Ourlads' Analysis:

2014 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about RYAN SHAZIER: Ohio State, 6011 237 4.43. Junior entry. Two-year starter. A tall rangy inside linebacker who projects to the outside because of his lack of bulk. Some ball clubs may like his inside skill set however. The long-armed blitzer is disruptive, quick, and always around the ball. He led the Buckeyes with 143 total tackles. He also collected 22.5 tackles for loss, 6 sacks, and had 4 forced fumbles. Explosive when moving downhill making contact on a running back. Plays with a competitive spirit. Very willing to initiate contact with a ball carrier. Matches his opponents’ game day intensity. Stays on his feet when shedding a block. A knee bender who protects his legs from cut blocks. Good functional flexibility to take on blockers. Very good speed and range to be productive on outside runs. Has a burst to finish off plays. 2013 stats: 144 T, 23.5 TFL, 7 sacks, 4 FF. Medical exclusion at Combine, left hamstring. First/second round. (A-32 3/8, H-10, BP-25, SS-4.21).
