Overview:

Ward was very productive at Houston, where he completed 747 passes, for 8705 passing yards, along with 52 passing touchdowns, and only 26 interceptions. Ward is very experienced, has good speed, a strong arm, really accurate, and is a good pocket passer. He is also a play maker with his arm, and legs, he is very mobile, has a nice deep ball, and makes something out of nothing due to his speed. He is undersized, and overthrows his receivers at times. With that said, due to his size, I see Ward being a late round pick at best.
