Jaylon Ferguson Stats
Nearly a quarter of the time Ferguson applied pressure while pass rushing and his stats show. The four-year Bulldog was a game-changer from the minute he entered Lousiana Tech back in 2015 and saved his best for last. Ferguson finished with 65 total tackles, 26 for a loss, and a D-1-leading 17.5 sacks last year. This class is loaded with talented edge rushers, but if you're looking for someone who performed on the field and loaded up the stats, Ferguson if the choice.

Jaylon Ferguson Draft Predictions
Los Angeles Rams (No. 31), New England Patriots (No. 32), Arizona Cardinals (No. 33)
The defending Super Bowl champion Patriots could also snag Ferguson if he drops with Kyle Van Noy and Trey Flowers hitting free agency.
If the Cardinals pass on Nick Bosa, they'll still have the opportunity to draft a proven pass rusher with the first pick in the second round.
