STRENGTHS - Ramsey is highly competitive and consistently gets penetration into the backfield using good initial quickness. He shows the necessary lateral speed to chase lays down from behind and be effective outside the box. Solid athletic skills and playing quality leverage allow him to hold his ground and disrupt plays all over the field. Possess multiple rush moves
WEAKNESSES - Kaleb looks a bit smaller on film than listed. He can be pushed around at times do to average lower body strength. He also struggles to regain leverage once he loses it and allows blockers to wash him away and open up large holes. Hand usage while playing the run tends to get a bit high and bent which allows defenders to get into his body.
SUMMARY - Kaleb Ramsey is a two year starter for the Boston College Eagles. He has a solid frame but is a bit undersized and is a best fit to play the 3 technique at the next level in a cover 2 defense, ala Tampa Bay or Chicago. He has rare explosiveness for a defensive tackle which allows him to get up field and make plays in the run and the pass game. On film he tends to not show great toughness and can get pushed around easily if he loses leverage. He will need to improve his overall strength but especially in the lower body to be able to hold his ground in short yardage and goal line situations. Overall Ramsey is a solid 5th / 6th round selection with starting potential.
