The Miami Dolphins are trying to turn all stones, and today they are proving it. The team has Gerald Ford, the former Valdosta State wide receiver in for a workout. Ford missed the entire last season due to academics, but was dominate when he was on the field.
Ford certainly made a name for himself during his career at Valdosta State. While he missed the 2011 and 2013 seasons due to being academically ineligible, Ford put up monster numbers when he was on the field. In helping the Blazers to the 2012 Division II national championship, the 6-foot-3, 220-pound Ford was the best player in the Gulf South Conference. Earning GSC Offensive Player of the Year honors, the New Orleans native hauled in 69 passes for 1,026 yards and 13 touchdowns. During his freshman campaign, Ford had 41 receptions for 526 yards and four touchdowns as he was named the conference’s Freshman of the Year in 2009. A year later he caught 24 passes for 328 yards and four touchdowns.
Ford is a 6’2 wide out and has been posting forty times in the 4.4’s and 4.5’s according to his trainers. So this is a huge opportunity for Ford. Ford will come into Dolphins practice today and shine. I would not be surprised if he didn’t end up boarding a plane out of Miami.Do you follow the NFL Draft?
