STRENGTHS - Ware has the quickness and explosive ability to hit the holes quickly after the hand-off & has very quick feet that enable him to make quick cuts, both when running the ball and when running routes. Ware is a tough physical runner, he is not afraid of contact and will lower his shoulder and churn his legs for the extra yards. Ware is an asset out of the backfield on screen plays, he has the ability to catch the ball and turn quickly up-field and does so smoothly.
WEAKNESSES - Ware needs to run lower to the ground and while he does lower his should upon contact, he needs to run lower from the start. Although he is quick to hit the holes once he gets to the 2nd level he does not have another gear and therefore he will not be a big play threat. He is also not an elusive runner and therefore he is more of a north/south runner than east/west and Ware needs to cut more consistently. He tends to make one cut to the open hole and then lower instead of making any more cutbacks. Blocking skills looked poor on film. This could either be due to the lack of skill in that area or the lack of effort to throw a block.
SUMMARY - Ware is a tough, physical runner. He has the ability to hit the open hole quickly and will lower his shoulder and keep his legs moving to pick up the extra yardage. Ware could be a reliable option on short yard and goal line situations because of his toughness. Ware's lack of elusiveness makes him more of a North/South runner over an East/West runner. He can be used as a target out of the backfield on screen passes as he has the ability to catch the ball and turn simultaneously to give him more opportunity to gain YAC. Because of his lack of a 2nd gear he is not a guy that is going to be a big play threat, and once he makes his first cutback that tends to be it. He will need to become much more consistent in that aspect in order to be a more productive player at the next level. His blocking skills will also need to improve if he's going to be used in more situations than short yardage and goal line situations. Overall Ware is a guy that will give you toughness and pick up the tough short yards and also a target as a receiver out of the backfield. He projects as a developmental player and has an opportunity to see time on some 3rd down situations.
