Oklahoma Sooners Football / Jordan Phillips Combine and Draft Overview

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Jordan Phillips time at OU was shortened by reoccurring back injuries and declaring for the NFL draft after his redshirt junior season. At time he was unblockable and then he would often disappear for games at a time. That being said he could in the right situation (3-4 defense) and with a run of good health become a dominant force in the NFL. Here is his combine overview and draft prediction.

HT: 6-5

WT: 329

ARM LENGTH: 34 3/4"

HANDS: 9 3/8"

40 YARD DASH: 5.17 seconds

BENCH PRESS: 28 reps

VERTICAL: 30"

BROAD JUMP: 8'9"

3 CONE DRILL: 7.88 seconds

20 YARD SHUTTLE: 4.68 seconds

Also check out this article from the Milwaukee Wisconsin Journal Sentinel for several scouts take on Jordan Phillips (you will need to scroll down a bit to find it).

Phillips will in my opinion be a huge boom or bust player. He has all the potential in the world to anchor a 3-4 defense at nose guard for a decade,  but he will need to continue to improve and put in the work necessary to see his NFL career live up to his potential. He would fit in nicely with the Browns at pick number 43.

DRAFT PREDICTIONS:

RICH: 2nd Round
