A talented tight end prospect may be making his way to the New England Patriots. Head coach Bill Belichick has been watching players closely, and he has a few ideas at the moment.
The team selected two players in the 2020 NFL draft, but both players failed to replace Rob Gronkowski. New England relied on dual weapons throughout the years and their recent picks didn’t provide the same dominance. Belichick missed the playoffs in 2020, and he is already planning his next move. The Patriots head coach won’t wait for Devin Asiasi and Dalton Keene to reach their full potential. According to recent reports, the Patriots have been eyeing a tight end prospect.
Brevin Jordan is more athletic than most tight end prospects in the 2021 NFL Draft. Justin Melo from the Draft Network reported that New England is one of the several teams Jordan has been “consistently” communicating with.
Talented tight end prospect fits well in Bill Belichick’s Patriots
Jordan may join the Patriots at the right moment.
Chris Pflum from Big Blue View sees the tight end as a dangerous pass-catching prospect. He can line up all over the football field. He measures at 6’3’’, 240 pounds, and still develops his blocking techniques.
“Miami’s Brevin Jordan projects best as a moveable offensive weapon in a 12-personnel offense that makes use of passing concepts to stress coverages. Though he is listed at tight end, he should be a piece that is lined up across the offensive formation to create and exploit mismatches with defensive personnel. Jordan is too big for most defensive backs to deal with easily, while at the same time too athletic for most linebackers. He also brings some upside as a blocker in pass protection and run blocking, though Miami frequently tried to scheme him as part of a double-team when he was lined up at tight end to minimize his exposure against defensive linemen.
“Jordan still has work to do polishing up his technique as both a blocker and as a receiver. He has a reasonably broad route tree, and has some savvy in how he runs his routes. Jordan shows an understanding of pressing his stems vertically as well as using body language to hide his intentions. Likewise, teams will need to work with Jordan to improve his hand usage and play with more consistent leverage when blocking. He will likely never be a punishing people-mover of a blocking tight end, but he can continue to improve his effectiveness.”
