Pos: 
Explosive receiver prospect with outstanding measurables. Possesses outstanding length, gets vertical over opponents and comes away with the high throw. Exposes himself to the big hit in order to make the reception, displays both focus and concentration and consistently grabs the pass from the air. Effectively makes the deep reception at full speed. Uses his frame to shield away opponents.
Neg: 
Lacks a quick release off the line and does not display a burst. More of a one-speed receiver who really doesn't play to his 40 time. Double-catches too many throws. Has a limited route tree.
Analysis: 
A once-highly rated recruit, Ferguson made his way from LSU to Northwestern State and watched his game take off last season. He's a great talent but is rough around the edges and needs a lot of work on his game. Ferguson comes with great upside but needs to show he's mature and can handle the NFL.
