Career Notes | Agility | High School | Personal | Stats


Positives: Well-proportioned frame with broad shoulders…Has a quick release and a live arm with excellent velocity on his deep tosses…Sets up fluidly with good balance and footwork…Poised under pressure, showing toughness stepping up in the pocket…Goes through progressions and does a nice job reading defenses…Shows power and snap in his release, delivering with proper over-the-top mechanics…Steps off his front foot and generates good ball speed, giving his receivers a chance to compete for the long ball…Throws a tight spiral with a good arc that is easy to catch…Vocal leader who commands respect from his teammates…Senses pressure well and can slide to escape from pressure…Can look off and hold the safety, placing his deep tosses over either shoulder of his receivers and away from the defender…Shows the ability to throw in either direction when on the move…Has the ability to find his secondary targets…Very accurate throwing down the middle.

Negatives: Needs to work on his footwork setting up in the pocket, as he is not always quick to reach his drop/set point…Needs to show more patience when under pressure, as he will loft the ball into traffic every now and then…Lacks a soft touch, as he puts too much power behind his short throws (they are accurate, though)…Has trouble following through with his release when forced out of the pocket…Tries to aim at the receiver's numbers, which results in a handful of dropped passes…While he can slide out of the pocket, he is not an elusive runner and will get caught quickly…Little slow-footed and runs too upright, taking unnecessary hits…Good ball handler, but is not deceptive with his fakes…Will commit to a route and throw blindly on occasion…Reads defenses well, but his overall vision is suspect…Needs good protection upfront to be effective due to a lack of escapability.

All I read is good things about Ramsey. Very smart, good size, great arm and delivery, makes all the throws and is tough. The mobility is the only knock it seems. I've also read he's dropped some weight and improved on his mobility. I like that he's got the brains and the arm. I also like that this signals Spurrier acknowledging Wuerffel isn't the answer.
