Regarding Illinois senior DT Jihad Ward's move from receiver/safety to the defensive line in JUCO, NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter writes that "the sky's the limit once he really knows what to do with his size and strength."
"He was an honorable mention All-Big Ten selection by league coaches in his first season with the Illini, playing inside and outside and using his huge wingspan to swallow ball carriers," Reuter wrote. "Ward could be one of the fastest risers up draft boards (maybe to the second round?) if he approaches his potential this season." The 6-foot-6, 295-pounder posted 51 tackles, 8.5 TFL and three sacks last year. Jul 29 - 7:52 PM
