  Draft Scout by Conference

  Jake Ferguson could have turned pro after the 2020 college football season. Wisconsin's most experienced and accomplished tight end insists he realized long before the Badgers closed a disappointing season in the Duke's Mayo Bowl that he would be back in 2021. "I just didn't feel like it was my last year yet," Ferguson said. "I didn't like 2020. I think it was a pretty easy decision for me." Ferguson shared the news with his teammates, some of whom inquired hesitantly about his future, in the locker room after the 42-28 victory over Wake Forest. He shared his intentions publicly on Jan. 3 on Twitter. Camp is set to start Friday, and Ferguson enters his fifth college season with 23 starts and 34 games played and at least 30 catches in each of the last three seasons after redshirting in 2017.

The 6-foot-5, 242-pound Ferguson is without a doubt the leader of the unit. "This is the first time I've seen him just on a day-to-day basis have the consistency of attitude that he has had," tight ends coach Mickey Turner said during spring ball. "He is making plays at practice. He is doing a lot of things right. He is being a leader. "But every other time I've been with him there was a day or a period where there was a little bit of let-off. He would have to regroup and I would have to bring him up. "He has been an absolute pro from Day 1." In seven games last season, Ferguson finished with 30 catches for 305 yards and four touchdowns. The touchdown mark tied his personal best, set in 13 games in 2018, and his per-game averages of 4.3 catches and 43.6 yards were both personal-best marks. - Journal Sentinel
