Cons:

  • On the ground too much

Overall

The first thing you notice when watching Poona Ford is his burst off the line. He has such a high motor and gives such a great effort, he is constantly pushing offensive lineman back and getting pressure to quarterbacks. Ford also has a lot of strength and a great punch off the line. Unfortunately, that’s all he has. He needs to work on his pass rush moves going forward if he wants to consistently play in the NFL. Ford also spends a lot of time on the ground, but he can fix that. He is currently looking like a 3rd round pick on draft day.
