RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Jordan is one of the league's top 3-4 ends, averaging 55 tackles and 9.5 sacks since 2012. Playing a 3-4 end spot usually limits a lineman's IDP upside, and Jordan isn't an exception to that rule, so 60 tackles and 10 sacks likely are his ceiling. But his high play count (999 in 2014) and playmaking history give him a high floor.

2014

Jordan showed significant improvement in both of the last two years, raising his sack total from one in 2011 to eight in 2012 and then to 12.5 last season. At 6-4, 287-pounds, Jordan is one of the league's elite 3-4 ends, possessing ideal anchor ability and improving disruption skills. He'll only be 25 in July, but he has two consective years with DL1-DL2 value in almost any scoring system. As the best front-seven player in the New Orleans defense, his play-count isn't at all up for grabs, so he'll get all the work he can handle in 2014.

2013

It will be interesting to see whether New Orleans' switch to the 3-4 harms Jordan's productivity, but given his game was always more about strength and anchoring ability than it was athleticism, he should hold up fine on the interior. Jordan excels as a lane-clogging end thanks to his motor and power, and he took a big step forward last year by more than doubling his tackle total from 31 to 67 and upping his sack count from one to eight. The 2011 first-round pick should keep his stock at the same level in 2013, but is more of a floor pick than a ceiling one – he posted five tackles or a sack in 11 of 16 games last year, though he only had one multi-sack game.

2012

After being selected in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft, Jordan's first season in New Orleans hardly went as expected, as he managed only one sack and 18 tackles despite appearing in every game last year. This year, Jordan will enter as an unquestioned starter along the defensive line and should improve on last year's numbers but he will have a lot to prove to show he was worthy of a first round pick a year ago.

2011

While Jordan isn’t guaranteed to start in New Orleans, it will be a surprise if he doesn't earn a starting spot within the first month of the season or so. The Saints' 2011 first-round draft pick, Jordan is a strong, high-motor talent who projects best on the strong side, where he should get plenty of opportunities to make plays against the run. Capable of lining up inside or out, it wouldn’t be shocking if Jordan plays as many snaps as anyone on the Saints defensive line this season.
