Bears selected LSU DT Ego Ferguson with the No. 51 overall pick in the 2014 draft.
Ferguson (6-foot-3, 315) started for just one season in Baton Rouge before turning pro, recording 3.5 tackles for loss and one sack as a redshirt junior. The nose tackle at LSU to Anthony Johnson's three technique, Ferguson is a run clogger who lacks pass-rush ability and needs to get stronger (24 bench-press reps). The defense-needy Bears will need him to make noise as a rookie even though the tape says he'll need time to develop May 9 - 8:40 PM

LSU redshirt junior DT Ego Ferguson declared for the 2014 NFL Draft.

"After talking to my parents and praying about this decision I decided to enter the 2014 NFL draft," he said in an Instagram post. Ferguson (6-foot-3, 309 pounds) missed the Outback bowl on Jan. 1 against Iowa because of an illness. Ferguson doesn't have the physical tools of fellow draft declaree Anthony Johnson, but he was a more consistent player this season. We think Ferguson will go on the draft's second day.

LSU redshirt junior DT Ego Ferguson will likely declare for the NFL following this season, according to draft insider Tony Pauline.

"He is sort of a (Michael) Brockers type player," Pauline said on his podcast. "A good sized athlete who can control gaps and control blockers, but also has enough movement skills to make plays behind the line." LSU defensive linemen have been historically misused in college, but have made a jump in their game in the NFL.
