Since being taken with the #7 overall pick by the 49ers in 2011 NFL draft, DE Aldon Smith has racked up an absurd 33.5 sacks over his first 2 years in the league. By some, he was seen as the "next DeMarcus Ware" when he came out due to his scheme versatility as a 4-3 DE or 3-4 OLB.
So now teams are looking for the "next Aldon Smith" and according to Mike Mayock, that could be Oregon DE/LB Dion Jordan.
"When I see (Jordan) play, I see a raw Aldon Smith," Mayock said. "He needs to gain 20 pounds (to fill out his 6-foot-7 frame)."
Is Dion Jordan the next Aldon Smith?
