08/08/2012 - Top-five Northwestern prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 4. OT Patrick Ward...A two-time starter at right tackle, Ward is expected to move to the left side in 2012 as a senior, a position he hasn't played before at Northwestern. He is also best known as the player that received the cheap shot by Illinois Jonathan Brown last season that resulted in a suspension for the Illini linebacker. Ward was a top-30 offensive tackle recruit out of Illinois and passed up offers from Notre Dame, Stanford and Illinois to sign with the Wildcats. He was mostly used a reserve true freshman in 2009, seeing time in 12 games at both tackle and guard. Ward earned the starting right tackle job as a sophomore and started there every game the past two seasons (26 starts). With Al Netter graduating, Northwestern has a void at left tackle in 2012, a hole that the coaching staff is hoping Ward can fill. He has a large frame with average length and has been lauded for his intelligence both on and off the football field. Ward has good snap anticipation and get-off quickness, but needs to clean up his footwork and body positioning in his initial kickslide. He will need a big senior year to turn himself into a draftable prospect, but the move to the left side will give him every opportunity to show the NFL what he brings to the table. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
