They have played 8 sets on the dirt with Ferrer winning 6 of them.
Against Federer, he's only ever won a set off him and whenever he comes close to winning one against him, his balls shrink. And that's even facing Fed in smaller tourneys, so it seems even more unlikely in a big stage. And even if Fed does lose before QF to pave way, he'll then have to face Djokovic or Nadal. With Djokovic; I guess what you say is true to an extent (because of their clay record), but this is a GS were talking about. 5-0 to Novak in slams, with only one set lost. I think the better question to ask is, will Ferrer give a good test against him... because I just don't see Ferrer beating him, especially against an improved Djokovic as of late.

You make it sound like Ferrer is some mug. He is not. This guy only loses to top 4 players at slams these days, it's a safe bet he'll be there well into the second week.
Doesn't matter. Other guys are far more likely to beat him than he ever will members of the top four in Majors (bar Murray at the French).

Besides, other than last year his record at RG has been extremely dodgy.

Also, we've yet to see Ferrer match up against Berdych and co on clay in some time. They've looked more impressive on the surface on its biggest stage recently, so he won't be guaranteed any picnic before the semis.

The draw for this Roland Garros is probably the best chance he'll ever get. He can't draw Djokovic until the semis at the earliest, and he can't draw Nadal until the final, so they'll be facing more quality opponents before they theoretically meet Ferrer. If Djokovic and Nadal go out relatively early (not unthinkable given their respective forms this year), his odds go up substantially.
It is unlikely in my opinion, but not impossible.
The big 3 seem far more beatable than last year, he will have his own quarter (because of Murray's withdrawal)... I don't know how he would do against Federer on clay, honestly, but Fed hasn't been very impressive lately.

He was 2 points away from beating Nadal and took him two sets for the first time in 5 years (I think?). Of course, this is provided that Nadal doesn't suddently play an out-of-this-world tennis because it's the FO, which might very well happen.

Nole would probably be a bigger problem, but then again, I never thought Nole would lose so often this year, so...

He needs some luck, and another thing he needs is to play as he has been playing lately, and not as he was playing earlier this season. Otherwise it won't even be Nadal or Djokovic taking him out, it might be anyone else, really.

His best chance of beating a top 3 guy would be against Federer, but even then it would be like 6-3, 5-7, 6-4, 6-2.
