I haven’t seen him mentioned for the Bucs before, but it makes sense: the Bucs need a pass-rusher, as is very well known, and Ferrell is nothing if not that. At 6’5”, 260 lbs. the underclassman has a great frame to be a terror around the edge, and he has solid production with 8.5 sacks this year.
That production won’t blow anyone away, but it’s good enough, and Ferrell has the athleticism to be more productive in the NFL. He was also limited a bit by playing on a three-man line with some frequency.
Position-wise, Ferrell could do well at defensive end or even stand-up linebacker, but he could also slide inside and play some defensive tackle or 3-4 end on passing downs. That’ll appeal to the Bucs, who’ve been moving to more 3-4 looks the last year or so.
