KC Chiefs Tight End Prospects – Brevin Jordan (Miami)
While the previously mentioned Freiermuth is the classic looking tight end, Brevin Jordan of Miami may be the new look tight end. With good speed and a good athlete, Jordan is the push the tempo receiving target the Chiefs appear to greatly covet in their deep passing offense. A developing blocker, Jordan likely will never be a true shut down type in the blocking game, but he’s getting better.
Perhaps the biggest concern is that while his blocking is improving, it’s certainly not his strength and at times can REALLY struggle with that part of his game. The idea, at least early on, of asking him to do a lot of significant, important blocking is a bad one.
While he’s a good athlete and can stretch the field, drops can at times be an issue. Lastly, Jordan is listed at 6’3″, a height on the low end of what a team looks for in a tight end. If he measures any shorter, the idea of him being a true tight end is a concern.
The comparison to Giants tight end Evan Engram makes sense, and there is a little bit of that in his game. Jordan appears to be a more willing blocker and Engram’s route running and hands were more consistent at this stage. Jordan certainly fits the mold of a player that could provide depth at multiple positions and provide another good receiving target for the Chiefs.
