This post is part of a continuing series in which we break down 13 2011 NFL Draft prospects - our Baker's Dozen - that should interest the Buffalo Bills. Previous character scouting reports: WR Julio Jones, DT Nick Fairley, DT Marcell Dareus, DE Da'Quan Bowers.
Cameron Jordan, when you get right down to it, is a boring football prospect. There's good boring and bad boring; Jordan is boring in a good way. He's an experienced, talented, consistent football player. More than most incoming rookies, scouts have a very good idea exactly what type of player Jordan will be. He's in a similar situation when you talk about his character.
There's one blip on Jordan's radar off the field: he was suspended for the 2008 season opener by Cal head coach Jeff Tedford for violating team rules; in reality, he'd been arrested for driving under the influence. That'd be a concerning development if it weren't an anomaly; Jordan is squeaky clean aside from that one incident.
By all accounts, Jordan is an extremely hard worker. He strives for excellence. He's mature beyond his years - a strong leader-by-example type. Add in his NFL bloodlines, and absolutely no one questions Jordan's character.
