TFY Draft Preview's Player Profile
Full Name: DeMeco Ryans School: Alabama Pos: OLB
Ht: 6-1.5 Wt: 236 40: 4.70 Year: 4Sr
Bio: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors the past two seasons and honored as an All-American in ‘05. Totals last season included 76/16/5 after 78 tackles as a junior. Posted 126 tackles during his sophomore campaign. All-Academic performer throughout college.
Pos: Productive weak-side linebacker shooting up draft boards. Efficient, immediately reads the action and takes good angles to the ball-handler. Gets depth on drops and displays ball skills in coverage. Resilient, very instinctive and immediately reacts to the action. Solid in pursuit and is rarely off his feet.
Neg: Lacks bulk and playing strength, and sometimes has tackles broken.
Analysis: An intelligent prospect who graduated in seven semesters, Ryans offers plenty of upside for the next level. A potential starter at several linebacker positions, expect him to break in with the first team as a rookie.
