2017 NFL Draft Profile: Jordan Roos

Purdue’s long time starter at guard has an outside chance at getting drafted.

NCAA Football: Purdue at Iowa Reese Strickland-USA TODAY Sports

In the NFL you are nothing without an offensive line. No quarter back can be successful and no running game can get established. If Purdue is to get a player drafted for a 20th straight year that player might come from the offensive line, as that is the area suffering the biggest losses in 2017.

Jordan Roos

Offensive Guard

6’4”, 302 pounds

40: 5.22

Roos was quietly a hard-worker and grinder for four years at Purdue. He was a four-year starter that played for a bad team as one of its better players. He would often open the door for Markell Jones with pulling blocks the last two years and he helped block for David Blough, who led the Big Ten in passing last season.

Roos has at least a chance of getting drafted, as he is listed as the No. 23 offensive guard in the draft according to NFL Draft Scout. He was not invited to the NFL combine, but put up decent numbers in Purdue’s pro day, including a 4.78 20 yard shuttle and a 7.47 3-Cone Drill. CBS also has him as the No. 23 offensive guard and No. 374 prospect overall.

Unfortunately, there are only 253 selections in the draft. Roos is a good, but not great offensive guard. He is good enough to land in someone’s training camp as a free agent, but he will really have to impress to get drafted or make a roster.
