Scouting Report: Jacoby Ford
Non-position specific categories
Wide Receiver Specific Categories
Has electrifying speed, and is also a great return man. Better hands than advertised. Has great body control and can make the touch catch by contorting his body. Very tough and is a willing blocker, but he isn’t very good at it. Decent route runner and he separates well. Solid, compact build and good muscle tone. Great after the catch ability. Also showed the ability to run the ball effectively from the reverse. Willing to make catches in the middle of the field.
Very short. Isn’t great at getting off press coverage. Body catches every once in a while. Probably won’t ever be a number 1 target. Is a willing, but poor run blocker- Better at just getting in the way.
An ideal slot receiver who will be a match up nightmare for linebackers, safety’s and nickle backs. He’s extremely quick and gets open fast, but is also a deep threat. Will play a lot of roles and make some team very happy.
Ford was a two year starter for Clemson and saw significant playing time in every season.
