Scouting Report: Sean Ryan
Name: Sean Ryan School Boston College Year 5Sr
Ht: 6-4.5 Wt: 268 40: 4.94 Pos: TE
Bio: Former defensive lineman that started the past three seasons at tight end. Posted career receiving numbers of 35/447/6 as a senior after 23/280/3 the prior season.
Pos: Tough, hard nosed prospect that dominates as a blocker at the line of scrimmage. Blocks with leverage, strong at the point and finishes off defenders, removing them from the play. Anchors in pass protection, sustains blocks for long periods and seals defenders with excellent body positioning. Nasty and brings a defensive mentality to the position. Technically sound catching the ball; extends his hands, looks the ball in and displays good focus.
Neg: Overall game lacks explosion and speed. Not making plays into the secondary as a receiver nor is he a pass catcher that comes away with the acrobatic grab. Though solid in pass protection, lacks top footwork and blocking range.
Analysis: A mean, nasty prospect, Ryan does the little things well at his tight end position. Complimented for his off the field work ethic and desire to progress as a football player, he should nicely fit in as a second tight end in the NFL.
