Ford is an explosive receiver that has a lot of skills but is a bit on the undersized side. There were concerns about his hands as he likes to body catch a lot of balls but he showed pluck ability in the Senior Bowl practices this winter. He definitely has long speed as he ran a 6.52 60-meter dash in the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships in March of 2009. He has a tendency to rely on his track speed at times, and will need to work on altering how fast he runs his routes. He probably fits the role of a slot receiver as a team?s No. 3 receiver.
