Strengths

Ward is athletic enough to play both cornerback and safety. Has good speed and sinks his hips well to maintain it in transition. Smart player who takes good angles in run support and is a sound tackler. Reads the quarterback's eyes to anticipate routes in the passing game.

Weaknesses

Ward lacks height and overall size. Can be out-muscled by bigger receivers and struggles to disengage from blockers in run support. Does not have the explosion and ball skills to be a true centerfielder. There are questions about his durability after two major knee surgeries.
