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." Sep 30 - 10:39 PM

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.
