I really wanted Pete and John to draft this kid out of USC a couple of years ago. He's another basketball player who switched to football. He originally went to BYU on a hoops scholie and then transferred to USC and switched to football. He's very athletic (as you can see in the embedded YouTube below), but was raw coming out of 'SC as Pete barely used Jordan at WR. Kiffin switch him over to TE Jordan's senior year. The Browns drafted him as a project because the potential was clearly there.
Tonight Jordan had 3 receptions for 42 yards and 2 TDs. That led to Mooch being overheard asking "Who the f&*#$ is Jordan Cameron" during the game recap tonight.
Sure could use him about now. Oh well. Hopefully Luke Willson develops into something special.
He's taken some time to develop. So, hopefully guys the Hawks have now will develop as well. Maybe Luke Willson's skill set is more similar to this guy than we think. Actually, that's an interesting comparison.
My youngest son and I met and talked with Jordan after a practice for the E-W Shrine Game the year he was drafted. I saw his USC helmet and asked him about Pete Carroll. He was an easy guy to talk with - had a regular conversation with the guy. I think he wasn't even the starting TE at USC, perhaps had battled injuries or something. I don't recall. But, he brought it up in the conversation that he was still there as a draft prospect despite maybe not being on everyone's radar.
Interesting side notes: His sister, Brynn, had a child with Matt Leinart. His brother is Colby Cameron (La Tech rookie free agent QB with the Carolina Panthers.)
