D’Brickashaw Ferguson Biography
D'Brickashaw Ferguson was born December 10, 1983 in Freeport, New York and is a left tackle for the New York Jets. Nicknamed Brick, D'Brick or The Pain Train, Ferguson was the Jets' first selection in the 2006 NFL Draft.
Considered an undersized offensive tackle after playing at 295 pounds during his senior year at Virginia, Ferguson officially weighed in at 312 for the NFL combine. As an offensive tackle, Ferguson's talent is found in his lower body strength, athleticism and flexibility. This athleticism and flexibility is further evidenced in his attaining a black belt in Shotokan karate and brown belt in taekwondo. Adding to that ability is his natural build, as Ferguson has an armspan of 87 inches (221 cm).
Ferguson was one of six players the NFL invited to New York for the 2006 NFL Draft events. He was selected 4th overall by the New York Jets. The last time the Jets used their first pick on an offensive tackle was 1988, when they selected Dave Cadigan of USC at No. 8. Ferguson was the only offensive tackle selected in the first round of the 2006 NFL Draft.
On July 26, 2006, Ferguson signed a five-year deal with the Jets that was similar to the $35 million deal that 2005s No. 4 pick, Cedric Benson, signed with the Chicago Bears. Designated as Jason Fabini's successor, Ferguson started every game at left tackle for the Jets since the beginning of the 2006 NFL season. On January 8, 2010 Miami Dolphins Tackle Jake Long withdrew from the 2010 Pro Bowl due to injuries and D'Brickashaw was named as his replacement. It is his first Pro Bowl invite.
