05/12/2014 - A closer look at the 49ers' picks: Round 7/243 -- Kaleb Ramsey, DE, 6-3, 293, Boston College...Ramsey is a player the 49ers have evaluated for three-straight drafts, but injuries have prevented him from leaving school. He can play all over the defensive line and posted 36 reps on the bench press at the scouting combine. If he stays healthy, he could be a developmental player on the practice squad with a chance to make the roster in future seasons. - The Sports Xchange

08/22/2013 - DE Kaleb Ramsey is taking his third stab at his final year at the Heights; and he's switching from tackle to end to do it. Injuries have limited Ramsey to two games each of the last two years, and he's back via a sixth year granted by the NCAA. The move to the outside, orchestrated by new coordinator Don Brown, should give Ramsey more freedom and allow him to avoid the pressures of the trenches a bit more. - The Sports Xchange

06/27/2013 - TOP BOSTON COLLEGE PROSPECTS: 3. DT Kaleb Ramsey (6-3, 288, 5.24)...If it feels like Ramsey has been at Boston College for six seasons now, you're exactly right. After a 2010 season in which he introduced himself to pro scouts as a legitimate NFL prospect, he missed most of 2011 and 2012 due to injuries, including plantar fasciitis. Ramsey, who earned his degree last year, was granted a sixth year of eligibility and will attempt to rebuild his draft stock and stay healthy in 2013 while also pursuing his master's degree.

When he was on the field, he wasn't used as a full-time player as he was often subbed in and out as more of a rotational lineman. Ramsey has good natural burst off the snap to attack gaps and use his quickness to slip into the backfield. He shows nice awareness against the run with the hand strength to shed and work through traffic to the ball. Ramsey needs to improve his leverage and keep his pad level low, but obviously the biggest obstacle standing between him and the NFL is durability. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
