Big 12 Ht., Wt.: 6'3, 298 40 Time: 5.36 Grade: 3.27
BIO: Four-year starter who earned first team all-conference honors as a senior.
POSITIVES: Hard-working center with marginal upside for the next level. Quickly gets off the ball and plays with a nasty streak. Solid position blocker who jolts opponents at the point then walls them from the play. Stays with the action, quarterbacks the offensive line and looks to help out teammates.
NEGATIVES: Lacks the dominant base and does not open up the middle of the field. Lacks adjustment, balance and struggles to sustain his blocks for long periods.
ANALYSIS: A competitive and productive blocker on the college level, Ricker's game is characterized by hustle and intelligence. Lacks the top athletic abilities but work ethic could make him a valuable reserve.
