Chase Ford A Late Round Pick Teams Like

TE Chase Ford, Miami (FL): Despite an underwhelming career at The U, Chase Ford may have a bright future in the NFL. At just shy of 6'7" and 255lbs, he ran a 4.75 in the 40 yard dash with a 33 inch vertical, and good agility measures. Most importantly, I watched him live during East-West Shrine practices and he made plays all over the place. This translated to the game itself as he hauled in a big seam pass, broke the tackles of two defenders that came at him simultaneously, and used his speed to create a bunch of yards after contact. He made so many big plays like that in practice that by the end, quarterbacks were looking for him. Watching his highlights from JUCO at Kilgore, you see the same play maker. The black hole in his record is his time with The U, but he would hardly be the first athlete in recent memory that they have failed to utilize or develop properly, that go on to be better pros than collegians.
