So we've seen Ward play against guys every bit as fast as any SEC team, and we've seen him play at a very high level.

Also, and I've addressed this in previous posts, Ward tested as the much better athlete. 40, vert, broad, 3-cone - all better for Ward.
I think you have to take into consideration that Alabama is loaded on defense and doesn't require one player to do more than what the defense asks him to do. Ward on the other hand, was the only defensive standout at his school and was compelled to try to do more to help his team. He is going to be far more noticable on the field because he had to be. That's the trouble with college ball, it isn't a level playing field.

Ward is certainly a decent prospect but he has some negatives involving size and level of competition. Could he turnout to be the best Safety in the draft, certainly, he might end up being the better pro, but as a prospect, he is still a ways behind Clinton-Dix.
