Projected by many to be a mid-round pick, Ego Ferguson went in the middle of the 2nd round. He'll make his new home in Chicago.
Ego's a well-built DT prospect that looks to be a good 3-tech in the future. Inconsistency plagued him at times at LSU, but his athletic upside and size make him an intriguing NFL prospect.
A fun Twitter nugget on Ego:
Bears get Ego Ferguson-LSU Run stuffer deluxe. This makes it 11straight years LSU has a DL. drafted. A record no school can touch today.— Michael Detillier (@MikeDetillier) May 10, 2014
An "E-GO! E-GO! E-GO!" chant erupted at Chicago's draft party.
