Ramsey started his first three games as a sophomore and then led the Eagles' defensive linemen with 39 tackles in 2010. However, he played in just two games the following season due to a left foot injury. He again played in two games in 2012 before sitting out the rest of the campaign due to injury.
Ramsey returned last season to start eight of 10 games, finishing with 28 tackles, 4.0 tackles for loss and 2.0 sacks. However, he was not able to participate at the Scouting Combine or his pro day due to a right calf injury.
STRENGTHS: High school basketball player is a good sized athlete, and can line up at multiple spots along the defensive line. A load to handle off the snap. Moves well for his size. Strong tackler who benched 225 pounds 36 times at the combine, topping the position.
WEAKNESSES: Strong durability concerns - dealt with significant leg, shoulder, foot and calf injuries during six college seasons. Doesn't almost rush the pocket with a plan and needs to play smarter and display better instinct. Too easily allows himself to get tied up with single blockers.

Draft Scout Player News
07/18/14 - DT Kaleb Ramsey failed his physical with the 49ers July 17 and was declared active/physically unable to perform.
05/12/14 - A closer look at the 49ers' picks: Round 7/243 -- Kaleb Ramsey, DE, 6-3, 293, Boston College...Ramsey is a player the 49ers have evaluated for three-straight drafts, but injuries have prevented him from leaving school. He can play all over the defensive line and posted 36 reps on the bench press at the scouting combine. If he stays healthy, he could be a developmental player on the practice squad with a chance to make the roster in future seasons. - The Sports Xchange
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
