Jimmie Ward has led the Huskies in tackles for three years. Works through traffic and wraps up on wide receiver screens. Explosive coming downhill on plays in front of him. Takes good angles in support or pursuit. Accepted an invitation to the 2014 Senior Bowl. Ourlads' Snippet
DRAFT NOTES: Semifinalist for the Jim Thorpe Award (Nation's Best Defensive Back). Leads team in passes defended (14) and interceptions (6), tackles (77) and solo stops (50).

Fourth year senior, three year starter that has been very productive. Ward is an undersized safety that lacks a physical presence. While he is aggressive and consistently hustles all over the field, he fails to make an impact on the game as a power player. He has made a lot of tackles over the past three years, but he is an ankle diver and won’t send any jolt to the ball carrier. I think he is the kind of defensive back that misses a lot of tackles at the next level, which isn’t the end of the world for his potential but I tend to stay away from safeties like this. As a cover man he man, he has the tools and plays the position like a cornerback sometimes. Very quick feet and agile hips. Diagnoses well and has made some tremendous plays on the ball in the three games I’ve watched. I think Ward ends up going between rounds 3 and 5….I am likely going to have him grade out a bit lower.
