Pos: 
Tough, hard-hitting safety who started the past two-plus seasons at Arkansas. Nasty, attacks opponents and drives his shoulder pads through ball carriers. Sells out to make plays, keeps the action in front of him and quickly reads and diagnoses plays. Rarely has mental lapses on the field, quickly picks up coverage assignments between the numbers and displays solid ball skills. Takes proper angles to the action. Strong wrap-up tackler.
Neg: 
More of a downhill, between-the-numbers safety. Shows limited lateral speed out to the flanks. More of a loper who lacks a quick burst.
Analysis: 
Ramirez is a bit of a limited athlete but gets the most from his abilities and combines tenacious play with instincts. He's a special-teams prospect who could back up as a traditional strong safety.
