Among the more underrated SEC defenders
Strengths
Athletic and physical specimen. Versatile, played slot corner, free safety, strong safety, some running back, and returned kicks at Auburn. Consistent in his footwork and takes great angles when pursuing ball carriers. Wraps up when tackling and can be physical.
Weaknesses
Didn't generate many turnovers; Lacks ideal height and wingspan to be an NFL free safety: Consistent player but not a huge playmaker. Doesn't breakup as many balls as he should.
Overall Analysis
Ford is one of the more underrated players in this years class. His versatility and physical attributes are impressive as is his consistency. He will not be among the more celebrated draftees but he should sneak into the draft's second day and has the ability to help a team immediately as a nickel corner, nickel safety, or strong safety. Ford has the potential to be a long term starter for whichever team drafts him.
