The Miami Dolphins didn't have to give up much to trade up from the No. 12 overall pick to No. 3, giving up the 42nd pick to swing the deal. What they get in return, though, is defensive end Dion Jordan, who they hope is the pass-rushing presence they lack opposite Cameron Wake.
Jordan has the potential to be an elite pass-rusher; he is bursting with athleticism, having run a 4.6-second 40-yard dash and a 4.35-second three-cone drill at the combine (via NFL.com).
Jordan's numbers may not suggest he is a standout pass-rusher, with just 12.5 sacks over the past two years combined, but he wasn't used only as a pass-rusher at Oregon. He was counted on to handle several other roles, including in coverage on tight ends and even in the slot on receivers on occasion.
With all that versatility, the question is whether he can play with his hand in the dirt on a consistent basis in a 4-3 front with the Dolphins. He did so with the Ducks, but was primarily used as an outside linebacker in a 3-4 front.
