12/05/2013 - 2013 ALL-BIG TEN FIRST TEAM (COACHES): Ryan Groy, Wisconsin, Guard...Has been selected All-Big Ten First Team for the 2013 college football season as voted on by the Big Ten head football coaches. - Wisconsin football
09/17/2013 - 2014 NFL DRAFT WEEK 3 STOCK REPORT, NFL PROSPECTS WHO HURT THEMSELVES: OG Ryan Groy, Wisconsin...The Badgers are known for producing talented offensive line prospects and senior left guard Ryan Groy is expected by many to be the next early round NFL draft pick out of Wisconsin. But against Arizona State, he labored most of the night and struggled to keep up with the Sun Devils quick, penetrating interior linemen.
Groy has limited mobility and flexibility and his stiff hips and rigid body control tends to show up often, especially in space. He struggles to stay balanced through contact and is often falling forward with his eyes staring at the ground, awkwardly trying to stay under control. Groy's best quality might be his natural size and girth to occupy space and slow down rushers, but at this point, it's tough to say he'll be a top-100 type like several of his predecessors in Madison. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
08/14/2013 - TOP WISCONSIN PROSPECTS FOR THE 2014 NFL DRAFT: 1. OL Ryan Groy (6-5, 318, 5.26)...He does a nice job squaring his shoulders with a wide base to mirror, but lacks elite redirection skills and is often late with his hands, playing too much belly-to-belly. Groy needs technique work to do a better job protecting his body with more consistent hand use and placement, too often allowing rushers into his breast plate and getting knocked on his heels. He understands leverage, but has room to improve his pad level, letting his shoulders bounce too much off the snap. With a limited sample of him at left tackle on film, time will tell if Groy can make a living on the outside, but he has shown enough to be a possible top-100 prospect with his versatility to line up at multiple offensive line spots. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
08/14/2013 - TOP WISCONSIN PROSPECTS FOR THE 2014 NFL DRAFT: 1. OL Ryan Groy (6-5, 318, 5.26)...The Badgers are well known for producing NFL-ready offensive line prospects, evidence by seven Wisconsin blockers hearing their names called on draft weekend over the last three years. And entering his senior season, Groy is just the latest offensive line product out of Madison who has attracted NFL attention. He was a part-time starter as a freshman and sophomore (six total starts) before becoming the full time starter at left guard last year as a junior. Groy did start a pair of games in 2012 at left tackle when Ricky Wagner went down with an injury (vs. Minnesota and vs. Michigan State) and is expected to kick out and be the full-time starter at left tackle in 2013. He has a wide, well-built frame with powerful take-on strength and flashes the mean streak to overwhelm defenders at the point of attack. Despite average-at-best snap quickness, Groy stays coordinated in his lateral shuffle and looks natural blocking on the move at the second level and on combo blocks. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
