Isaiah Ford NFL Draft Profile
Isaiah Ford-WR-Virginia Tech
Size: 6’2 195lbs
- Ball tracking
- Home run threat
Analysis: Isaiah Ford is a superb athlete with good height. His game features big acceleration out of his breaks and is able to create easy throwing windows on slants and crossing routes. Varies route speed to disguise his intentions. Chomps up cushion with his speed and stems defenders into off-balance transitions and false steps. Sustains vertical danger throughout his routes. Can get up and over cornerbacks without appearance of much effort. Tracks the deep ball and has ball skills to finish.
- Struggles against press coverage
- Route running
Analysis: Isaiah Ford’s thin frame needs weight for greater functional strength. Can be redirected off route by force. He has average hand strength as pass catcher. Has speed, but lacks elusiveness after the catch. Lacks instincts for the position. Gets open with speed and quickness rather than being route-savvy. Physicality and athleticism of NFL cornerbacks will take adjustment time. Positional run blocker who can be thrown out-of-the-way by aggressive cornerbacks.
NFL Comparison: Terrance Williams
