Ford, 26, was a fourth-round pick of the Raiders out of Clemson back in 2010. He is a classic Al Davis-pick given that he has a track background and posted a 4.28 forty at the 2010 Scouting Combine.
Ford has yet to develop into a reliable weapon as a receiver. Last year, he appeared in 14 games for the Raiders and caught just 13 receptions for 99 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
It’s worth noting that Ford was the worst rated kicker returner in the league last year, according to Pro Football Focus.
We had him listed as the No. 50 player in our Best Available Free Agents list.
