ESPN's Sports Science look at new Miami Dolphins DE Dion Jordan

ESPN Sports Science took a look at Oregon defensive end Dion Jordan prior to the draft. He was picked with the third overall selection by the Miami Dolphins.

The Miami Dolphins selected Oregon defensive end Dion Jordan with the third overall pick in this weekend's 2013 NFL Draft. The move cost Miami their first pick of the second round, number 42 overall, to move up from the 12th pick to the Oakland Raiders' third pick.

The move confused most draft analysts, who knew for sure that Miami's trade up was to grab Oklahoma offensive tackle Lane Johnson. Despite Jordan being projected as a top five talent, and comparisons to Dolphins legend Jason Taylor, many of the pundits described the move as a "panic" by general manager Jeff Ireland, or a move that made no sense because Jordan does not fit Miami's system.

Before the draft, ESPN's Sports Science took a look at Jordan. Today, we will look at the video of Jordan demolishing a dummy quarterback. (No, it's not Mark Sanchez....yet.)
