Scout.com live evaluation: Fred Ward has the frame to play
multiple positions on the next level. He is a legit 6' 3" to 6' 4",
260-pounder who can move well for his size.
Ward has made an impact on both sides of the ball for Aberdeen. He lines up with his cousin Channing Ward at the defensive end positions. Fred projects to move down to defensive tackle or offensive tackle on the next level. He actually looked very comfortable playing right tackle and stayed with his blocks. On the defensive side of the ball his strength is stopping the run but he does have some nice moves and does get some pressure on the QB too.
Scout.com was in attendance for Ward's game against Winona where he recorded 7 tackles and 1 sack.
