Clelin Ferrell Stats

Aside from Nick Bosa, one could argue that Clelin Ferrell might be the best edge defender in the 2019 draft class. The 21-year-old has an explosive first step off the snap and plays with a combination of strength and agility rarely seen at his position.


That skill set was consistently on display during Ferrell's redshirt junior year with the 2019 College Football Playoff Champion Clemson Tigers. Ferrell notched a career-high 11.5 sacks and 20 tackles for loss that helped earn him First-Team All-American honors in the 2018 season. 

Many scouts believe that Ferrell is the complete package at defensive end, capable of effectively rushing the passer and stuffing the run. If he plays to his potential, the Clemson product could develop into a perennial double-digit sack artist in the NFL.

You can never have too many pass rushers in today's NFL, and elite pass-rushing talent like Ferrell doesn't come around often. So, it's highly unlikely that the Clemson product falls out of the Top-15 selections of this year's draft. The Raiders, who own the No. 4 overall pick, need to fill the defensive void left by Khalil Mack. On the other hand, the Lions and their No. 8 overall pick might need an edge rusher if they're unable to retain Ziggy Ansah in free agency.
