Ford had a great career at Auburn, where he posted 275 tackles, 11.5 for loss, 5 interceptions, and 11 pass breakups. He has great speed, is good in coverage, a hard hitter, and is versatile, as he can lineup in the slot, in addition to playing safety. He is also very experienced, and a good blitzing defensive back. He is a bit undersized, and he sometimes does not play the ball in coverage. With that said, Ford should be a day 3 pick.
