The Michigan alumnus dramatically improved his overall grade each year of his career with his best season coming in 2017, where he earned a 75.7 overall grade and a 72.9 run-defense grade. Green Bay has no shortage of talented young linebackers with Oren Burks, Antonio Morrison and the emergence of 25-year old Blake Martinez all on relatively cheap contracts. This depth could cause the Packers to let go of Ryan in free agency, but he should have no shortage of potential suitors.
