Ryan Kerrigan   #91 OLB

Height: 6-4   Weight: 259   Age: 30

Born: 8/16/1988 Muncie , IN

College: Purdue

Experience: 8th season

High School: Muncie Central HS [IN]









Draft 2011

Pick No.16

Selected By: Washington Redskins

Round: 1

Pick (Overall): 16 (16)

Pick Analysis: Kerrigan is a beast of a football player that has the ability to be a difference maker at the next level. He appears to be versatile enough to play defensive end in a 4-3 and outside linebacker in a 3-4. He has the lower body strength to hold his ground in the running game and is a relentless pass rusher. He is a strip sacks specialist who became the Big Ten's all time leader in forced fumbles as a senior. There are questions whether he can play on his feet in space in the NFL, but Kerrigan is a likely a mid-first round pick.
