Dee Ford

School: Auburn
Position: DE
Positive: Full-time starter the past two seasons, totaling 29 tackles, 14.5 tackles for loss, and 10.5 sacks as a senior. Struggled with back injuries in the past. Explosive, athletic prospect who displays outstanding pass-rushing ability off the edge. Fast in every direction, forceful up the field, and a classic edge rusher. Easily changes momentum without losing momentum, can bend off the edge, and breaks down well. Quick moving in every area of the field, fires off the snap with a terrific first step, and very sudden. Shows skill out of a three-point stance as well as standing up over tackle.
Negative: Lacks bulk, strength, and cannot get off blocks once engaged at the point of attack. Can be a liability as a run defender. Took a lot of wide angles around college tackles he was able to exploit.
Analysis: Ford is a pass-rushing prospect who did well in 2013 then even better during the Senior Bowl. He's a bit one-dimensional, primarily making plays as a wide-angle edge rusher and has struggled with injuries almost every year at Auburn. Seemingly on everybody's list as a potential first-round choice, Ford is not as good as advertised and may be more of a situational defender rather than an every-down lineman.
