TE Brandon Ford Clemson (7rd/UFA)

I wanted to bring a prospect to the board's attention as a possible #3 TE or DW's replacement: Brandon Ford. Not likely to be drafted, as he wasn't even invited to the combine, but performed really well at the Clemson pro day. He's a converted WR with size, and first made an impression when I was watching Xavier Rhodes versus Clemson. He made a few plays that game. It's hard to see much else from him, but here are a few highlights on YouTube (for what its worth). 8TDs on the year. He's a newly converted TE who played WR his 1st 2 years at school, and has similar size to DW.

This kid can be better and he is 6'4''. A 7th rounder wouldn't hurt on him.

Yes, that would be nice. But seeing as how the league isn't allowing us use all our 14 picks consecutively, starting with the first overall, I figured we might as well look at some later round prospects. It's very rare that you go into the draft, look at a 7th rd. prospect, and declare that he will definitively be better than a starting player in the league (DW is now that).
