Could the Houston Texans take Ryan Ramczyk in the first round?

One of the many players the Texans could end up using their first round pick on is Wisconsin offensive tackle Ryan Ramczyk.

Houston sent one of their coaches to visit with Ramczyk as he went through his combine medical recheck.

From Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle:

"Wisconsin All-American offensive tackle Ryan Ramczyk was visited by Texans offensive line coach Mike Devlin, according to a source not authorized to speak publicly.Ramczyk underwent arthroscopic hip surgery for a torn labrum following the Badgers’ bowl game. His combine medical recheck went extremely well, per a source."

This is certainly great news when it comes to the health of one of this year’s top offensive tackle prospects.

Even though Ramczyk played left tackle in college, he may have to start out on the right side in the NFL, which is not bad for the Texans who need a right tackle.

Ramczyk certainly has the size at 6-foot-6, 310 pounds to be a problem for defensive players.

Here’s what one NFL scout said about Ramczyk, via NFL.com:

"“He’s really athletic and he’s really smart. There are a lot of Wisconsin linemen who start in the league because they learn an NFL system and they are taught the right way. He played against Arden Key, Sam Hubbard and Taco Charlton. This guy is battle tested against three future first rounders.” – NFC midwest scout"

If for some reason there isn’t a good quarterback to take when the Texans are on the clock with the 25th overall pick and Ramczyk is there, it would make sense to snatch him up.
