Pre-season report:

Ware is a back that is going to make his living in the NFL as a between the tackles type of runner. He has decent quickness to the outside, but that’s not really where his game is. In LSU’s running back by committee style offense, Ware is probably one of the best power backs and he is the guy they use a lot in goal line and short yardage situations. He’s not extremely speedy or quick but he does hit the hole hard and he’s very decisive. One thing to pay attention to is the fact that the team suspended him last year for violating some rules, along with a couple of other players. Really an explosive player who knows how to get low and really absorb the first hit. Doesn’t usually go down on initial contact. Hasn’t shown much in terms of catching passes (21 career receptions) but he’s gotten better in that area. He will probably be a mid-late round pick unless he blows up this year, as he simply won’t have enough carries to blow scouts away and hasn’t shown great versatility as a runner. Seems more like a powerful back who has a nose for the end zone, and you always have room for one of those on your team.
