Jordan Suell returns for season three in a Stars uniform. Suell essentially rejoins Andrus and company for what will be his fifth season in this offense. He is one of many players who have the size, speed, and skill set to be in the NFL but had COVID prevent them from getting the type of workout circuit they normally would have in 2020. If you have any doubts that he belongs in the NFL consider I suggest you watch the embed videos in order.
At 6’6 205 pounds Suell ran a 4.49 40-yard dash, during his video pro day. This was after he produced 112 receptions, for 2,184 yards, and 27 touchdowns. This combination of size, speed and production is rare. It’s even more rare to find outside the NFL. Suell however slipped out of the 2020 draft.
This left him with few options, the XFL, CFL, IFL, etc had all shut down for the COVID season so his alternatives were limited to just one developmental league; The Spring League. This is where Suell played for Bart Andrus, and caught passes from Bryan Scott for the first time. He managed 12 receptions for 325 yards and 4 touchdowns in just 4 games with the league before they too shut down.
In 2021 after working out with the Indianapolis Colts, and New England Patriots, Suell headed North. He signed with the CFL’s Saskatchewan Roughriders and ironically caught passes from another future USFL QB Paxton Lynch who was there as a backup quarterback. Suell was released in final cuts alongside another future Stars player Antonio Garcia.
This left Suell to return to his American alternative, The Spring League playing for Bart Andrus once again. This time he played next to a couple more future Stars players in Devin Gray, Darnell Holland, Paul Terry, and Lirim Hajrullahu. This time working behind Melvin Vaughn, Devin Gray, and Siaosi Mariner he ended up catching just 9 passes for 73 yards. However this wouldn’t prevent him from drawing interest and being selected in the 2022 USFL Draft his third season with Andrus.
During the 2022 season Suell was one of the top options in the passing game once again and rekindled his relationships from the TSL with Bryan Scott, and Case Cookus. He went on to catch 36 passes for 370 yards and 3 touchdowns.
He again flashed an innate ability to leap over defenders and high point the ball, while reminding defensive backs how physically imposing he could be. This led to a great season, but somehow he wasn’t signed by an NFL team. This again led him back to Bart Andrus for the 2023 season and beyond.
The 2023 season didn’t go well for the Stars as a team, but it especially went poorly for Suell who was injured after just 6 games catching 12 passes for 130 yards. The Stars to their credit know Jordan Suell better than any other staff out there, so it makes sense that bringing back the “Suell Train” was our first priority.
Through four seasons Jordan Suell has 69 receptions for 898 yards and 7 touchdowns. If Suell can stay healthy, and the Stars could correct some of their offensive line woes, we could see a true break out season for the matchup nightmare.
