With All-American linebacker Luke Kuechly opting for the NFL a year early, Ramsey is expected to be the senior leader of the Eagles? defense in 2012.
Last year Ramsey was pegged by head coach Frank Spaziani as a player ready to make ?tremendous strides,? but his 2011 season was cut short due to a left foot injury he suffered in the first quarter of the season opener. The senior missed the rest of last season, earning a medical redshirt, and is expected to be healthy for the 2012 campaign.
Ramsey is a load to handle off the snap, but doesn?t always rush the pocket with a plan and needs to play smarter with better instincts. He moves well for a 300-plus pounder, but too easily allows himself to get tied up with single blockers.
If he can stay healthy this season and keep his nose clean (suspended for a game in 2010 for violation of team rules), Ramsey has the skill-set and natural size to earn a draft pick on day three next April.

Draft Scout Player News
08/22/13 - DE Kaleb Ramsey is taking his third stab at his final year at the Heights; and he's switching from tackle to end to do it. Injuries have limited Ramsey to two games each of the last two years, and he's back via a sixth year granted by the NCAA. The move to the outside, orchestrated by new coordinator Don Brown, should give Ramsey more freedom and allow him to avoid the pressures of the trenches a bit more. - The Sports Xchange
06/27/13 - TOP BOSTON COLLEGE PROSPECTS: 3. DT Kaleb Ramsey (6-3, 288, 5.24)...If it feels like Ramsey has been at Boston College for six seasons now, you're exactly right. After a 2010 season in which he introduced himself to pro scouts as a legitimate NFL prospect, he missed most of 2011 and 2012 due to injuries, including plantar fasciitis. Ramsey, who earned his degree last year, was granted a sixth year of eligibility and will attempt to rebuild his draft stock and stay healthy in 2013 while also pursuing his master's degree.
When he was on the field, he wasn't used as a full-time player as he was often subbed in and out as more of a rotational lineman. Ramsey has good natural burst off the snap to attack gaps and use his quickness to slip into the backfield. He shows nice awareness against the run with the hand strength to shed and work through traffic to the ball. Ramsey needs to improve his leverage and keep his pad level low, but obviously the biggest obstacle standing between him and the NFL is durability. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
10/13/12 - Reserve defensive lineman Kaleb Ramsey missed the last two games and remains questionable for the FSU game. He has 4 tackles on the season. - College Injury Report
07/24/12 - Defensive tackle Kaleb Ramsey was looking forward to his senior season at Boston College in 2011, but plantar fasciitis (a painful inflammation of the tissue in the sole of the foot) in his left foot kept him off the field. “It wasn’t easy to see my team out there every weekend, knowing I should be out there helping them win,” Ramsey said. “It definitely humbled me. It made me more appreciative of the game. I realized that any second the game can be taken away from you. It just made me more hungry for this season.” Ramsey says he feels healthy and is in great shape. He has been working with a specialist to increase his flexibility and help minimize injuries. - Bill Hass, ACC football
