Overview

Ryan Ramczyk may be the most interesting prospect in this draft class. Ramczyk’s journey to becoming an elite prospect was anything but typical. He attended three different schools before finally finding his way to Wisconsin in 2015. Before he became a widely known wrecking ball type of lineman, Ramczyk was a second team All-WIAC (DIII) performer. Since those days, we have seen Ramczyk blossom into one of the strongest, most physical tackles in this draft class.

His Strengths

If you could draw up a perfect run blocking tackle, he would look very similar to Ramczyk. He possess freakish natural strength and has the athleticism to explode off the ball. He routinely makes the initial contact on defenders, causing them to lose balance and be taken completely out of position. He also uses that athleticism to climb the ladder to the second level with ease. He plays with the nastiness that is needed to be a successful offensive lineman, but also shows advanced understanding and football knowledge. He is a very versatile player who could succeed on either side of the line, and excels in everything from run blocking to lead blocking on screen plays.

Area’s of improvement

One thing that can be said about Ramczyk is that he is unfinished in terms of his pass protection. As a player with limited “big time” college football experience, it is not surprising to see him be a touch behind in this area. He played in an offense that thrives on a power run game and rarely asked him to pass block for extended periods of time. It will be interesting to see how he holds up against the best edge rushers in the world. That being said, he has all the tools necessary to improve in this area and immediately make an impact on his new team.
