Wisconsin tight end Jake Ferguson is known for his famous family and now he’d headed to another. Ferguson was selected by Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys in the fourth round INo. 129 overall) of the NFL draft.
The 6-foot-5, 250-pound Ferguson caught a pass in 47 consecutive games – or each of his Badgers career – and finished with 30+ catches and 300+ receiving yards in four straight years.
In 2021, Ferguson tallied a career-best 46 receptions for 450 yards and three scores. His strong career led to an invitation to attend the NFL scouting combine where he ran the 40-yard dash in 4.81 seconds and did 15 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press.
Ferguson follows in the footsteps of Wisconsin turned NFL tight ends Troy Fumagalli (2018), Lance Kendricks (2011), Garrett Graham (2010) and Travis Beckum (2009) in the last 15 years.
