Ben Ratzlaff WR Houston Baptist Draft Profile

Strengths
  • Balanced, savvy route runner with top field awareness, setting up and selling routes beautifully.
  • He is quicker than fast and lacks elite wheels to simply blow by defenders, but he has good football speed.
  • Has a knack for getting open and is a quarterback's best friend - passers just need to toss the ball in his area and he'll come down with it.
  • Often used on deep routes, getting separation down the sideline or over the middle on crossing routes by extending his arms rather than pure speed.
  • Does not have exceptional straight-line speed but takes advantage of open seams when his quarterback is on target.
Weaknesses
  • Doesn't have the size to consistently win on the outside, but can be productive working the middle of the field and as a return man.
  • Not a burner or consistent vertical threat. Has a lanky frame and will be overmatched physically by most cornerbacks in the NFL. Needs to be more competitive in tight coverage.
  • Needs to refine his routes and become a better all-around receiver. Has some ball security concerns. Durability concerns because of his size.
  • Does not always use his hands to secure deep throws, allowing the ball into his pads and chest.
  • Hands are good, not great. Will drop some easy balls and sometimes will body catch. Occasionally fails to high point.
