Auburn Tigers defensive end Dee Ford is confident that he could play in a 3-4 defense, despite playing 4-3 at college.

Auburn Tigers defensive end Dee Ford has insisted that he is able to play in a 3-4 defense, despite playing the majority of his college career in a 4-3.

Ford said that even though he may not be up with the specifics of a 3-4 the fact that he is a defensive player and an athlete means that he will not be limited when the draft comes around in May.

"The question that I am being sick of asked," Ford told NBC Sport. "Can I fit in a 3-4 defense?

"Yes, I could fit in a 3-4 defense. I am an athlete that has played defensive end my entire life, that's just the way it is."

Ford and Jadeveon Clowney are thought to be likely high draft picks this season.
