Father, Derrick Ramsey, was a tight end with the Raiders and Patriots (1978-1985). Redshirted in 2009. Started 10 of 13 games in 2010 and recorded 42 receptions for 527 yards (12.5-yard average) and seven touchdowns; also returned 15 kickoffs for 380 yards (25.3). Missed time during 2011 spring practice because of torn rib cartilage, then tore his right labrum during training camp. In the fall, started all 13 games and caught 61 passes for 943 yards (15.5) and 10 touchdowns. Set a school single-season record with 36 kickoff returns for 879 yards (24.4), including a 93-yard score against Central Florida. Started all 13 games in 2012, totaling 100 catches for 1,248 yards (12.5) and 11 touchdowns and three kickoff returns for 72 yards (24.0). Suffered a separated shoulder against San Jose State. After playing two seasons with a torn labrum, had it surgically repaired and sat out 2013 spring practice. In the fall, started all 11 games played and posted 57 catches for 894 yards (15.7) and five touchdowns. Sat out the season opener against Virginia (hamstring) and was suspended against Middle Tennessee State for a violation of team rules. Was the Cougars' leading receiver his final three seasons. Owns BYU's all-time records for receptions (260), receiving yards (3,612), receiving touchdowns (33) and all-purpose yards (5,105).



Outstanding size with long arms. Extends outside his frame and can snag throws outside his body. Wide catching radius. Deceptively quick coming out of breaks. Has NFL pedigree. Experienced, four-year starter. Played through a shoulder injury during 2011 and 2012 seasons. Is tough and durable.


Comes off the line too gingerly and will struggle beating NFL press coverage. Limited agility to shake defenders releasing and does not create in space. Monotone route runner. Many of his catches are contested because of minimal separation. Does not play to his size in the run game. Uses too much finesse as a blocker. Average athlete with limited burst and explosion. Average leaping ability -- posted 27 1/2-inch vertical jump and 8-10 broad jump, the lowest of any receiver at the combine. Must learn what it means to be a pro and could benefit from committing more to the craft.

Draft Projection

Round 7-Priority free agent

Bottom Line

A big, outside-the-numbers possession receiver with good length and hand-eye coordination to fend for a roster spot as a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver.
