Ryan is shorter at 5’11 but is young at 25 and has a good stat sheet. In 2016 he had two interceptions but also 92 tackles.
Ryan also had 11 passes defensed, a forced fumble, and one sack. Over his four seasons in the NFL he already has 13 interceptions.
The Patriots would be wise to hang on to him but he will still be a free agent once the playoffs end. He’s started opposite Malcolm Butler, the Patriots number one corner.
While his size may not be the ideal fit for the Cardinals he still fits. He’s active and is still at 5’11 able to defend passes with the best of them. He had 41 passes defensed in his short career so far.
Odds are he doesn’t end up in Arizona but he is sure someone the Cardinals should at least consider. He’s only 25, so he could be a mainstay in the Cardinals secondary for a number of years.
