Ryan Ramcyzk | OT, Wisconsin
Weight: 314 pounds
Mid-Late 1st Round
Technique: Ramczyk’s technique, both on the ground and in pass protection, are among the best, if not the best, in this class. In 2016, he didn’t block like a player who had no former Division I experience.
Several fundamental aspects go into evaluating an offensive tackle’s technique; his awareness of the quarterback, his ability to stay on his toes, and his quickness to get into a stance after the snap, to name a few. But for Ramczyk, one technical trait jumps out immediately. When he’s drafted in April, Ramczyk will instantly be one of the NFL’s most patient left tackles. Patience doesn’t initially sound like a trait for a left tackle, but for one with Ramczyk’s athleticism (more on that later), patience can be used to gain a significant advantage over a pass rusher.
