    For some reason TJ Ward is gaining popularity in a lot of Packers mock drafts. One of the last remaining elite Oregon secondary players which included Chung and Byrd, Ward is an explosive hitter with unique ball skills. He's a bit undisciplined but definitely has the talent to be a good football player.

    I cannot believe Robinson gets up from that hit in the first video

    Damn, he looks like a real player to me, what rounds is he supposed to be going in?

    He's projected to go in rounds 3-4. However he may go a bit lower since I believe there are prospects more NFL ready than him. Still wouldn't be disappointed if the Pack gave him a chance.

    yeah I remember watching him in that cal game couple years ago, he was dominant.

    "Ward lacks height and overall size. Can be out-muscled by bigger receivers and struggles to disengage from blockers in run support. Does not have the explosion and ball skills to be a true centerfielder. There are questions about his durability after two major knee surgeries."
