Overview

Ravanesi was a solid, four-year starter for the Salukis. He has average size and athleticism, along with a powerful leg for the position. He can drive the ball in tough weather conditions. He has solid mechanics and get-off times, and though he had three punts blocked during his career, it doesn't appear to be a chronic problem. He has a live leg and can out-kick his coverage at times but isn't always consistent with his hang time and distance. He is adept at angle punting, as well as dropping the ball inside the 20-yard line. He also has experience as a placekicker (high school) and might be able to fill in as an emergency kicker. Ravanesi has the talent to develop into an NFL punter but isn't an elite prospect.

Analysis

Strengths

Ravanesi has a big leg and consistently booms the ball. Shows very good mechanics and gets the ball off of his foot fast. Has an accurate leg and angles punts to trap opponents inside the 20-yard line. Versatile enough to be a place kicker in a bind.

Weaknesses

Lacks adequate height and does not have the athleticism to salvage the play after an errant snap. Kicks too many line drives past his kick coverage and does not consistently get good hang time.
