Tight End U continues its legacy as Brevin Jordan was selected 147th overall (5th Round) by the Houston Texans. Although he had to wait longer than expected and had been one of the best available for much of Day Three, the natural playmaker can develop into a contributor.
In three years at TEU, Jordan pulled down 105 receptions, 1,356 yards, and 13 TDs. This past season, despite missing three games, he had his most productive season and tallied 38 receptions for 576 yards, and 7 TDs. Also, of note, Jordan is only 20-years old and doesn’t turn 21 until July, so should have a lengthy career ahead of him if his success translates.
Get ready to see Jordan repping the U on Sundays in pregame as he gave an impassioned speech after his Pro Day where he said, in part, “I’m going to go to the grave, I’m going to have a University of Miami jersey. When I go into the League, you’re gonna see me In pregame with a University of Miami jersey on.”
Jordan aims to make the U proud as well as his late father, Darrell, who tragically passed away from a heart attack prior to Brevin’s freshman season. Darrell, who also played football and was a linebacker at Bishop Gorman High School (Las Vegas NV) and was a ninth round pick by the Atlanta Falcons in 1990, was indubitably a primary reason for Brevin’s admiration for football from birth. As it relates to his success in the NFL, Brevin indicated in a recent NFL Network interview with Andrew Siciliano how he wants to carry on his late father’s legacy and “play” in the NFL. That is, Brevin noted that his dad was drafted but never really saw action in the league.

Jordan speaks highly of his heir apparent, Will Mallory, who looks to carry the torch at TEU with Elijah Arroyo, Dominic Mammarelli, and soon to add Kahlil Brantley to campus.
As for Jordan, it is unclear who he will be catching passes from on Sundays as the status of Deshaun Waton’s legal situation remains unclear. The Texans also picked up Tyrod Taylor and drafted Davis Mills, Stanford, 67th overall yesterday. The Texans also drafted a big-bodied receiver, Nico Collins, Michigan, at 89th overall yesterday. The passing game features speedy receivers Brandin Cooks and Randall Cobb, but the Texans are certainly in a rebuilding phase so Jordan should have the opportunity to contribute.
Draft eligible Canes, Quincy Roche and Jose Borregales, await hearing their name called on Saturday. Congrats Brevin.
