Gets to the second level in the run game. Excellent drive blocker. Handles stunts and twist. Understands how to pass off his man. Can find and engage his assignment on the move.
His arms could be longer. Just a wee bit on the short side. This could very well relegate Ryan to the right side where his skill set would be best utilized. Can get shocked by rangy ends who can get their hands on him before he can engage. Occasionally gets caught too vertical. Doesn’t have plus lateral movement to make up ground.
Here is Ramczyk with a excellent rep against Taco Charlton, the likely first round prospect. Good technique makes Charlton rush up the field and past the pocket.
Ramczyk is one of the few tackles in this class that is a “true” tackle in the NFL. The former Wisconsin Badger has a NFL tackle’s body at 6’6 310lbs but moves very smooth for his size and has good footwork to match with his powerful upper and lower body.
