If McGinn’s report is true, how does this affect the All-American’s NFL draft stock?

A Wisconsin All-American and potential NFL first-round draft pick could have surgery after the Cotton Bowl, according to a report.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Bob McGinn reported on Saturday evening that left tackle Ryan Ramczyk “will undergo arthroscopic surgery to repair a torn labrum in his hip” after UW’s Jan. 2 match-up against the undefeated Western Michigan Broncos (h/t Zach Heilprin, Tom Oates). McGinn received the information from some NFL teams’ personnel.

Ramczyk jumped in and excelled at the left tackle spot for Wisconsin’s offense in 2016. The 6’6, 314-pound redshirt junior was honored as a consensus first-team All-Big Ten selection, then was selected as a first-team All-American by Pro Football Focus, Sports Illustrated, Sporting News and USA Today. He also received a Walter Camp second-team All-American honor nod.

Here’s the full post about Ramczyk from McGinn’s article:

Probably the next left tackle is Wisconsin junior Ryan Ramczyk (6-5, 315), who stunned scouts by playing extremely well against Louisiana State in his major-college debut. He played for UW-Stevens Point in 2013-’14 before red-shirting at UW last year.

“LSU has good edge guys and I was saying, ‘Who the heck is the left tackle?’” said another scout. “He matches up with people stride for stride athletically. I was shocked.”

Ramczyk, according to teams, will undergo arthroscopic surgery to repair a torn labrum in his hip after the Badgers’ bowl game.

“It’s a four-month (injury),” said one scout. “He’s very talented. I think he will come out. He’s deciding that right now.”

There was a question if Ramczyk would leave a year early, though many thought he would declare for the NFL Draft after his impressive season. There’s been talk of the Stevens Point native being a first-round draft selection. Pro Football Focus even listed him as going to the San Diego Chargers at No. 10 in their mock draft this month.

As both Heilprin and Oates noted if the report is confirmed, Ramczyk would presumably miss the NFL Combine, Wisconsin’s pro day and any pre-draft workouts — all of which could increase his stock further.
