140 Dee Ford OLB 12 Auburn rSr 6-2 240 4 Dee Ford, DE/OLB, Auburn He is Auburn’s most talented draft-eligible prospect, and it’s not very close. Dee Ford will have a big opportunity to prove he has the goods on Saturday. He will enter Neyland Stadium to take on Tennessee’s talented right tackle Ja’Wuan James. Ford brings a hot streak to this encounter, with 7 sacks in his last 5 games. After having his way with the likes of Cedric Ogbuehi in College Station, there’s no reason not to expect the same from Dee Ford this week. He has a terrific ability to convert speed to power and jolt blockers on initial contact. By knocking them off balance, he gains the upper hand and can work speed moves to the outside. What’s impressive is the discipline and intelligence with which he rushes. He can set up moves and always keeps pass blockers guessing. Dee Ford has the distinction of being a preseason watch list player for me but then really disappearing from my notes until recently. Now that I've had time to dig in and focus on the Auburn defense, I'm falling in love. Ford is a natural pass-rusher, and he's athletic enough to stand up and play in a 3-4 or slide in as a situational rusher in a 4-3 front. He has a postseason grade in my top 100.
