2019 NFL Draft: NCAA All-Sided Sack Leader reportedly rejected by NFL combine harvester

If Jaylon Ferguson wants to improve his design inventory, he must do so without having to participate in the NFL Combine.

According to, the invitation from Ferguson to the combine was revoked after the former Louisiana Tech Star checked in the background that he had once been convicted of a simple battery. Ferguson's lawsuit came to college during his freshman year of studying after being involved in a fight at a local McDonald's.

Although Ferguson was one of the 338 players Anyone who originally received an invitation to the combine has now dropped to 337 because he is not present.

According to the NFL guideline, a player may be excluded from the event "when a background check reveals the conviction of a crime or offense with use of force". Ferguson is still eligible to draft, but he is not allowed to participate in the Combine running from February 26 to March 4 in Indianapolis.

The NFL's violence policy is the reason why Mississippi State Defensive tackles Jeffery Simmons and US President Preston Williams were not invited to the combine, Ferguson and all players invited to the combine must accept a background check as part of the acceptance of the invitation. At the Ferguson background review, the NFL found that he had been indicted for public poisoning in college.

Although the league found two red flags, there's a chance teams will overlook them, and that's because Ferguson had one of the most decorated careers of a pass rusher in NCAA history. During his four years with Louisiana Tech, Ferguson introduced the NCAA dataset for most sacks with 45that broke Terrell Sugg's old record of 44.

Ferguson is currently expected to go from the late first round to the second or third round of the NFL Draft. In his latest draft,'s senior NFL author Pete Prisco has selected Ferguson in the first round. Click here to see where Prisco will land him.
