Draft Scout Jordan Rodgers News
04/29/13 - Jaguars agree to terms with 23 Rookie Free Agents: The Jacksonville Jaguars have agreed to terms with 23 rookie free agents. These 23 players are expected to join the Jaguars’ eight drafted players and others for rookie mini-camp beginning Friday, May 3. QB Jordan Rodgers, Vanderbilt - Jaguars.com
03/29/13 - 2013 Vanderbilt Pro Day: Aaron Rodgers’ younger brother sets sights on NFL...Representatives from 22 NFL teams - including a large contingent representing the Tennessee Titans - gathered at a joint pro day for Tennessee State and Vanderbilt held on March 22, where 12 Tennessee State players worked out in the morning and nine Vanderbilt players worked out in the afternoon. The pro day was held at Tennessee State since Vanderbilt does not have an indoor practice facility.
Jordan Rodgers, Vanderbilt QB (6-1 1/4, 212) - Rodgers, the younger brother of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, was only able to throw the ball at the pro day due to a left groin injury. He threw it pretty good, too, and has a chance to be signed as a rookie free agent to be a training camp arm (by the Packers, perhaps?). In 2012, Rodgers threw for 2,539 yards with 15 touchdowns and five interceptions for the Commodores. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
01/03/13 - The Packers’ road schedule occasionally prevented Rodgers from watching every one of Jordan’s games, but he saw most of them and made it a point to talk with his younger brother on the phone as much as possible afterward.
“I’m really proud of him,” Rodgers said. “He’s worked his butt off going to junior college, red-shirting, getting through shoulder surgery, keeping his head up and staying focused. Doing really good in school, he’s graduating with a great degree from Vanderbilt, and hopefully moving on and pursuing his dream of being a professional quarterback.”
Like Rodgers’ senior year at California, their parents, Ed and Darla, traveled to each one of Jordan’s games his senior year. He finished his college career with 4,063 passing yards, 24 touchdowns and 15 interceptions and is already turning his attention to preparing for April's NFL Draft.
“I think so, I really do,” said Rodgers on if Jordan could play in the NFL. “He has a pretty good pedigree. He has a great work ethic and he’s got some time now to get ready for hopefully the combine, if not a pro day, and he’s going to get right to his workouts. “It’s a tough stretch, but he’s a beast in the weight room and if he gets a chance to go to the combine he’s going to run a really good time and throw well, and I think a team will want to take a chance on him.” - Weston Hodkiewicz, Green Bay Press Gazette
12/31/12 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: QB Jordan Rodgers' up-and-down ways last season had a lot to do with whether VU won or lost a season ago. Rodgers was pulled from last season's bowl loss against Cincinnati for poor play and hit just 50 percent of his passes, but you'd be hard-pressed to find many passers more consistent than Rodgers this season. He hit 59.5 percent of his passes and cut his interception rate by nearly two-thirds (1.7 percent in 2012) while averaging 8.3 yards per attempt.
QUOTE TO NOTE: "When I got here three years ago, I thought it would be great to have the opportunity to play in the SEC, maybe to compete against some of the best. But I never thought that we'd be one of the best, and we're going to be one of the best." QB Jordan Rodgers, who transferred to Vandy from a JUCO and redshirted a year before taking over as the starter a season ago - The Sports Xchange
12/31/12 - Vanderbilt didn't move the ball much, but used a 5-0 advantage in turnovers as well as some timely offensive plays, as the hometown Commodores beat N.C. State, 38-24, on New Year's Eve in the Music City Bowl. The Commodores managed just 225 yards of total offense, but took advantage of great field position to turn three of those five turnovers into 17 points. Three came on interceptions off Wolfpack quarterback Mike Glennon.
VU senior quarterback Jordan Rodgers also came up big when it mattered, throwing touchdowns to Chris Boyd and Jordan Matthews and also adding a rushing score of his own. Rodgers' rushing touchdown came with 5:11 remaining, and gave the Commodores an insurmountable 38-17 lead at the time. The victory gave the Commodores (9-4) their first bowl win since the 2008 Music City Bowl, and their first nine-win season since 1915. Most of the action came in the first half. The Wolfpack (7-6) outgained VU 187-151 in offensive yards at the break, but trailed 28-14 mostly because of four turnovers. - The Sports Xchange
