#41 Jordan Campbell, Linebacker
Weight: 240 lbs.
College: New Mexico Highlands
Hometown: Norco, CA
NFL Experience: Rookie
Jordan Campbell has entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent and has many fans watching him. Campbell has numerous subscribers to his YouTube channel and has his own clothing line, but it all has to do with motivation. His work ethic is high and he doesn’t allow his size limitations to bring him down. He has faced adversity, both on and off the field. Working with Pete Carroll at USC and Charlie Strong at Louisville,Campbell has been given chances to learn what the NFL is like.
Hard work is something Jordan Campbell prides himself in, it’s something that coaches Marvin Lewis and Mike Zimmer look at, but there is also production to look into. Although Campbell went to USC and Louisville, he never played a down as a Card and some off the field issues surged, he played linebacker only at New Mexico Highlands.
While looking at a NFL prospect, one must be willing to look into smaller schools as well. Instead of focusing on the names on their schedule, focus on the attributes the player has. Campbell is a very raw player at the linebacker position, but during his time at NMHU one can easily tell that he has potential to be a starting linebacker.
