Former First Team All-Southland Defensive Back Jordan Batiste Making Noise as NFL Draft Approaches

Jordan Batiste is among the fastest rising corners in the NFL Draft.

​Former Southeastern and Tulane defensive back Jordan Batiste has been rocketing up draft boards the past few weeks. Batiste, who was a four year starter between Southeastern and Tulane is known as one of the most well-rounded defensive backs in the country. With 13.5 tackles for loss, 5 sacks, and 2 interceptions at Southeastern Batiste was one of the most feared defensive players in the Southland Conference.  Jordan was one of the stars of the Tropic Bowl in Florida and has had great interest from a host of NFL teams.

Jordan Batiste has experience playing cornerback, free safety and strong safety. He has incredible quickness and is one of the better overall athletes in this class. Batiste was a star at his pro day on March 17th. After blazing a 4.51 40 yard dash, 4.06 shuttle, Batiste impressed everyone in attendance when he jumped a 39.5 inch vertical and finished his 3 cone drill in 6.81 seconds. Both of these numbers would have been enough to land Batiste in the top 5 at the NFL Combine in each respective category. Batiste is  an extremely sure tackler who has the ability to blitz as well as shut down receivers in coverage.

"Jordan will be a true nickel corner in the league who has the ability to roll back, move out wide or come off the edge because of his great athleticism. In today's NFL a player who can play that specialized position is at a premium."
