Also played tight end and was an all-state basketball player as a Pennsylvania prep. Saw action in seven games as a true freshman in 2008 and posted six tackles, zero tackles for loss and one sack. Logged 11-0-2 in seven contests (two starts at right tackle and one at left) in '09. Missed five games because of leg injuries. Appeared in 11 games, starting 10 at left defensive tackle, in '10 and recorded 39-7.5-2.5 with one pass batted down. Was suspended for unspecified reasons against Notre Dame and missed the Virginia game with a hip injury. Did not participate in '11 spring practice while recovering from left shoulder surgery. In the fall, started the season opener against Northwestern but injured his left foot and sat out the season with plantar fasciitis (was granted a medical hardship, preserving eligibility). Started the first two games in '12, tallying 4-.5-0, before a left calf tear sidelined him for the season. Obtained a sixth year of eligibility in '13 -- shifted to defensive end and started 8-of-10 games played, collecting 28-4-2. Did not start against Florida State or Miami, and missed three games in November while nursing a hamstring injury. Did not perform at the NFL Scouting Combine or his pro day because of a right calf injury (medical exclusion).
Good read-and-react skills. Shows stack strength to press and extend. Good initial quickness -- bursts off the snap and has disruptive ability. Plays on his feet, is athletic and bends well for his size. Can redirect and chase. Gives effort in pursuit. Strong tackler. Has played inside and outside. Bench-pressed 225 pounds 36 times at the combine, tops among defensive linemen.
Durability is a red flag -- is fragile and has missed a multitude of games the last five seasons because of head, hip, shoulder, foot, knee and calf injuries. Inconsistent pad level. Needs to improve hand violence and dexterity to disengage more quickly. Linear rusher. Could stand to play with more intensity snap to snap. Ordinary production. Will be 25-year-old rookie.
Round 7-Priority free agent
A sixth-year senior, Ramsey has the physical tools to serve in a rotational role as an aggressive five-technique or 4-3 left end, though his injury history and long-term durability concerns limit his value and could scare teams off.
