Strengths Weaknesses

Positives: Tall, with NFL measurable -- 33-inch arms, 10 1/4-inch hands -- with a filled-out, thick frame. Works hard on and off the field. Good strength throughout, fluid body control and natural movement skills. Soft hands and good concentration level with obvious toughness in congested areas. Negatives: Lacks the bulk strength to lock on and control NFL defensive linemen. Lower-body strength is questionable and limits his in-line blocking. Not physical and lacks a killer instinct. Not a quick-twitch athlete or polished route runner. Unproven with limited on-field experience. Sixteen career receptions at Miami.

Player Overview

Ford survive a life-threatening staph infection at 14, was not recruited but landed at Miami as a Juco All-American in 2009. He had poor production and only seven starts with the Hurricanes. His prototypical size, length and reliable hands push him into the developmental prospect category but he carries plenty of question marks.
