The New York Giants are in desperate need of edge rushers, so it should come as little surprise that they’ve had eyes on Louisiana Tech linebacker/defensive end Jaylon Ferguson, who set the all-time NCAA record for career sacks (45) this past season.

Many view Ferguson as a top prospect, but because he played and dominated for a smaller school, he’s not quite as high on the draft boards as he likely deserves.

Heading into the Senior Bowl, Ferguson has a chance to shed that small school label with a big game against top talent, and through quality meetings with interested teams.

Unfortunately for Ferguson, his meeting with the Giants may not have come across the way he intended after informing the team he’s not really a lover of the cold weather.

“City life is not really for me, but if I have to go play football there I’ll go play football there,” Ferguson said via the New York Post. “It’s all going to be the same. Football field still gonna be green, still gonna have 100 yards.

“I don’t like the cold weather, but I’ll play anywhere. I’m not really a cold-weather guy though.”

This past season, the Giants finished tied for 30th in the league with just 30 sacks, so a player like Ferguson, if he can prove to be equally as dangerous against Power 5 players, would seem to be an ideal match. However, his complete lack of enthusiasm about potentially playing in New York has to raise at least one red flag.
