(NEW YORK, NY) Despite not seeing their names run across the television screen during the NFL Draft, a pair of MIAA standouts still landed with teams Saturday evening.

Missouri Western tight end Reggie Jordan signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars, and the New Orleans Saints sign Northwest cornerback Brian Dixon.

Jordan, a 6-foot-3, 240-pound tight end, caught 52 passes for 679 yards and 17 touchdowns during his career at Missouri Western. He was a D2Football.com Honorable Mention All-American in 2012 and 2013.

He fielded calls from the Philadelphia Eagles, Detroit Lions and Tampa Bay Buccaneers before making the leap to the Jaguars.

Dixon became the second member of his immediate family to break into the NFL on Saturday. Twin brother Brandon was drafted in the sixth round by the New York Jets.

The former Bearcat also spoke to representatives from the Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys during the draft, but found a spot with the Saints.

Dixon had 21 tackles, seven passes defended, one interception and two forced fumbles during his senior campaign.
