Denzel Ward 2018 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Strengths, Weaknesses & Player Comparison

Check out Ohio State CB Denzel Ward's 2018 NFL Draft Scouting Report and player profile featuring strengths, weaknesses, player comparisons and projections. The cocky cornerback was a monster in the Big 10 this year, racking up 15 pass deflections and a pick while completely locking down one half of the field. He’s electric, smart, and will be bonafide #1 CB in the NFL. Despite his lack of size, he’s a very physical corner and isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty. He should be one of the first 10 picks in the upcoming NFL draft, but the only question for Ward at this point is what team he’s going to dominate on.
