Scouting Report: Sean Ryan
Full Name: Sean Ryan School: Boston College Ht: 6-4.5 Wt: 260 40: 4.94 Number: 89 Bio: 2002: Started every game and caught 23 passes for 280 yards (12.2 per catch) with 3 touchdowns. 2001: Started 11 games and the Music City Bowl, finishing with 17 receptions for 223 yards and three touchdowns. 2000: Started six games at defensive end and had 29 tackles with seven for a loss and a pair of quarterback sacks. The Good: Big, tough slug it out football player who brings a defensive end's mentality to the tight end position. Quick into his blocks, stays square and strong at the point. Anchors in pass protection or takes opponents out blocking for the run. Uses his frame to shield defenders as a pass catcher, extends, then looks the pass into his hands. The Bad: Lacks speed, soft hands and not making plays into the defensive secondary. More of an underneath safety valve than true receiving threat. The Skinny: Ryan is a throwback to the tight ends of old; a blocker first, second and for the most part, third. He attacks his blocks and gets results from them. In this day and age of "stretch the field tight ends" it is hard to imagine Ryan being drafted in the first four rounds. Yet after watching him since he was a sophomore, it is hard to imagine he won't succeed in the NFL.
