Jihad Ward Career

In order to boost his academic performance, Ward enrolled at Globe Institute of Technology for a period of two years. In 2013, he participated in seven games and recorded 26 tackles, including three for losses, and two sacks.

It was in the year 2014 when he made the move to the University of Illinois. In the fourth game of the season, he was given the nod to lead the defense at the end of the defensive line. He recorded 51 tackles, three sacks, four fumble recoveries (which lead the conference), two forced fumbles, and one pass defensed during the course of the game.

As a senior, he started each of the 12 games he played in, contributing to the defense in both the end and tackle positions. He finished with 53 tackles, 1.5 sacks, 2 passes defended, 1 forced fumble, and 1 fumble recovery. He also recovered 1 fumble. He had a career high with 11 tackles, including nine solo stops, in the game played against the University of Iowa.

During the two most recent years of his career, he recorded 104 tackles, 4.5 sacks, 5 fumble recoveries, 3 forced fumbles, and 3 pass defenses.

When Ward was graduating from college, the vast majority of observers anticipated that he would be selected in the second or third round. Although some experts have stated that he possesses above-average athletic ability for a man of his size, that he can play both end spots in a 3-4 or 4-3, that he is large enough to play defensive tackle in a 4-3, and that he has the potential to become a quality pass rusher in the NFL, he was also regarded as a developmental project who requires improvement in his power and has inconsistent balance in contact.

Ward was given an invitation to participate in the NFL scouting combine and also took part in Illinois’ Pro Day, where he even managed to improve on the majority of his combine numbers. At the Pro Day hosted by Illinois, which was directed by head coach Lovie Smith, scouts and representatives from each of the NCAA’s 32 teams were present. Ward’s performance drew the attention of defensive line coaches from multiple NFL teams, including the New England Patriots, Cincinnati Bengals, and Houston Texans.
