The New Orleans Saints know they are only going to have quarterback Drew Brees for only so much longer. In order to keep him around, they need to protect him.
The Saints drafted offensive tackle Ryan Ramczyk with the 32th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. This pick was acquired by New Orleans from the New England Patriots in the Brandin Cooks deal.
The redshirt junior was is being compared to Joe Staley. If that is the case, then the Saints are getting a very good player.
“He’s really athletic and he’s really smart,” an NFC Midwest scout told NFL.com of the pick. “There are a lot of Wisconsin lineman, who start in the league because they learn an NFL system and they are taught the right way. He played against Arden Key, Sam Hubbard and Taco Charlton. This guy is battle tested against three future first-rounders.”
The 6-foot-6, 310 pounder is expected to stay on the left side. Right now, the Saints already have a left tackle, but could move him to the right tackle and insert Ramczyk as the left tackle.
He’s expected to be an early impact starter with his technique.
