Tulane Quarterback Patrick Ramsey Could Be Drafted In The First Round

At 6-3 219 pounds Patrick Ramsey has the body frame to withstand the pounding of an NFL season.  He's a tough guy who can also pull the trigger launching the ball downfield.  During a week of practice at the Senior Bowl in January, Patrick's NFL stock rose.

NFL Analyst Al Dupuy says, "He's a great drop back passer.  He makes all the throws that you need to make in the pro ranks. He can make the deep out.  He lost some weight trying to be a little more niffty to become a better scrambler, but he's a pure drop back passer."

Ramsey is projected to be the third quarterback taken in the draft right behind Fresno State's David Carr and Joey Harrington of Oregon.

In three seasons at Tulane Patrick Ramsey directed a pro-style passing attack, generating 9-thousand-178 yards and 71 touchdowns.  He established 30 Tulane passing and total offense records. The Ruston, Louisiana native is ready for his next challenge, the NFL.

Ramsey said, "Intelligence, size and arm strength are the three things that I combine to help a team.   If there was one thing I need to work on once I get drafted it's my first step out of the pocket.  I'm O.K. once I get moving. I've worked on my first step a lot and have improved and hope to continue to improve in that area."

While at Tulane Ramsey proved he's highly capable of learning intricate offensive plays now deployed in the NFL.  He hopes to become the first player from Tulane drafted in the first round since Tommy Mason in 1961.
