Oklahoma redshirt sophomore DT Jordan Phillips made his debut at No. 11 on Todd McShay's Big Board.
Phillips wasn't talked about as much as other elite prospects this season because, as a redshirt sophomore coming off an injury-plagued campaign, analysts didn't enter the year believing he'd leap to the NFL. A big 2014 changed that and Phillips declared for the draft just prior to the New Year. "There just aren't that many humans as big as Phillips who can move the way he does," McShay wrote. "His physical and athletic traits are reminiscent of Vince Wilfork. He was inconsistent this season and doesn't have a ton of experience (he's just a redshirt sophomore), but the raw tools to be an impact defender are all there." The 6-foot-6, 324-pounder has the ability to collapse pockets and get into the backfield consistently. Jan 18 - 9:27 PM

Oklahoma redshirt sophomore DT Jordan Phillips has declared for the 2015 NFL Draft.

From a production standpoint, Phillips recorded two sacks and seven tackles for loss this season. Phillips is listed at a monstrous 6'6/334 lbs and will most likely play a two gapping role up front for odd man fronts. He did undergo back surgery in 2013.

ESPN's Mel Kiper sees Oklahoma redshirt sophomore DT Jordan Phillips as a potential draft riser during the post-season process if he decides to leave early.

The 6-foot-6, 324-pounder has the ability to collapse pockets and get into the backfield consistently. "If he jumps, you could see him rise during the process because he's such a freak athlete and has the huge frame," Kiper wrote. The analyst currently ranks Phillips as the No. 5 defensive tackle in the class. Phillips isn't just a clogger due to his nice blend of quickness and agility.

Oklahoma sophomore DT Jordan Phillips is a "massive two-gap defensive tackle that has caught our eye," writes ESPN Insider's Steve Muench and Kevin Weidl.

Phillips suffered a season-ending back injury last year but has showed no ill-effects in 2014, outside of perhaps being allocated more rest by the coaching staff. The 6-foot-6, 324-pounder has the ability to collapse pockets and get into the backfield consistently. "He is not just a space-eater, either, as Phillips has above-average quickness and agility for his size, providing him adequate range against the run and the ability to generate pressure on the interior," ESPN's pair of analysts wrote. "Phillips caught our eye initially last fall before having season-ending back surgery after the fourth game. It appears he has fully recovered and is a playing at a high level right now. Phillips' size, power and athleticism combination is exactly what the NFL covets at that position."

Oklahoma sophomore DT Jordan Phillips "possesses outstanding athleticism for a man who is 6-6 and 334 pounds," writes ESPN's Todd McShay.

Phillips suffered a season-ending back injury last October, so his first order of business in 2014 was proving his health. He's done so, but has also once again blown away evaluators with his ample physical gifts. "Phillips possesses outstanding athleticism for a man who is 6-6 and 334 pounds, and not only can he occupy blockers, but he is able to shed blocks and pursue and make plays," McShay wrote. NFL.com reported earlier this month that Phillips was gaining steam in the scouting community.

Oklahoma sophomore DT Jordan Phillips is "already generating buzz within the scouting community," after his return from a back injury, according to NFL.com.

Phillips suffered a season-ending back injury in early October, but he wreaked havoc in the four games before that. "He's a massive presence on the interior at 6-foot-6, 334 pounds and can eat up blocks to let linebackers run free. He creates pressure up the middle vs. the pass, too," Daniel Jeremiah, Bucky Brooks and Charles Davis wrote. "An NFC scout said he expects Phillips to be a driving force behind the success of the Oklahoma defense this season." The prospect from Towanda, Kan., has the ability to collapse pockets and get into the backfield consistently. You can expect the Sooners to ramp up his playing time now that they're set to embark on Big 12 play.
