BIO: Three-year starter used at both outside linebacker and strong safety. Led the team in tackles as a senior posting 99/7.5/2.
POSITIVES: Explosive defender with good size/speed numbers. Quick up the field, fluid changing direction and takes good angles to the play. Has a burst of closing speed and makes plays out to the sidelines. Splits blocks, redirects to the action and wraps up tackling.
NEGATIVES: Marginal ball skills in pass coverage. Size is a limiting factor.
ANALYSIS: A high-intensity defender, Ransom has potential on the outside in a 34 defense or could be used as a traditional strong safety if he improves in pass defense.
