Eric Ward

School: Texas Tech
Position: WR
Positive: Three-year starter awarded all-conference honors since his sophomore season. Totals last year included 83 receptions, 947 yards, and 8 TDs. Junior totals included 82 receptions, 1053 yards, and 12 TDs. Productive college receiver with an inconsistent game. Uses his hands to separate from defenders off the line of scrimmage, sells routes, and contorts to come away with the ball. Fights for the ball, snatches the pass from the air, and for the most part makes the catch away from his frame. Keeps the play in bounds running after the catch, working to pick up positive yardage. Displays timing on his receptions and easily adjusts to the ball.
Negative: Average route runner and tends to round off breaks. Does not display naturally soft hands. Marginal downfield blocker. One-speed receiver.
Analysis: Ward was highly productive on the college level but never improved on the weaker points of his game. He'd be a good fit as a fifth receiver running underneath routes in a West Coast or timing offense but must play at a consistently high level.
