Selected by San Francisco 49ers
Round 7, pick 25 (226 overall)
BIO: Three-year that posted 62/16.5/3 as a senior, 31/2.5/1 as a junior and 34/10/1 as a sophomore.

POSITIVES: Competitive, hard-working lineman with adequate size. Plays with good leverage, works his hands and rarely off his feet. Possesses a nice first step off the snap, slides off blocks and stays with the action.

NEGATIVES: Gets wired in blocks and handled at the point. Lacks the great burst of closing speed and only a marginal athlete. Limited pass-rushing skills.

ANALYSIS: An overachiever who plays hard until the whistle blows, Ferrara has been a solid college defender that does not project all that well to the next level. Could fit in as a backup on the inside or possibly play the three technique.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
