Hometown: Chico, CA
News and Notes:
Based on the comments from my previous draft posts, I’d like to point out that this is a prospect profile, not a draft prediction. I haven’t analyzed a player who I think the Packers will take at 26 and that trend is going to continue; in fact I’m not advocating one way or the other that the Packers should draft/sign Jordan Rodgers at all. With that being said, Jordan Rodgers is an interesting prospect because he’s almost a reflection of what Aaron Rodgers’ story might have been had it not gone as well; Jordan also started at Butte Community College, where he lead the team to it’s first undefeated season in his second year. He then transfered to a big name football program (Vanderbilt) but ended up redshirting his freshmen year with a shoulder injury. From there he rode the bench until injuries struck and ended up as the starter, again much like his brother. However, it took Jordan two years to transfer out of JUCO, then lost a year after getting a medical redshirt and only ended up as the legitimate starter in his senior year. All in all, Jordan Rodgers will begin his NFL career at 25 while his older brother was only 21, which makes Aaron’s story all that more incredible. It’s hard to imagine how different Aaron Rodger’s story would be if Jeff Tedford hadn’t come up to Chico to scout a tight end or if Rodgers hadn’t had the chance to start as a junior, but in fact that story might be Jordan Rodgers.

Brothers Aaron and Jordan Rodgers work out together at Whole Body Fitness in their hometown of Chico, CA.
In what could be heralded as “the feel good movie of the summer” (at least for Green Bay Packers fans), Whole Body Fitness recently released a YouTube video highlighting the combined workouts of Aaron and Jordan Rodgers. These two quarterbacking brothers have been working out together this offseason in their hometown of Chico, California.
Most people know Aaron Rodgers as the starting quarterback of the Green Bay Packers. Successor to Brett Favre, and the recent MVP of Super Bowl XLV, his notoriety and abilities have grown exponentially over the past few years. He’s gone through his career with a chip on his shoulder and is finally getting the acclaim he deserves.
Now, in light of his path to success, perhaps it is time to start keeping an eye on Aaron’s little brother, Jordan.
Jordan Rodgers is five years younger than Aaron, but he seems to be following closely in his older brother’s footsteps. Upon graduating from Pleasant Valley High School, where he was the starting quarterback, Jordan went on to play at Butte Junior College. Knowledgeable fans will know this as the same place Aaron attended before going to the University of California, Berkeley, and eventually the Green Bay Packers. Read more...
