Boston College defensive lineman Kaleb Ramsey was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday in the seventh round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
In what turned out to be an excellent final day of the proceedings at Radio City Music Hall, Ramsey was the fourth Boston College Eagle to be drafted. He joined Andre Williams, Kevin Pierre-Louis, and Nate Freese as NFL draftees, with a handful of others singing professional contracts thereafter.
Ramsey was selected by San Francisco with the 243rd overall pick.
Kaleb Ramsey’s road through Boston College and to the NFL was a rocky one, as the young man was beset with injuries during his playing days. He played his first Eagles snap in 2008 under Jeff Jagodzinski and played his last under Steve Addazio in 2013, a season in which the Uniontown, PA native registered 28 tackles and two sacks over a ten-game span.
On the mock drafts, neither Ramsey nor his former teammate Nate Freese appeared on any, showing the unpredictability that can come in these drafts (and how little analysts and regular observers on the outside can actually know about the inner workings of an NFL war room).
Boston College congratulates Ramsey and all of the other Eagles selected on Saturday.
