Ramirez earned a starting job as a freshman in 2003 and has not looked back since. He has been the key member of a Tech offensive line that has routinely been one of the most explosive units in the country. As a junior last season, Ramirez earned 2nd Team All Big 12 honors.
One word to describe Ramirez is power. He plays with amazing strength and power on the football field. He can flat out dominate a defensive lineman at the point of attack and drive him to the ground. Ramirez is one of the best one on one run blockers in the draft because of his raw power. Playing OL for a Red Raider offense means you have to be able to pass block as well. He sets up quickly and keeps himself between the defender and quarterback.
While he is a solid pass blocker at the college level, he may lack the athleticism and mobility to do the same in the NFL. He is not going to get out and block on the move and needs to be in an offense that keeps him in a short area.
Ramirez is a very good right guard prospect and should be a very good run blocker in the NFL. Even though he lacks the ideal athleticism to be a great pass protector, he knows how to pass block. For a team looking to upgrade its ability in a power running game, Ramirez is an excellent fit.
