turning up field is natural and quick, giving him time to scan the field and make a move on any oncoming defender. He snatches passes out of the air with ease too, and it’s tough to knock the ball out of his hands once he’s touched the ball.
Two of the biggest concerns in Jordan’s game are his durability and blocking. He’s not a bad blocker by any means, but he can work on driving off the ball more (maybe even adding some weight to his frame too) to gain leverage on the guy he’s blocking and move them out of their gap. Staying healthy remains the biggest concern for the Canes tight end. Miami must find a way to keep him on the field for an entire season, as he’s battled injuries most of his career.
Brevin Jordan’s abilities as a pass catcher are elite, and he has the competitive mindset that will allow him to get better as a blocker. If he can stay healthy, Miami has one of the most dangerous offensive players in the country, and the combination of Jordan and Lashlee will elevate the Miami offense to new heights they haven’t seen in a while.
