The picture above was the extent of Dion Jordan's work at rookie camp.
Jordan primarily participated in team drills, however the shoulder surgery he underwent in February still kept him out of some team drills (per James Walker of ESPN.com).
So what do we know about Jordan? Practically the same thing we knew about him prior to the draft, unlike the other rookies save for Dallas Thomas, who all participated in each drill and scrimmage.
But Jordan did look physically impressive, comparable to Jason Taylor according to the Sun-Sentinel's Omar Kelly.
It will be interesting to see Jordan as we go through training camp and the preseason, as that is the estimated time table we should expect Jordan to be ready by.
Also of note, according to the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero, Jordan will play defensive end once healthy during training camp, as Salguero stated:
Dion Jordan will be a defensive end. If he is one of the team's best two complete ends, he'll start and play three downs. If he's more a pass-rusher early on while he learns the game, he'll play mostly on passing downs until he figures out his assignments and holding the edge of the defense on run plays and so forth.
Well then, that should answer the question, even though that would be a major waste if that's all Jordan, with his talent and athleticism, play:
Hopefully the Dolphins move him around. Hopefully the Dolphins let him stand up if he's more comfortable doing that than rushing from a three-point or four-point stance. But, ultimately, rushing the passer is the thing.
I hope so too, Mando, and so do Dolphins fans everywhere. Not just because of Jordan's talents, but because of the abundance of talent on the defensive line.
