  • Plenty of energy
  • Team leader
  • Extremely productive playmaker

    Summary: Ryan Kerrigan is hard not to like with so much production and experience coming out of a major FBS program. His numbers kept getting better, capped off by a senior campaign with 26 TFL and 12.5 sacks for the Boilermakers. Opinions vary on which scheme suits him best, and it will depend on the system. He displays the drive required to adjust wherever he goes. On the downside, his effort might not be enough at the next level.

    Player Comparison: Aaron Kampman. This is a common comparison because it makes sense. Kerrigan has more hype coming out of the Big Ten than Kampman (Iowa) did when he was taken in the fifth round, but both are effort players with a similar build. They also both bring all-around value at the defensive end position.
