Ward is my value pick for safety.
I've watched a fair few games of his and he's terrifically consistant. Despite this write up here he's more a free safety than a run defender. Has an eye for picks but isn't a splash play type in general. Just incredibly aware and committed with very good range and speed.
You might take him for the Fins and put Jones back in his more natural SS role, but for Miami I really think Pryor is worth the first round pick.
Great call. I like Ward a lot. Takes good angles, sure tackler, can drop down to cover WR's, can blitz - very quick. I think he'd pair great with R. Jones. Has some Earl Thomas to his game.
