Bio: 
Led Texas A&M with 12 rushing touchdowns and rushed for 548 yards on 139 carries in 2017. Rushed 126 times for 669 yards and six TDs as a junior. Sat out the 2015 season after transferring from Oklahoma. Started three games and carried 71 times for 392 yards and five touchdowns as a sophomore. Rushed for 134 yards and one score on 23 carries in 2013.
Pos: 
Strong downhill ball carrier who runs with an aggressive style. Sees the field, finds running lanes and runs north and south. Explosive, gets a lot of momentum going up the field and displays quickness. Blasts through running lanes, works hard to pick up extra yardage and falls forward when tackled. Effectively helps the quarterback sell ball fakes.
Neg: 
Lacks perimeter speed. Does not run with great balance. Loses momentum when he alters the angles of his runs. Not a quick cutback runner.
Analysis: 
Ford was graded as a potential sixth-round choice entering the season, but he turned in a poor senior campaign and will slide out of the draft’s seven rounds. He’s limited but could line up as a solid short-yardage ball carrier on Sundays.
