Texas Tech has six players on the CBS Draft Board with two players projected to be selected by an NFL team in tight end Jace Amaro and wide receiver Eric Ward. Amaro is projected as a first- or second-round pick, while Ward is projected to go in rounds six or seven.
With that said, let’s take a closer look at Ward, a 5-11, 205-pound redshirt senior who the Texans could look at as a late-round selection.
Ward is the 29th-ranked wide receiver on the CBS board, and the Texans could possibly use some better depth or at least competition in the latter wide receiver spots on the roster.
On his draft page, it says of Ward:
“Ward’s numbers speak for themselves, but it is combination of size, strength and athleticism that has scouts intrigued. The well-built Ward is a reliable route-runner and hands-catcher and has the toughness to handle playing the slot at the next level.”
