BIO: Started 11 games as a senior after seeing time with the first team the prior two seasons. Suffered major knee injuries during his freshman and sophomore campaigns.
POSITIVES: Explosive lineman best in a small area. Quick off the ball, immediately gets hands into defenders and works until the whistle blows. Blocks with leverage, seals defenders from the action and turns them off the ball. Alert, works well with teammates and always looks for someone to hit.
NEGATIVES: Over-extends or lunges into blocks, which hurts his ability to finish. Lacks the dominant base and footwork in space.
ANALYSIS: A scrappy, hard-working blocker with great work ethic, Ferentz has the mental intangibles to play at the next level, yet prior injuries will raise red flags.
