S Jimmie Ward Northern Illinois
Jimmie Ward could be a complete safety in the NFL. He’s only 5’11″ but could play either SS or FS with a little more time in the classroom. He is quick, aware in coverage, and an active playmaker. Ward is another player who could see his stock rise or fall based on his combine/pro day performance. I think he would be starter at FS for the Cowboys, instantly upgrading the pass defense. Be sure to pay attention to Ward on Tuesday and on his Pro Day to see which direction his stock takes.
