Ryan Switzer

Strengths:

  • Soft hands
  • Creates separation
  • Agility
  • Return man
  • Quickness

Analysis: Ryan Switzer was a go-to target for QB Mitchell Trubisky and the Tar Heels during his tenure at Chapel Hill. He is a reliable pass catcher with low career drop rate. Sudden feet to shake press defenders out of his release. Plays at his top speed and doesn’t coast. Accelerates and separates on speed outs. Utilizes repeatable footwork in routes. Patterns are crisp. Comes out of breaks at sharp angles and snaps head around immediately to find the ball. Owns comeback routes by driving hard back to the throw. Shows traits of effective option-route specialist in short-yardage and red area. He can excel as a rookie in the return game.

Weaknesses:

  • Lacks ideal size
  • Limited catch radius
  • Lacks deep play speed
  • Becomes a ‘body-catcher’ at times

Analysis: Ryan Switzer lacks the size scouts look for and is considered a short target with very limited catch radius. Struggles to haul throws behind him. Needs accurate quarterbacking to do his job. Doesn’t have get-away speed and will have NFL cornerbacks sitting on all of his underneath work.  Not a hands-catcher. Routes feature similar speed throughout and could benefit from change of speeds. Quick but not overly athletic. Struggled to find yards for himself in catch-and-run hitch tosses and wide receiver screens.

NFL Comparison: Cole Beasley

Draft Projection: Round 6
