BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter who began his college career at Memphis. Senior totals were 48/15.5/6, after 54/17/9 the prior year.
POSITIVES: Hard working pass-rusher with solid size/speed. Quick off the snap, plays with good pad level and protects himself with solid hand technique. Makes plays down the line and shows a burst of speed. Fires up the field and displays a good head for the game.
NEGATIVES: Undersized, can be driven off the line and is a liability in run defense. Tends to run around blocks, as he cannot face them head on. Has struggled with injuries throughout his career.
ANALYSIS: An intense defender, Ford has possibilities as an outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense, but must stay healthy for any chance of making it.
