Just re-confirmed with another that what @Ryan_Riddle said yesterday is 100% correct: the #Chiefs are indeed leaning Dion Jordan at #1.
Personally I think Dion is going to be a good NFL player but I think this is a case of teams falling in love with athletecism over production. I'd be weary if my team were going to draft him anywhere in the top 10, not to mention #1. I'm also a little worried that he is going to have Walter Thurmond syndrome. The dude always seems to be banged up.
Great kid though who works his ass off. Would be pretty cool to see a Duck as the #1 pick.
“The day before I was actually playing one of the best games I had in my high school career,” Jordan says. “To come from being on the field one night and then waking up in a hospital bed, that was a reality check. …
“At first, I was really scared. I was like, ‘Wow.’ I was just shocked that it happened to me. Because you never expect something like that to happen.”
Time brings perspective. Jordan had a month in a burn unit, and another one-and-a-half weeks of in-patient rehabilitation to piece some things together.
“I was looking around while I was in the hospital,” he says. “I noticed there were a lot of people, and I was more fortunate than lot of their situations. That’s when it really came to me that I had to appreciate this gift God was blessing me with.”
Jordan needed skin grafts on his left leg. But his burns elsewhere healed without help, which was unexpected.
He had to relearn how to walk. As he did he promised himself he would run someday soon.
