The Good: Aggressive zone safety best between the numbers. Forceful up the field, possesses a burst of speed and is a solid open field tackler. Effective making plays in space and above-average sideline-to-sideline range. Displays good awareness in centerfield and quickly diagnoses the action.
The Bad: Plays faster than his 40 time, yet he still lacks classic size/speed numbers. Average ball skills.
The Verdict: Ward has shown a lot of skill the past two seasons and is a resilient player who works hard on the field. He offers possibilities as a starting safety for a zone system, and has a special teams mentality for the next level.
