Oregon State Draft Preview: Jordan Villamin

New, 1 comment

Will Villamin’s prototypical size and athleticism earn him a spot in the NFL?

NCAA Football: Arizona State at Oregon State Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY Sports

Height: 6-5

Weight: 225

Class: Senior

Career Stats: 129 receptions, 1847 yards, 13 TD’s


Overview

Jordan Villamin’s time at Oregon State was extremely polarizing. He burst onto the scene as a freshman recording over 500 yards and 6 TD’s. And followed it up with another impressive season as a sophomore (660 yards 5 TD’s). Many predicted Villamin would reach new heights as a junior than declare for the 2017 NFL draft. Unfortunately things don’t always go as planned and Villamin struggled mightily as an upperclassman. Beaver nation was enamored with Villamin’s acrobatic catches and equally disappointed by his drops and tendency to disappear during crucial stretches. Villamin appeared to take giant steps backwards as an upperclassman, but in fairness most of his career at OSU was marked by extremely inconsistent quarterback play. His career stats are nevertheless shocking to say the least.

Jordan Villamin has the height and athleticism that every NFL QB covets in a target. His 6’5 frame and ability to haul down tough, contested throws will certainly grab the attention of NFL scouts. Scouts like Beaver nation will be equally confused by the drops and inconsistency he showed as an upperclassman though. Villamin will probably not hear his name called in the 2018 NFL draft, but there is a good chance he will sign with an NFL team as an undrafted free agent. Despite his up-and-down tenure Jordan Villamin should get the benefit of the doubt though. He never got to develop a rhythm with any one quarterback. Sean Mannion went to the NFL after Villamin’s freshman season and he spent the rest of his career catching passes from a combination of: Seth Collins, Nick Mitchell, Marcus McMaryion, Darell Garretson, Conor Blount and Jake Luton.
