Draft Analysis:

"I had him at the very top of the fourth round. He's a very solid corner. Some even think he can play safety. He's tough." -- Mike Mayock

Overview

In high school, Ryan starred at both quarterback and cornerback on a 7-3 Eastern High School team, throwing for 1,070 yards and eight touchdowns and rushing for 699 yards and nine touchdowns. On defense, he tallied 43 tackles, two tackles-for-loss and five interceptions in earning South Jersey Player of the Year Defensive honors from the Philadelphia Inquirer. As the top rated defensive back in the state of New Jersey, Ryan decided to stay home and attend Rutgers.



He redshirted his first season on campus, and made his debut in 2010. Ryan participated in 11 games, and he recorded 9 tackles, including one for loss, and one pass breakup. In 2011, Ryan moved into a starting role at corner. He played in all 13 games, and tallied 67 tackles (5.5 for loss), two forced fumbles, 13 pass breakups, and three interceptions. He was selected to the All-Big East team. As a redshirt junior in 2012, Ryan logged 94 tackles (5 for loss), 17 pass breakups, and four interceptions in 13 games. Once again, Ryan was an All-Big East selection.

Analysis

Strengths

Good size for a corner. Extremely physical. Active all across the field, and not afraid to come up an participate in the run game. Reckless abandon for his body, but still a sound tackler. Constantly around the football, makes plays on the ball. Intelligent. Experience with both man and zone coverage. Fluid hips.

Weaknesses

Still raw in terms of technique. Lacks blazing speed. As a result, will fly his hips open far to quickly to compensate, leading to a lot of short completions. Will get too grabby and not turn his head to find ball, which will result in penalties in the NFL.

Bottom Line

Teams that value physicality and tackling ability from their corners will surely like Ryan. He's an active, physical player that often finds himself around the football. He's not the fastest, and will need to clean up his technique in order to be successful at the next level, but he is still likely to be a second-day selection.
