BC Lions draft pick Jordan Herdman attending Detroit rookie mini-camp

Canadian linebacker Jordan Herdman has accepted an invitation to attend rookie mini-camp with the Detroit Lions this weekend.

Herdman went to Kansas City Chiefs rookie mini-camp last weekend but did not receive a contract offer. It’s another opportunity for Herdman to showcase his skills in hopes of securing an NFL contract.

He was selected in the seventh round, 60th overall by the BC Lions in the 2017 CFL draft on May 7. That came after a stellar career at Simon Fraser University, registering Great Northwest Athletic Conference records for career (428), single-season (165) and single-game (26) tackles. Twice he was been named the GNAC’s top defensive player.

The Winnipeg native attended the 2017 Senior Bowl, a top showcase event for U.S. college players and delivered a bone-crunching hit.

Herdman had several NFL teams come to his pro day in Vancouver.

  1. Stud LB in college but a long shot to make the NFL. I do think that he can have a solid CFL career despite his combine results being less than stellar. The kid can flat out play.

  2. Can’t blame the kid from trying the NFL but his best bet is to hone his skills in the CFL and put up great #s. Once he does that the NFL will come calling as they have with many of the best players to play in the CFL.
