Dolphins selected Oregon DE/OLB Dion Jordan with the No. 3 overall pick.
The Dolphins traded up nine slots to draft Jordan, sending the Nos. 12 and 42 overall picks to the Raiders. Jordan (6--6, 248) was a versatile "Joker" in Chip Kelly's Ducks defenses, playing end and linebacker and covering slot receivers on passing downs. He tallied 29 career tackles for loss, 14.5 sacks, and four forced fumbles. Jones ran like a receiver at the Combine, clearing forty yards in 4.6-flat with a 1.57 ten-yard split and 10-foot-2 broad jump. He's a highly explosive, fluid athlete whom Rotoworld draft guru Josh Norris likens to former five-time Pro Bowler Julian Peterson. Jordan has also drawn comparisons to another former Miami sack artist, Jason Taylor. Look for the Dolphins to complete the trade for Chiefs LT Branden Albert Friday. Thu, Apr 25, 2013 08:37:00 PM
