Dion Jordan will miss 3-4 months after shoulder surgery

Does Oregon run a 3-4 defense? Or would Jordan be learning a new position if he came into our 3-4, and because of the shoulder issue, miss the rookie camp, OTA's, and mini-camps leading into our training camp? If that's the case, then it would seem like his rookie year would largely be a loss.

IIRC, he played 4-3 DE but was used a lot like a 3-4 OLB. He dropped into coverage very often and was used as a pass rusher. So the transition wouldn't be painful by any means. He wouldn't be able to participate in rookie camp drills and OTA's but I'm sure he would attend and at least begin to learn the nuances of what's expected of him. If it's 3-4 months recovery time then I'm sure he'd be ready by training camp and should at least fight for a roster spot.
