NFL Draft 2017 – Round 4 – Baltimore Ravens Select OG Nico Siragusa (122nd overall)

I know everyone was holding their breath on day three of the draft when the Ravens chose all defensive players for day one and two. The fans their were not holding their breath were very vocal, I am sure.

The Baltimore Ravens selected offensive lineman Nico Siragusa in Round 4  (122nd overall) of the 2017 NFL Draft. He is the first offensive player chosen in the draft. He is not related to former Ravens defensive tackle Tony Siragusa, who played with the Ravens back in 1997 to 2001.

Siragusa played football at San Diego State where he was a four-year starter, winning first-team All-American in 2016. He started a total of 41 games at left guard for the last three years. He was one of the lineman responsible for running back Donnell Pumphrey set NCAA record 2,133 rushing yards.

Siragusa is considered an excellent blocker and quick on his feet. He has a low center of gravity which allows him to get a good push-off for defensive opponents. Watch Siragusa play against Wyoming where you can see his size and strength.
