I have to say that Dion Jordan was mine as well. Normally when it comes to rookies, I don't believe the hype and will look at a draft pick's performance at college. Even though there was a lot of hype with Dion Jordan, I never foresaw that he would miss so many games with injury and drug issues. I thought we had a good one, but we ended up having the biggest draft bust in our history.

Don't even get me talking about Saban's pick of Jason Allen at #16.

Mine is pretty simple. I was so excited when the Dolphins traded up to select Dion Jordan. He was supposed to be the next Cameron Wake, the next pass rush specialist for the Dolphins. The next great defensive end for the Dolphins. Chris Early and I were on a live broadcast during the 2013 NFL Draft, and I saw the pick just before he did, yelling Jordan’s name when the selection was made. There was no way the Dolphins could miss on that pick. They were aggressive and went to get the player they wanted. It was a perfect move by the team.

Jordan “played” two years for the Dolphins, then missed two more seasons due to suspension and injury. This great pass rusher tallied 46 tackles and three sacks with Miami, appearing in 26 games, with just one start. Basically, he was a bust from just about the moment he put on a Dolphins jersey.

Jordan made a comeback with the Seattle Seahawks last year, recording 18 tackles and four sacks - yes, he surpassed his entire career total with Miami - playing in just five games. Of course, he also just had knee surgery that is expected to hold him out until sometime during the preseason, because that makes total sense.

Wow, I could not have been more wrong about what Jordan would be for the Dolphins. I still just shake my head at what I thought he was going to be compared to what he became. So very, very wrong.
