2012 Season Countdown: #75 Jordan Paskorz

Jordan Paskorz
Name: Jordan Paskorz
Height: 6'3"
Weight: 246 lbs.
High school: Gibsonia (PA) Hampton
Position: Tight end
Class: Redshirt sophomore
Jersey number: #94
Last year: I ranked Paskorz #75 and said he would be a special teams contributor.  He did not see game action.

Paskorz has spent two seasons in Ann Arbor, and he has yet to see the field.  Originally recruited by Rich Rodriguez as a hybrid defensive end/outside linebacker, Paskorz practiced as a SAM linebacker last season but couldn't crack the depth chart, getting outplayed by a trio of inexperienced linebackers in Jake Ryan, Cam Gordon, and Brennen Beyer.

For the upcoming season, Paskorz moved to tight end during the spring.  The graduation of Kevin Koger and Steve Watson, along with the early departure of freshman Chris Barnett, left a gaping hole at the tight end position.  Senior Brandon Moore is expected to start at tight end, but a couple incoming freshmen will try to contribute, too.  In the limited snaps we saw of Paskorz during the spring, he looked somewhat uncoordinated and overmatched by other athletes on the team.  I would be surprised to see Paskorz make anything more than a minimal contribution.

Prediction: Bench


  1. With all respect to the guy, he has to be one of the most anonymous players on the team.

    Suppose he magically gained fifty pounds of good weight. Could you see him playing the 3-tech position?

    1. I could see him being listed as a "DT" if he gained 50 pounds. I don't think he would see the field.
