Louisiana Tech EDGE Jaylon Ferguson to visit Los Angeles Rams

Could the edge rusher be a possibility for the Rams at pick #31?

NCAA Football: Senior Bowl Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

Chugging along the pre-draft circuit, Louisiana Tech Bulldogs edge rusher Jaylon Ferguson is set to visit the Los Angeles Rams next week, per NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero:

Ferguson — who was a senior in 2018 — had an insane amount of production in his four years at Louisiana Tech. Ferguson totaled 67.5 tackles-for-loss as well as 45 sacks. Ferguson was clearly extremely productive in college, though his abysmal 3-cone and shuttle times at his pro day are certainly something that’ll push him down draft boards:

Ferguson clearly lacks the necessary athleticism that most starters in the NFL have, though his production ultimately states otherwise. Ferguson was mocked in the first or second-round of mock drafts generally all offseason, though it seems most have soured since as Ferguson is no longer a regular in the first-round of mocks.

Being a Senior, Ferguson attended the Reese’s Senior Bowl, automatically qualifying him as a prime prospect for General Manger Les Snead.

NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein compared Ferguson to 2018 first-round pick Marcus Davenport, whom the New Orleans Saints traded up to draft.
