BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter experienced at tackle and end. Senior totals included 25/6/4. Posted career-best numbers of 41/8/2.5 as a sophomore.

POSITIVES: Hard-working leverage lineman who makes plays in all directions of the field. Quick off the snap, wedges through the small creases of the offensive line and immediately changes direction. Slides to the inside defending the run, quickly diagnoses the action.

NEGATIVES: Undersized and controlled by a single blocker. Marginally productive in college.

ANALYSIS: An explosive lineman who made plenty of big plays in college, Ryan is an underrated prospect who can be used as a three-technique tackle or possibly at end in a two-gap alignment.

PROJECTION: Middle Fourth Round
