New Orleans Saints: 3 underhyped players heading into the 2020 season
Number Three: Ryan Ramczyk
Somehow, whenever the top offensive tackles discussion is brought up amongst analysts or twitter ninjas, the Saints’ star is always left out. Ryan Ramczyk, a 6-foot-6, 314-pound mammoth of a man, is coming off an incredible 2019 campaign with the Saints.
Ramczyk, 26, is one of the most technically sound offensive tackles in the entire NFL which is funny because when he was coming out of Wisconsin he was listed as a guy who doesn’t wow on tape and lacks the common fundamentals.
Ramczyk has only been penalized 11 times in his NFL career, which is a number that many players hit within the first half of a season.
Ramczyk had an incredible 2019 season where he allowed zero sacks and completely shut down guys like JJ Watt, Aaron Donald, Jadeveon Clowney, Khalil Mack, and Chandler Jones on his way to being the highest-graded offensive tackle by Pro Football Focus.
Despite him being named a First-Team All-Pro selection, the disrespect on Ramczyk is unreal. There’s no doubt the Saints are the team they are today without his excellent contributions and he deserves more credit.
