Jon Gruden critical of Dion Jordan: He’s one-dimensional (Video)
Jon Gruden has been criticized for his easy-going commentary in the “Monday Night Football” booth, but he certainly showed his “Chucky” side when commenting on the Miami Dolphins’ selection of Dion Jordan at No. 3 overall in the NFL Draft on Thursday.
Gruden, who is generally positive in his commentary, expressed many reservations about the Dolphins’ pick.
“When I watch Dion Jordan play, I don’t see him play,” Gruden observed, noting that Oregon shifted defensive players in and out of their rotations like a hockey team working in shifts.
Gruden thinks Jordan has great athleticism, but “he’s narrow, he’s got a shoulder problem … lot of unknown.”
He also called Jordan a one-dimensional pass rusher who only tries to beat you to the outside with speed. He thinks that will be easy to defend in the NFL.
“My only concern with one-dimensional edge rushers is you can counter them if you just take the time and execute your protection plan.”
Hopefully you enjoyed the criticism from Gruden, because it’s very rare that you hear such harsh analysis from him.
