Pos: 
Terrific college pass rusher effective out of a three-point stance as well as standing over tackle. Fast and fluid in every direction, outstanding in pursuit and plays with consistent pad level and leverage. Fires up the field off the edge, creates a lot of pressure and forces the quarterback to step up into the pocket or move off his spot. Nasty, attacks opponents and displays a variety of moves to get off blocks. Stays on his feet, breaks down well and plays with balance. Displays good hand technique, fights throughout the action and runs over blockers to make plays. Makes an incredible amount of athletic plays on the field.
Neg: 
Displays an average closing burst. Often slow to shed blocks.
Analysis: 
Ferrell was a terrific college pass rusher at Clemson the past three seasons and comes with Pro Bowl potential at the next level. He needs to complete his game but is a three-down defender who will quickly produce on Sundays if properly coached.
