MOBILE, Ala. (AP) -- Dee Ford has picked up where he left off during the season.
The Auburn defensive end who sacked Florida State's Jameis Winston twice in the BCS championship game has blown by offensive tackles a number of times in practices leading up to Saturday's Senior Bowl.
The 6-foot-2, 243-pound Ford is projected as either an outside linebacker or defensive end in the NFL.
South coach Gus Bradley of the Jacksonville Jaguars says Ford showcases his love for the game on the field. Bradley says that ability to rush passers off the edge "really pops out for all the coaches."
Ford has met with such NFL head coaches as the Steelers' Mike Tomlin and Jets' Rex Ryan. Both were looking at him as a linebacker.
Ford says he'll "be prepared for anything."
