Jordan Beck School: Cal-Poly
Ht: 6-2.5 Wt: 233 40: 4.55 Year: 4Sr
Bio: Won the '04 Buck Buchanan Award as the
top defensive player in Division IAA. Led the
team in tackles setting a school record last year
posting 135/18.5/5.5, also intercepting 4 passes
and breaking up nine more. Junior totals included
128/13/4 after a sophomore campaign of 113/
Positives: Tough, active linebacker constantly
around the ball. Quick to diagnose the action,
instinctive and takes good angles to the play.
Efficient, plays sideline-to-sideline and excels in
coverage. Gets depth on drops, easily runs with
opposing tight ends or backs and displays solid
ball skills. Outstanding leader on the defense.
Works hard in run defense and sacrifices his
body to make the play.
Negatives: Undersized and
swallowed up at the point. Slowed through the
trash laterally and easily knocked off balance by
the initial block.
Analysis: A productive collegian
four years running, Beck possesses the physical
and mental make-up to play at the next level.
Has the underlying athletic skills to project to the
weak-side yet his penchant to snuff out running
plays also makes Beck a good fit on the inside
of a 34 alignment. Moving up draft boards after
a terrific combine performance.
