Offensive players excite fan bases. Defensive players don’t. Unless you’re the Miami Dolphins, whose defense finished near the basement of the league.
The Dolphins traded with the Oakland Raiders to move up nine spots and select Oregon defensive end Dion Jordan. The Dolphins posted a picture on their Instagram account of their excited fans at Sun Life Stadium. Look at these guys. They’re freaking out! Looks like there is a frat party going on.
Jordan is a legit pass-rushing threat and is versatile enough to drop back in coverage. The Dolphins’ legendary offseason continues. It seems like so long ago when Cam Cameron took Ted Ginn Jr.
They may also have been excited about the new-look logo and unis the team unveiled prior to the draft.
