2016 NFL DRAFT

Reggie Ragland, ILB

School: Alabama  |  Conference: SEC
College Experience: Senior  |  Hometown: Madison, AL
Height/Weight: 6-1 / 259 lbs.
Projected Ranking
OverallPositionProj. Rnd.
1611

Player Overview

A do-it-all linebacker for Nick Saban's defense, Ragland finished second on the team in tackles (95) and third in tackles for loss (10.5) in 2014, adding four passes defended and an interception.

He continued his ascent in 2015, being voted the SEC Defensive Player of the Year.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Demonstrates the blend of size, aggression, instincts and reliable open-field tackling skills to project well inside to 4-3 and 3-4 principles, alike. Takes accurate first steps and shows excellent closing burst to arrive with pop at the point of attack.

Works off blocks well with balance and anticipation, looking through blockers to keep his eyes on the prize, doing a much better job downhill rather than in reverse. Physical striker with reliable breakdown skills in the open field, wrapping, driving and finishing.

WEAKNESSES: He isn't the rangiest linebacker.

IN OUR VIEW: He isn't as talented as C.J. Mosley, but he's a better NFL prospect than Trey DePriest, falling somewhere in the middle of those two former Alabama players.

Mock Draft Expert Analysis

  • Washington Redskins | #21
    Washington surrendered an average of 4.8 yards per carry during the regular season, 31st in the NFL, and was event were in the wild card loss to Green Bay, allowing 5.5 yards per attempt. The Crimson Tide, on the other hand, were among the stoutest run defenders in the country with Ragland, arguably the highest profile defender participating in the Senior Bowl, playing a starring role. General manager Scot McCloughan might see Ragland as able to provide an immediate impact similar to the one Patrick Willis made when Washington's top scout was heading up the 49ers front office.
  • Oakland Raiders | #14
    A player who hits anything that moves, Ragland is a tone-setting linebacker who can play all three downs and will give the Raiders another impact player in the front seven.
