Here in Cleveland most people are in a daze of sheer and utter joy. It's a bit less exciting as a 9ers fan. Cleveland acquired the top cb in the draft, Buffalo's 2015 #1 pick, AND Johnny "short stuff" (who could literally be mistaken for the "Brownie" logo/mascot.
Count me as surprised that Baalke took a short man with little hands and stubby arms who won't be cleared to play for 2-3 weeks. (mostly kidding there)
That said...many people at this site were in love with Jason Verret...What I'm reading about Ward sounds like he is a Verret who is better at tackling and able to play more positions. So, no burning effigies just yet.
One question...following the AJJ oof-da and now the Jimmy "short stuff" pick...I realized that in stature they both have a lot in common with Baalke...does Baalke have a secret desire to see players that are smaller than your average bear succeed?
