This makes no sense. Jon Ford doesn't count because his career hasnt panned out the way many thought? And if he was overrated doesnt that imply that many had him highly rated? So we got Jon Ford, a highly rated guy from Dillard is what I get out of this.
Hes the exception not the rule

Ford was a 3* DT and will be a multiple years starter here so his careeer has actually gone as well or better than his ranking.
This right here. Time and time again, this fan base sets unreal expectations for a kid because they’re from south Florida. Most of our kids have played better or on par for there ranking.

Ford had a great game against VT last year when we were down some other guys on the DL. He was never going to be Willis or RJ even but can certainly be a positive force in the rotation this year for us. He's a grown ass man now..
He needed a redshirt in 2017 but now that he came back for his 5th year he got that redshirt basically.

He had an impressive spring camp, didn't he? I think I remember D$ speaking on his strong performance.

Jon Ford that hasn't done crap for 5year and was vastly over rated coming out, that jon ford? Name another one and now name all the players that have gone to fsu etc.
Different coaching staff and the players are coming out more developed. But Jon Ford still came here and has done what is asked of him. He exceeded my expectations and has become a good piece for us.

I agree ! And who ranked them high if they have high rankings? 247 rankings and the coaches vision for the players are different. Ford exceeded my expectations. The coaches utilize him in a way where he is performing on a talented line.
