The Eagles may have another shot at former Oregon linebacker Dion Jordan. The Dolphins are open to trading last year's No. 3 pick, according to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora. Jordan was selected one spot before the Eagles took starting right tackle Lane Johnson with the fourth overall pick.
Jordan was used as a rotational end in Miami's 4-3 defense last season. At 6-foot-6 and 260 pounds with the speed and athleticism to cover tight ends, Jordan is likely a better fit in an odd front as an outside linebacker. After one year of using him in a minimal role, the Dolphins have apparently warmed up to that conclusion.
While he was a top three pick, he is coming off a season where he was outplayed by former third round pick Olivier Vernon, who was a better fit for the defense. He had just 26 tackles and two sacks in 330 defensive snaps. Jordan's trade value is unclear, but would likely fetch no less than a second round pick.
For the Eagles, this may be an excellent opportunity to get a guy that they were very interested in last season and solve some of their issues at outside linebacker. Jordan is no doubt a project, but has familiarity with Chip Kelly and his staff and is better fit for the Eagles defense.
