 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  First-year East Carolina football safety D.J. Ford is noticeable on the practice field with his 6-foot-3 and 215-pound frame, but intangibles might be just as important to his craft in his final year of collegiate eligibility. Pirate coach Mike Houston described the senior safety, who was a starter for North Carolina of the Atlantic Coast Conference during the 2018 and '19 seasons, as long and rangy first and foremost, but also a smart player. "The thing that has been so impressive to me is I spent a lot of time last week with that unit, and just his preparation in the meeting room taking detailed notes and asking really good questions," Houston said after Tuesday's practice in full pads. "He was really preparing himself, then taking that to the field. You can tell he's a savvy guy who has played a lot of snaps." Ford opted out of the 2020 season at UNC before signing with the Pirates last December as a graduate transfer. He was a standout immediately during ECU winter workouts and also has caught the eye of Houston and defensive coordinator Blake Harrell. - Daily Reflector
