Ryan Ramczyk Goes Pro & Declares For NFL Draft
Wisconsin Badgers lost their second player to the NFL Draft when Ryan Ramczyk decided to go pro and forgo his senior year. Ramczyk had quite the interesting journey spending a year at Stevens Point, sitting out a transfer year and having a dominant year at left tackle. In what’s considered a bad offensive tackle draft, Ramcyzk is one of the top players and will likely be drafted in the first round. Can’t blame him striking while the iron is hot and moving forward with his career. If he is drafted in the first round, Ramczyk will be the third Badgers offensive lineman to get drafted in the first round in the last five years.
Even with Ramcyzk’s departure, Wisconsin brings back a bevy of their offensive line that got better as the season went on. They bring back all four players with Brett Connors being the likely replacement for the Stevens Points native. Connors saw some time this season at both tackle and guard so if Paul Chryst or offensive line coach Joe Rudolph wanted to get creative they could push one of their interior lineman out to tackle.
Badgers shouldn’t see any more players go early, and they’re set up for quite a season. Badgers are going to be a top 15 team to start the year bringing back a ton of starters. They’ll be looking to get back to a New Year’s Six bowl, and more importantly, the CFB Playoff.
