Former Colts linebacker Ryan Clady was a fan of football for years, but that changed in the offseason of 2016 when he joined the Baltimore Ravens.
The team announced the move to get a player that can play both safety and linebacker, but the former Cleveland Browns linebacker is now one of the top safety prospects in the 2018 NFL Draft.
Read more about Clady’s journey: A former linebacker for the New Orleans Saints and New England Patriots, Clady is a highly-touted prospect who played safety and outside linebacker in college.
He is considered a natural fit for the Ravens defense, as he is very quick and can play outside linebacker.
He has good instincts and can cover receivers and run with speed.
He was a two-time Pro Bowler in 2017, and was named the NFL Defensive Player of the Year.
Clady started just three games for the Baltimore Colts last season.
Clady is ranked as the sixth-best safety in the draft by 247Sports.com, and he is projected as the ninth-best linebacker by Scout.com.
He played in the NFL for 10 seasons, including a 14-year career with the New England (N.Y.) Patriots.
