05/03/13 - Dolphins Sign 19 Undrafted College Free Agents...S - JORDAN KOVACS (5-10, 205, 6/12/90, Michigan): Ranks 12th on U-M's all-time tackles list (331 career tackles) ... Only the 15th player in Michigan history to record 300 career tackles. - MiamiDolphins.com
04/17/13 - 2013 NFL DRAFT: 124 FBS PROGRAMS, 124 POSSIBLE UNDRAFTED ROOKIE FREE AGENTS: MICHIGAN: S Jordan Kovacs (5-11, 205, 4.62)...A former walk-on, Kovacs doesn't have the speed or athleticism to hold up at safety in the NFL, but his intelligence and experience will make him a tough player to cut in camp. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
03/17/13 - 2013 Michigan Pro Day: Kovacs says he's spoken to nearly every NFL team and while his intellect and experience are his strengths, the biggest concern is whether the all-Big Ten safety is athletic enough to translate his game to the next level. He obviously isn't the most athletic safety in the draft, but he proved at the pro day he is at least average. The three-cone drill stands out -- he beat every safety at the combine -- while his 40-yard dash and 20-yard shuttle were around the middle of the pack. Is that enough to prove he can make it at the next level? "I don't know how much stock is actually put into this stuff," Kovacs said. "If I was a coach, I wouldn't put too much stock into it, to be honest with ya. If you're a football player, you're a football player. - Kyle Meinke, Michigan Live
03/17/13 - 2013 Michigan Pro Day: Jordan Kovacs, once considered too slow to play safety and still considered by some to be too unathletic to play in the NFL, bet one of the most electric players in Michigan history that he could win in two out of three speed drills. The deal went like this: Kovacs and Denard Robinson would compete in the 40-yard dash, three-cone drill and 20-yard shuttle, and whoever won at least two of the events had to buy the other a steak dinner at the Chop House. Robinson did his drills at the combine last month, and Kovacs did his Thursday at the Wolverines' pro day.
And, as it turns out, the former walk-on has beaten Robinson after edging him in the cone drill and shuttle run during a strong showing at the pro day. “Oh man, stop. Stop bringing it up,” said a laughing Robinson, who competed only in the 60-yard shuttle and positional drills at the pro day. “He did great today and take my hat off to him. I knew he’d do great." - Kyle Meinke, Michigan Live
03/17/13 - 2013 Michigan Pro Day: Jordan Kovacs, SS (5-10 5/8, 205) - Kovacs ran the 40 in 4.57 and 4.64 seconds. He had a 35-inch vertical jump and a 10-foot-2 broad jump. His short shuttle time was 4.18 seconds and he had a 6.70-second three-cone drill. He also performed 16 lifts of 225 pounds on the bench press. Kovacs is a good rookie free agent possibility. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
01/01/13 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: DB Jordan Kovacs is Michigan's top ball hawk in the secondary, its most-experienced defender on the back end, and likely its best at rapidly deciphering just what the opposing offense is up to. He will be facing QB Connor Shaw, who missed the season finale with a foot injury, and backup QB Dylan Thompson, who threw three touchdown passes in the win over Clemson that put the Gamecocks at 10-2. Kovacs has 65 tackles this season, five stops for losses, two sacks, an interception, two pass breakups and one forced fumble. - The Sports Xchange

09/07/12 - The Wolverines desperately need a bounce-back performance when they host Air Force in the next game. A return to Michigan Stadium should work wonders, but the hangover from the humbling loss to Alabama could be a big problem and dilute the confidence in the Wolverines' camp. "You can take this two ways," Michigan senior S Jordan Kovacs said following the loss to the Crimson Tide. "You can be upset about it and you can let Alabama beat us twice. Or you can learn from it." - The Sports Xchange
