Louisiana Tech pass rusher Jaylon Ferguson is collecting the frequent-flier miles this month. He will visit more than half of the teams in the NFL before draft day.
Ferguson is in Buffalo today, Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports, with the Giants up next, followed by the Colts and Eagles later in the week. The Cowboys, Titans and Rams are on Ferguson’s itinerary next week.
Ferguson has 17 visits, according to a source, and could have two more. He worked out for seven teams.
The Ravens, Bucs, Raiders, Saints, Chargers and Jaguars also are among the teams Ferguson will visit.
NFL teams didn’t get much time to interview Ferguson at the Scouting Combine after a partial ban. The league allowed Ferguson to rotate through tables of eight (two representatives from four teams) every 15 minutes for two hours.
Ferguson did not get to fully participate in the Combine after a background check revealed he was involved in a fight his freshman year that resulted in a simple battery conviction. He also was charged with public intoxication in college.
Ferguson set the NCAA record for career sacks with 47 and finished third in all-time tackles for loss with 68.
