3. Keith Ford – Sweet Potatoes
Potatoes of the sweet variety just make people happy. Covered in marshmallows, this orange batch of goodness is a hearty side dish that can easily be the highlight of the meal if done correctly. It only makes sense to compare them to Keith Ford.
At 5-foot-11 and 215 pounds, No. 7 has been rumbling through defenses all season. He’s a hard man to take down and, like sweet potatoes, adds a whole other dimension to the offensive scheme. The Texas A&M offense has been known for its aerial displays under Kevin Sumlin, but Ford provides a good balance on the ground. His physicality is the perfect complement to the rest of the Texas A&M offense.
Not only do defenses have to worry about stopping Christian Kirk and Damion Ratley, but they must also worry about this behemoth of a back. While you have to worry about this behemoth of a dish.
