05/08/2014 - 2014 DRAFT SCOUT FINAL TOP 100: 75/8. *Ego Ferguson, DT, LSU, 6-3, 315, 5.13, 2-3...Played as a reserve until his junior season last year when he took advantage of opportunity to collect 58 tackles, 3.5 for a loss and one sack. Ferguson flashes enough ability to make it seem that he should, could, would be more productive if -- fill in the blank. He is stout from head to toe with enough quickness, flexibility, strength and length to invite use at multiple up front positions. Frankly: Ferguson appears to be journeyman NFL material with a somewhat robotic manner that will get him only so far against an NFL full of great athletes. - Frank Cooney, NFLDraftScout.com
04/29/2014 - Five players who should be on the New York Giants' draft radar: DT Ego Ferguson, LSU: The Giants rotate their defensive line as much as anyone in the league and with the loss of Linval Joseph (and Justin Tuck), the club will be looking to add young talent up front. Despite a first name that indicates otherwise, Ferguson was overshadowed a bit by former teammate Anthony "Freak" Johnson while at LSU but was the more productive player last season -- his first as a starter. Ferguson relies on his athleticism to this point, flashing quickness and strength to zip through gaps as well as the hustle to pursue. He is far from a finished product at this point, however, struggling with leverage incorporating limited hand-technique in his play to disengage once opponents latch on. The tools are clearly in place for Ferguson to develop into a starter and the Giants have shown a willingness to draft based on upside (especially along the defensive line) before. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
04/09/2014 - 2014 Pro Days: LSU's Zach Mettenberger rusty but recovering...LSU's talented defensive tackles, Anthony Johnson and Ego Ferguson, also put forth contrasting workouts. Unfortunately for Ferguson, he didn't show a great deal of explosiveness otherwise, registering a relatively average 29.5" vertical jump and 9'3" broad jump on Wednesday. He was also clocked at 7.94 seconds in the 3-cone drill, a time which would have beaten only Notre Dame's Louis Nix III among the 16 defensive tackles who tested in this drill in Indianapolis. The former Irish nose guard, for the sake of comparison, weighed in at 331 pounds, 29 pounds heavier than Ferguson. While Ferguson's workout wasn't eye-popping, he did demonstrate his health, which some questioned after he missed the Combine workout due to a right ankle injury. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
12/31/2013 - LSU DT Ego Ferguson won't play in Outback Bowl...LSU junior defensive tackle Ego Ferguson did not travel with the team and will not play in LSU's Outback Bowl game against Iowa Wednesday, a source close to the situation said Tuesday. The source would not disclose the reason for Ferguson's absence but said he was not suspended or missing for academic reasons. The loss of Ferguson, the team's fifth leading tackler, is a blow to the Tiger defense which has been shaky most of the season.
Ferguson, who is from Mims, Fla., was having his best season in his first as a full time starter. He was an All-SEC honorable mention who started all 12 games and had 58 tackles, with 3.5 for loss, including one sack. Ferguson, who is 6-feet-3 and 309 pounds, also broke up three passes, had three quarterback hurries and blocked a field goal attempt against Ole Miss. - Jim Kleinpeter, The Times-Picayune
