Brevin Jordan’s is a tape you’ll want to watch if you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan.

Throw out Kyle Pitts, and Brevin Jordan might be this class’s valedictorian at the tight end position. The debate may rage about whether or not he’s undersized and needs to add a little bulk to his frame though.

He’s six-foot-three and weighs in at about 245 pounds, which, by comparison, means he’s as tall as Josh Perkins but shorter than every other tight end Philly has on its roster. That also makes him one of the more slight tight ends on Philly’s roster if he were to be added, but this young man knows how to ball out.

In 27 games with the Miami Hurricanes aka The U, Jordan snagged 105 receptions for 1,358 yards. That’s a 12.9 yards-per-reception average. He’s also reached the end zone 13 times. He also earned First-team All-ACC honors in 2019 and Second-team All-ACC honors in both 2018 and 2020. He’s a big-play waiting to happen.

There’s no guarantee that Philly will take a tight end early in the draft process. Most would rather them address the wide receiver and cornerback positions, but if they don’t take Kyle Pitts in Round 1 or Brevin Jordan shortly thereafter (the latter might be a guy whose name is called in Round 2), you have to figure they’re more seriously considering one of these other guys on this list. None of us know though, so we’ll have to wait and see what happens.
