Former Illinois defensive lineman Jihad Ward is looking to make a name for himself before the 2016 NFL Draft.

Consider it done.

Ward, who tips the scales at 296 pounds, posted a video to Instagram of himself throwing down a reverse dunk.

Ward stands 6-foot-5, but it's impressive to see a guy as big as he is do something like this.

In two seasons in Champaign, Ward collected 12 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks.
