07:29 PM ET 05.01 | Jordan and Thomas, two of the Dolphins??? top three draft picks last weekend, have something in common ??? and it???s not just the logo they???ll be wearing on their helmet. Both players are currently rehabbing from surgery to repair a torn labrum in their right shoulder and likely won???t be healthy enough to participate in the team???s offseason program. Jordan suffered his injury in the eighth game of the 2012 season, and after trying to fight through it ??? he played in three of the Ducks??? final five games ??? he decided to have surgery on Feb. 28. Thomas, meanwhile, suffered his torn labrum at the Senior Bowl in late January and had surgery shortly thereafter. The injury typically takes 4-6 months to heal, and the Dolphins hope both will be ready by the start of training camp in July. But the injury could affect, for example, if Thomas is ready to compete for the left guard spot or if he will simply be a contributor his rookie year. Same with Jordan, who will likely be brought along slowly.

Jordan is NEVER gonna be ready. At least he'll never be ready to produce like the third pick in the draft should be capable of producing.

Jordan isn't a great football player, plain and simple. He's average at best, and even in college he missed more than 50% of Oregon's defensive snaps. Not due to injury. Coach's decision. Dude wasn't good enough to see the field for even half of the Ducks' defensive plays.

Mad overrated.
