Biography: Full-time starter the past two seasons after seeing action with the first team as a sophomore. All-conference selection after his senior and junior campaigns.
Positives: King-sized blocker who is best in a small area. Stays square, strong at the point and turns defenders from the action. Keeps his feet moving, drives defenders off the ball and works to bury them. Patient in pass protection and keeps defenders in front of him.
Negatives: Has a tendency to get tall and loses leverage. Not a natural knee bender. Inflexible and shows stiffness in his game. Ineffective blocking in motion.
Analysis: Ryan is a large and strong tackle with limited movement skills. He will get consideration on the right side but comes with limited athleticism.
