Ryan Blaszczyk
Position: C
Class: 5Sr
School: Rutgers
Conference: Big East
HT: 6-2.5
WT: 296
40 Time: 5.29
Biography: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors after his sophomore and junior campaigns.

Positives: Quick explosive center with adequate skills for the next level. Cognizant lineman who works well with teammates, keeps his head on a swivel and has a nice feel for what's happening on the field. He keeps his feet moving, plays with a good degree of quickness in his all-around game, and effectively works his hands throughout the action. Possesses a nasty attitude and really gets after blocking assignments. Fluid and active if asked to pull out across the line of scrimmage and block on the move.

Negatives: Lacks strength in the middle of the line and does not get much movement. Does not possess a dominant base and can be pushed back off the line by opponents.

Analysis: Blaszczyk has been durable and productive on the college level the past two seasons. He needs to improve his strength yet his style leads one to believe he could find a backup role in a zone blocking system.

Projection: FA
