Who doesn't love an old-fashioned small school receiver? The NFL certainly does, and Jazz Ferguson may be the next big thing. After just one real year of production, the former-LSU Tiger has decided to forgo his senior year at Northwestern State and declare for the 2019 NFL Draft. Jazz announced his decision on Tuesday via his Twitter account.

Ferguson, 21, was a four-star commit coming out of high school and had only caught two balls for 17 yards in his two years at LSU, before going to Northwestern State and putting up hellacious numbers as the Demons number one wide receiver. In 2018, Ferguson hauled in 66 receptions for 1,117 yards and 13 touchdowns. The 21-year-old receiver has been through his fair share of adversity over the last few years and is taking a risk heading to the NFL with only one year of production, but Ferguson is a guy the NFL is going to like.
At 6-foot-5 223-lbs, the former Demon has elite physical traits, paired with quality hands, and great physicality. Jazz will catch scouts eyes with his measurables alone, but when they turn on his 2018 tape they will fall even more in love with the young receiver.
