Not fond of that comparison. Ferrell is nowhere near the athlete Jevon Kearse was. Kearse is one of the most athletic defenders to ever play in the SEC or the NFL. A true athletic freak. He started out as a safety and grew into a DE over the course of 4 1/2 years. He still had elite DB athleticism when he was 260 pounds. They don't win in the same ways or share similar traits. Ferrell is closer to Mike Rucker than Jevon Kearse if they want to compare him to a DE from that class. The only edge in this particular draft that even makes a little bit of sense being compared to Kearse is Brian Burns - which oddly was compared to Frank Clark - but even he falls short of that lofty comparison.
