2019 Draft: Rnd 1 Pick 4
Jayden Wayne's frame, coordination and length remind us a bit of Clelin Ferrell. Like Ferrell, Wayne has the room to grow into a 4-3 defensive end. Ferrell was a more productive pass rusher at the high school level prior to missing his senior year with a torn ACL. Wayne was a two-way player as a receiver/tight end and pass rusher prior to enrolling at IMG Academy before his senior year.
