The Texans Success will Depend Heavily on Brevin Jordan
By Evan Mead
What Made Texans Tight End Brevin Jordan A Top Tight End in College?
Kyle Pitts, as I stated above, was the clear number one tight end that year. There was no real discussion to be had on that matter. However, there was quite the debate on rather on who was better: Pat Freiermuth or Brevin Jordan? For me, it was Brevin Jordan.
Looking back at my prospect profile for Jordan the one thing that always impressed me about his game was his ability to act as a receiver two for any given roster.
The league has transitioned a lot over the last couple decades with tight ends like Tony Gonzalez, Rob Gronkowski, Travis Kelce, Shannon Sharpe really acting more as a receiver than a tight end. It’s for that reason that I’ve begun to look at versatility and fit post-draft.
Some teams run a two tight end offense, some run a standard offense, but no matter what, every team has a tight end. Either a blocking one, or a receiving one- but there is always a tight end on the field for every team. And the Texans have a good one.
While at Miami, Jordan made so many plays that just caught my eye and I couldn’t help myself but make mental notes of them. Rather is was him making a catch in traffic, making a strong play to get extra yards, showing speed as he gets upfield, there is just so much to his game.
He was a great offensive player, and his strength, size, and offensive capabilities makes him such a great pickup for the Texans.
