Jaylon Ferguson NFL Combine

CBS Sports reported the NFL stated Ferguson’s invitation to the combine has been rescinded after a background check showed he had once been convicted of simple battery. The report added the conviction was the result of a fight at a McDonald’s in Ruston during his freshman year in college.


Under NFL policy, a player can be disinvited from the event "if a background check reveals a conviction of a felony or misdemeanor involving violence."

Ferguson recorded 45 sacks during four years with the Bulldogs, breaking Terrell Suggs’ record of 44.

According to the report, Ferguson remains eligible for the NFL draft. It is held from February 26 through March 4 in Indianapolis, IN.
