    Ryan plays with good strength at the point of attack. He shows the ability to stand up the blocker by lowering the shoulder and bouncing off the block. He also does a nice job of boxing the FB or blocker and turning the play back to the inside. He shows adequate nimbleness for the next level at the strong side LB in the four three. Ryan demonstrates the ability to drop into zone coverage and stay with the receiver on broken plays. He also shows he can come forward and provide some pass rush on passing situations. Ryan plays with good intensity for the linebacker position. He walks the fine line of reckless abandon, but can still maintain control. He is not afraid to throw his body around. Ryan was a quiet leader for the Michigan defense evidence to his switch to the MLB position last season. His hitting and tackling is good. He is not afraid to make contact and it shows. Sometimes he gets to caught up with contacting the ball carrier and not wrapping up on the tackle. Something he has to be more consistent with at the next level.

Aaron began closely following the draft in 2005. Since then, he’s overcome an Al Davis-like obsession with workout numbers, instead focusing more (but not exclusively) on the traits visible on prospects’ tape.
