The Bengals abysmal offensive line play in 2018 makes drafting at least one lineman a certainty. Ford possesses a rare blend of size and athleticism. Standing at an impressive 6’4 and weighing in at 330 pounds, Ford is more than capable of holding his own against bull rushers by anchoring his weight in his hips. Ford was frequently used in screenplays and outside runs, utilizing his quick feet and fluid blocking style. Ford isn’t quite as tall as most left tackles and might be better suited playing on the right side of the line, but he is ready to play from day one. Ford’s combination of athleticism and strength mean that he would be a starter, and a good one, for the Bengals right away.
