Ourlads' Profile:

2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about RYAN SWITZER: North Carolina, 5084 179 4.50. Three-year starter from Charleston, WV. Two-time All-America return man. Consistently catches the football and keeps momentum. Can run away from people if hit in stride. Incredibly sudden and quick feet that assist him in his release ability. Those feet also allow him to be a good threat working as a slot option route receiver. Very crisp and effective route breaks. Accelerates out of break with good speed and quickness. Plays fast throughout the whole play. Dynamic punt returner with seven career returns for touchdowns. Small frame, short arms with limited catch radius. Doesn’t have the top end speed you would like considering his frame. More quick than fast. Catches the ball with his body too much. Will go out of bounds to avoid hit. Could use more savvy change of speed in his routes to keep corners guessing. Doesn’t seem to have toughness necessary to contribute anywhere else on special teams other than returner. A dynamic punt returner and viable slot receiver option. Holds the single-season NCAA record for punt returns with 5 return touchdowns in a season. Greatest assets are feet and quickness. Will need to be in the right system to contribute as a receiver, but could provide value as a return man immediately for any team. He is an early day three prospect. 2016 stats: 96-1112, 11.6 ypr, 6 TD. OSR:27/60. Fourth/ fifth round. (A-28, H-9 1/8, VJ-32, SS-4.01).
