Ourlads' Profile:

2016 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about JIHAD WARD: Illinois, 6051 297 5.12. Two-year starter from Philadelphia, PA. A junior college transfer. A work in progress with the raw tools to make a ball club as a developmental player. Can get inside push as a pass rusher. Has light feet and relentless sideline to sideline effort. Gets work at both defensive tackle and defensive end. A versatile athlete who has a chance to fit into a front rotation once his pro physical development can get him on the field. He will upgrade the size and speed of a declining starter for a ball club. Can improve his hand use. Inconsistent to separate from a blocker. Question instincts and reaction quickness at times. Can fit in as a tackle or defensive end. We project a left end run stuffer in a 4-3 scheme. Senior Bowl notes: Has good length and a quick first step. Played with quick feet and balance during drills and team periods. Did well as a 3-technique rusher in one-on-one situations. Needs more punch consistency. 2015 stats: 53 T, 3.5 TFL, 1.5 sacks, 2 PBU, 2 QBH, 1 FF. Edge speed:left 2.13, right 2.04. OSR:20/28 for defensive tackles. Fourth/fifth round. (A-33 7/ 8, H-9 3/8, BP-20, 10-1.76).
