Jacoby Ford, wide receiver of the Oakland Raiders, could be a key player for the next season in 2013. Ford, unable to play in the 2012 season due to injury, will get a chance to prove that he could be one of the best this season.
Bleacher Report released an article on Friday stating that Oakland’s wide receiver, Jacoby Ford, could be a nice addition, since coming back from injury, to new offensive coordinator Greg Olson’s attack.
The article mentions how Ford could attribute to the Raider's offense in many ways. The player is a great slot receiver. This aspect of using the slot receiver is the new passing game the NFL is evolving into.
The slot receiver position has been one of the vital positions for most teams, since most squads have been converting into a passing attacking team more than a running attacking team.
Ford is also a great track star, thus being able to beat many secondary players from many defenses in the league. The man can go deep fast or even faster than any wider receiver in the NFL league.
Ford is also great with creative plays such as reverses or end-arounds. His running ability from the back is not bad at all.
In 2010, Ford ran the ball 10 times for 155 yards. He also had seven first downs and two touchdowns when he ran that season.
Anyway, Jacoby Ford is back and the Raiders Nation will have to see how Offensive Coordinator will use him for this coming season.
