Jaguars Shopping for Help in the Middle
Dizon's head coach Dan Hawkins had complimentary things to say about Jordan-
"The guy has a relentless motor. We always talk about playing hard, playing smart and having fun and he does that. It is always one of those intangibles, and it is kind of hard to figure out exactly why some guys are going to work harder, whether you are a writer or a football player. Generally at the end of the day, the guys who can grind and grind hard every day are usually pretty successful."
Hawkins went on about Dizon--
"He should be the Butkus (Award) guy as well. Just his production, you look at what he has done and the schedule we have played. Again, it's easy to say we all like our own guys, but we've had a lot of (scouts) who have seen every football player in America come through here and it is pretty much a unanimous call by them that he is the best linebacker in the country."
With young linebackers Daryl Smith, Clint Ingram, and Justin Durant currently on the Jaguars roster, as well as veteran Mike Peterson, the Jaguars aren't expected to be in the market for a linebacker early in the draft. Then again, not many people had the team taking Durant in the second round last year.
