There could be plenty of teams looking for a freak athlete with terrific hands in the 2021 NFL Draft, and one just became available with Miami Hurricanes tight end Brevin Jordan announcing today he’s off to the NFL after three seasons in Coral Gables.

The 6’3, 245-pound prospect from legendary Bishop Gorman High School in Las Vegas was a Mackey Award semifinalist this season before injury. In just eight games at The U this season he had 38 catches for and seven touchdowns. He also completed a 15-yard pass.

Jordan missed three games due to injury after a tough tackle against the Clemson Tigers on October 10th. He returned for the final three games of the season against Duke, North Carolina, and Oklahoma state, averaging six catches and 103.2 yards per outing in those contests.

Jordan has size, speed, strength, and terrific hands and catch radius. The biggest question is his ability to stay healthy, as he only played in 26 games across three seasons in The 305. But if he can stay on the field, he’s likely to make a big impact in the NFL.
