Pittsburgh this year has a great deal of talent on their defense, but bring the fear of offensive players like Paris Ford does. He's an athletic 6' and 190 lbs. safety with a muscular build and a malicious playing style. He's the scariest and most powerful hitter in this draft and is one of the few players that I have watched that makes me cringe every time he tackles a player. He comes in like a Tomahawk Cruise Missile that's about to hit his target and will completely obliterate any quarterback, running back, wide receiver, or tight end that he locks on to. He's excellent at hitting players at angles when making a tackle which why he can be such a devastating hitter. He has knocked out plenty of footballs in coverage and caused a lot of fumbles with his hitting. He keeps receivers and tight ends on the lookout over the middle as they fear getting tackled by him and it can cause players drop balls occasionally. Very instinctual in coverage with excellent speed and agility to cover receivers in the slot and at least match-up well with tight ends. He's good at attacking the football in the air, usually knocking it out. Plays like a mad man and has one of the hottest motors among the defensive. Good hands for a safety and never is too far away from the football in either run defense or coverage. Good at tracking the football when it's in the air and fighting for it at the top of the route will be an asset on deep routes. Good at reading and reacting to zone reads and outside hand off's quickly and it's usually where shines as a hitter (Watch his hit against Virginia Tech). Great in zone coverage where his explosion out of his stance and ability to recognize short hook and crossing patterns can make him a dangerous safety to make a mistake against. He's not far too lean in his frame to be playing the way he does and will need to add at least 20 lbs. of muscle if he wishes to have a full career in the NFL. His torpedo style of tackling comes from his lack of size and muscle in his frame to consistently bring down ball carriers. He has struggle in coverage against receivers and tight ends that can out reach him and bully him out of a play and if he can't knock the ball it with his head, he's relatively hopeless at creating an incomplete pass. He drew plenty of flags in 2019 for targeting and while that's not a penalty in the NFL, teams are still weary about drafting a safety that just tries to hurt people. Most of his interceptions come from tipped passes and bad throws and I would like to see him him jump routes and get balls at their high point more often. He plays on defense that features a lot of talent all around and clearly has benefited from it so far in his career. I think most of his problems come from lack bulk and strength in his frame and if he can gain some weight while still retaining his athletic ability and hit power, he could jump up into the 1st round of the draft, he's that talented. He's a passionate player with a lot fire in his belly and any defensive coach with a good between his ears could see that this guy can potentially transform your defense if he fixes his issues. He's a Day 2 player in this draft at the minimum and could shock a few people in the draft if he impresses in interviews.
