Jaylon Ferguson: Combine invite pulled
Ferguson had his invitation to the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine rescinded Wednesday after a background check revealed that he was convicted of simple battery as a freshman in college, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
According to Rapoport, the NFL has a policy that disallows players from attending the combine "if a background check reveals a conviction of a felony or misdemeanor involving violence." Ferguson's incident stemmed from a fight at a restaurant when he was a freshman at Louisiana Tech. He went on to set the NCAA's all-time sack record during his career as a Bulldog. Ferguson has the talent to warrant a Day 2 selection, but the details from the NFL's background check will lead to teams taking a closer look at his off-field activities before spending a selection on him.
