Ryan Claridge School: UNLV
Ht: 6-2 Wt: 254 40: 4.74 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Three-year starter who earned All-
Conference mention since his sophomore
campaign. Posted 87/15/9 as a senior, all career
Positives: Physical linebacker who plays
with a good degree of intelligence. Disciplined,
reads the action and displays skill in coverage.
Solid lateral movement skills, holds his ground
against blocks and stays on his feet. Effective
playing over tight ends or in zone coverage.
Likes to mix it up, displays the ability to cut
off flanks from running backs and quick up the
field filling gaps.
Negatives: Does not play with great
control and slow redirecting to ball carriers.
Analysis: An underrated defender that's been
productive throughout college, Claridge has
the skills to be used on the weak side or over
tight end. Overlooked in scouting circles, yet a
solid second-day pick who could be productive
at the next level.
