Saints rookie progress report heading into week 4

3 of 8

Ryan Ramczyk, tackle, pick #32

After originally being pegged as the understudy of RT Zach Strief, injuries to both Strief and LT Terron Armstead forced Ryan Ramczyk onto the front-lines.

Over the first 3 weeks he has performed admirably. After facing a nightmare scenario in week 1 against the daunting Vikings front seven he’s shown steady improvement in weeks 2 and 3.

While it’s a tough situation for a rookie to be in, it’s good experience for Ramczyk to be getting starters reps this early on. The only drawback in these situations is potentially tarnishing the young player’s confidence. But Ramczyk seems to have that in spades.

With Strief nearing the end of his career, the Saints have found a solid prospective replacement in Ramczyk.
