Jordan Cameron (born August 8, 1988) is an American football tight end for the Cleveland Browns of the National Football League. He played college football at the University of Southern California.

Early yearsEdit

Cameron attended Newbury Park High School in Newbury Park, California. He made the All-Marmonte League first team in 2004 as a junior. As a senior in 2005, he made Prep Star All-West and once again made All-Marmonte League first team. He caught 73 passes for 1,022 yards and 12 touchdowns in his senior year. He was a teammate of former San Jose State' quarterback, Jordan LaSecla.[1] He also starred in basketball and volleyball at Newbury Park High.

His sister Brynn played guard on the USC women's basketball team and his brother Colby currently plays quarterback for the Louisiana Tech football team.

Collegiate careerEdit

After high school, Cameron decided to play basketball at Brigham Young University rather than football. After redshirting his freshman year (2006–07), he decided to give football another try. He transferred to USC in 2007 to play football as a wide receiver.[2] However, when USC refused to accept some of Cameron's credits from Brigham Young, he was forced to withdraw and attend Ventura College. He missed the football season but was given the option to try and rejoin the team in 2008. Even if he had stayed at USC, due to NCAA transfer rules he would have been ineligible to play in 2007.[3]

Cameron ended up enrolling at USC a year later and saw brief action for the Trojans at wide receiver in both the 2008 and 2009 seasons, but did not make any catches. Prior to his senior year, he was moved from receiver to tight end and really embraced the move.[4] In his final season at USC, Cameron caught 16 passes for 126 yards and a touchdown.

Professional careerEdit

Pre-draftEdit

After his senior season at USC, Cameron was invited to play in the East–West Shrine Game where he made a big impression on the coaches during the week of practice.[5] Cameron helped his draft stock significantly during his workouts at the NFL Combine.[6] He was in the top three of every drill he participated in and fifth in bench press reps. He was projected to be a mid to late round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.
