Scouting Report

Ford may be the best overall back in LSU’s talented stable. He has really good size, but his speed is killer. He was LSU’s leading rusher in 2011 with 756 yards and seven touchdowns, and they used him quite a bit when they brought in Jordan Jefferson for the option. That might not be part of their offense this year as much if Zach Mettenberger can step up and be a top notch QB, but one thing is for sure–LSU will get Ford chances, specifically in open space. He has really great quickness and vision after he gets the ball, but one area where you’d like to see him get better is in the passing game, where he only had four receptions in 2011. I’m really intrigued by his size/speed combination and I think he could turn out to be the best of the bunch in the NFL.
