07/30/2014 - Michigan's NFL Draft-Eligible prospects to watch in 2014: 2. LB Jake Ryan, RS Senior...Even Ohio State fans can admit, Ryan is a darn good football player. He is the self-made type of prospect who somehow went under-recruited despite coming from St. Ignatius in Cleveland, one of Ohio's top high school football programs. After he redshirted in 2011, Ryan couldn't be kept off the field and blossomed into one of the Big Ten's top defenders, leading Michigan in tackles (88), tackles for loss (16.0) and sacks (4.5) in 2012. He tore the ACL in his right knee in March 2013 and missed the first half of last season, starting only five games in 2013 while working his way back from injury.

Ryan processes information very quickly to read, react and attack with aggressive, decisive movements and has the athleticism to chase down ballcarriers and cover a large area. He has a high football IQ and it's no coincidence that he always seems to be around the ball, displaying the point-of-attack toughness to consistently finish. With a healthy and productive senior season, Ryan is viewed by scouts as a possible top-50 draft pick and a player who can line up at several linebacker spots in any scheme. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
