(Steven Erler-USA TODAY Sports)


Strengths:

  • Highly productive
  • Size
  • Strength
  • Quick diagnosis
  • Plays with forward lean and powerful rip-and-run move around the edge
  • Varies pass-rush approach with go-to moves for all angles of attack
  • Sets the edge

Weaknesses:

  • Weight shot up recently
  • Extra mass hurt burst
  • Pursuit speed
  • Upright in attack
  • Run support will need work in NFL

Analysis: Ferguson is the all-time sack leader in college football history so his production speaks for itself. He has average athletic traits but benefits from an instinctive pass-rush approach and knows how to get after the quarterback. He has not tested well in the lead-up to the NFL Draft, which may affect his draft stock. Ferguson does play with physicality/toughness at the point of attack but will need to show that his lack of edge speed will still translate to the pros.

Size: 6’5 271lbs

Draft Rank: Top 5 edge

NFL Comparison: Marcus Davenport
