Pos: 
Record-setting pass rusher who shows great athleticism and upside potential. Agile, uses his hands to protect himself and breaks down well. Fluidly changes direction out of a three-point stance or standing over tackle, chases the action hard and shows ability in pursuit. Explosive, bends his knees and consistently plays with proper pad level. Rarely off his feet, possesses a closing burst of speed and wraps up tackling. Displays a variety of moves to get off blocks. Consistently around the action.
Neg: 
Lacks strength at the point of attack, struggles to get off blocks and may be a liability against the run at the next level. Possesses poor instincts and slow to locate the ball.
Analysis: 
Ferguson is an athletic pass rusher who constantly disrupts the action up the field. He may experience bumps in the road before he develops into a complete three-down defender at the next level, but Ferguson has great upside.
