Jerome Ford's draft stock rose during the 2022 Senior Bowl, putting him in a solid position to earn Day 2 draft capital come April. PFF NFL draft analyst Mike Renner went as far as tabbing Ford a top-five back in the class, and the praise is warranted based on how he showed out his senior season.

The Cincinnati Bearcats running back posted the ninth-highest dominator rating (27%) in the class on the back of 1,300 rushing yards and 19 touchdowns.

The Alabama transfer's 21% career dominator rating hardly does him justice considering he played alongside other NFL backs until this past season.

However, he failed to follow up his all-star game performance with worthwhile combine testing. His 4.46 40-yard dash (8th percentile) was blown out of the water by other backs in the class. But what was more alarming was Ford's lack of explosiveness in the jumping drills.

The Bearcats back's 31″ vertical (14th percentile) and 118″ broad jump (54th percentile) does create concern that Ford won't be able to stand out in a crowded backfield. He ran into similar issues in college, based on his lowly career college dominator rating.

Jerome Ford selected No. 156 by Cleveland Browns

The Cleveland Browns have drafted RB Jerome Ford with the No. 156 pick in the 2022 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

The 5-foot-10, 210-pound back from Cincinnati was a first-team All-American Athletic Conference award winner in 2021. He had 215 carries with 1,319 rushing yards and 19 touchdowns on the season. Scouts consider him a well-built back for the NFL with subpar vision and creativity. He will most likely serve as a special teams or practice squad member, so he doesn't hold a lot of value in fantasy leagues.
