Jordan Kovacs Michigan coach?

According to Jordan Strack, Jordan Kovacs is back at Michigan helping coach the Special Teams and  Defense. Strack also mentions that it is a limited role. I'm not 100% sure of the guys credibility, but seems kinda legit, he does have the blue checkmark on twitter lol! I know we have a maximum number of coaches so not sure how it will work, but cool to see him get into coaching. Here are the tweets.

 

Jordan Kovacs tells me he has returned to Michigan. He's coaching special teams & defense for the Wolverines.

It's neither actually. It's a limited role as he breaks in to coaching. https://t.co/oL3moPc5Ht

Don't know how this was missed! But on Saturday, Kovacs was moved from the practice squad to the 53-man roster for last Sunday's game. 

He is only playing special teams at the moment, but I hope someday this season he can actually see time as a Safety.

According to Maize N Brew's  Ex-Wolverines in the NFL, Kovacs recorded his first career NFL tackle on kickoff coverage.

Jordan Kovacs to Miami Dolphins Practice Squad

Jordan just announced on his twitter that he has been signed to the Dolphins Practice Squad.  As a Dolphin, fan I'm a little surprised, since it seemed like another safety may have been ahead of him, but I'm extremely happy for him.  Here's hoping that he sticks and eventually gets called up!

Jordan Kovacs survived (probably with ease) the first round of roster cuts the Dolphins made.  The much more difficult task will be to survive the final round cuts when the roster pares down to 53 - with his attitude and tenacity, I wouldn't put it past him.  Even in the event he does get cut after the next game I would imagine he'd be a shoe in for someone's practice squad. 

In any event, when I was checking into his roster status, I stumbled upon a nice write up on the Dolphins website.  Hits a lot of the points (he was a walk on?!?) that we've heard over and over, but also provides some insight into the draft process and his impressions of the NFL.  Go Jordan!

Edit:  Somehow I missed that the article was from early May.  The google news search indicated it was "8 hours old" so I figured this may have been new information that was board worthy.  Apologies.

Really cool article that features some of our opponents' anonymous responses to questions about Michigan's defense. They're very homogenous/consistent responses. An interesting read for those with Rivals subscriptions.

OT- NFL Jersey Sales - Compensation to Players Question

Now that Jordan Kovacs is headed down south to play for my beloved Dolphins, I was wondering if the individual players receive compensation or royalties for any of their pro jersey sales.  If Mr. Kovacs makes the team, I intend to purchase an Kovacs Dolphins Jersey.  I'd like think that he gets a small piece of that.  Anybody know?

A pre-draft profile on former Team 133 captain, Jordan Kovacs by Meinke at MLive.

Either way, he's just asking for a chance.

"I’m hoping for the best, preparing for the worst," Kovacs said. "That’s always been my approach. If I get picked, that’ll be great. If not, I’ve beaten the odds before.

"It’ll be a challenge either way, whether I’m picked in the fifth round, or whether I’m undrafted. It’s going to be a dogfight just to make a roster. I’m looking forward to the challenge."

 

It must be JORDAN KOVACS DAY since it looks like Angelique wrote one over at the Detroit News.

 

I'm rooting for him to get drafted or sign-on as a post-draft FA. 

Russ Lande (former NFL Scout) talks Robinson, Campbell, and Kovacs

Russ Lande (former NFL Scout) talks Robinson, Campbell, and Kovacs

Emphasis mine:

3. Michigan: Denard Robinson, RB/WR (5104, 199 and 4.42), William Campbell, DT/OG (6047, 318 and 5.30 E) and Jordan Kovacs, SAF (5110, 202 and 4.61):


After showing dramatic improvement at the Combine, Denard showed NFL teams that he has continued working very hard at making the transition from quarterback to receiver. He not only went through receiver drills, but also was put through running back drills as many teams believe that while his long term future is as a slot receiver, the fastest way for him to get on the field as a rookie will be as a third down back. During the workout, Denard displayed the explosive, game breaking athleticism that has NFL teams excited. After looking like a quarterback trying to play receiver at the Senior Bowl and Combine, Denard looked like a receiver at the workout and showed the confidence catching the ball that he had not before. He not only caught every pass thrown his way during the workout, but did so with hands and did not allow the ball to get into his body where he had to battle the ball.


Many NFL scouts were shocked that defensive tackle Williams Campbell was not invited to the Combine after a strong senior season and an impressive week of practice at the East West Shrine Game. A massive man with outstanding natural strength, NFL personnel in attendance were shocked at how smooth and easily he moved in drills. He not only went through defensive line drills, but also offensive line drills as some teams feel he has great potential as a guard. After his pro day performance we expect Campbell to be drafted, but what position he will be asked to play in the NFL will be determined by the team that selects him.


Still not assured of being drafted, safety Jordan Kovacs’ good all-around workout made his odds better than 50% of being selected. Not only did Kovacs run significantly faster than expected, but he also vertical jumped 35 and broad jumped 10. He is still not viewed as a potential starter, but after his workout NFL personnel told us they think he could be an excellent backup who excels on special teams.

Link Here. Also discusses CMU's Fisher, a WR from GVSU, and MSU's three early entrees in another post (Bell and Sims looked really good, Gholston really bad).

FWIW: Russ Lande is a former scout for the Rams and Browns. Not really sure about what connections he still has or if he's any good at predicting these kinds of things, so take it for what it's worth.

The Daily has a fun piece about a competition between Denard Robinson  and Jordan Kovacs, with the winner getting a steak dinner.  The competition involves preparing for the NFL draft.
