12/22/12: Jordan has 44 tackles, 10.5 tackles for a loss, three forced fumbles and five sacks so far in 2012.
His pass-rush opportunities have been hurt because he is often dropped back into pass coverage. Jordan plays well in space and would definitely fit best as a 3-4 outside linebacker in the NFL.
This is from steelers depot a highly respectable and knowledgeable site for the steelers
In the long run I feel most teams will view him more as a 4-3 defensive end than an outside linebacker prospect. In my tape study I have a hard time envisioning him playing the 3, 4 or the 5 technique in a 3-4 defense. In my opinion he would best fit a team that uses a wide-9 defensive front.
