The Texans' depth chart at tight end is pretty thin, so it's not out of the question Jordan, a fifth-round pick out of Miami, could play a role. He was a productive big-play receiver in college who played well as a young freshman and had 38 catches for 576 yards and seven touchdowns as a junior before leaving early for the draft. Jordan is a decent athlete who could emerge as the Texans' top tight end pretty early on. He probably wouldn't be much more than a streamer even if that did happen, at least as a rookie, and even in Rookie-only or Dynasty leagues, Jordan is a pretty fringy prospect.
The Texans selected Jordan in the fifth round of the 2021 NFL Draft, 147th overall. Jordan was a very productive pass catcher at Miami (FL), but as an undersized tight end (6-foot-3, 247 pounds) he didn't test as well as previously hoped, registering a 4.68-second pro day 40 to go with poor agility numbers and mediocre jumps. There's a thin line between a Jordan Reed and a Hunter Bryant, and it's tough to tell where Jordan lands specifically on that spectrum. With the Texans, Jordan will need to compete for a pass-catching specialist role at tight end, and his main competition figures to be the underwhelming Jordan Akins.
