Nico Siragusa, OG, San Diego State (Round 4, No.122)
My initial thought when the Ravens drafted offensive guard Nico Siragusa was, “Is he related to Tony Siragusa?” I quickly found out upon reviewing Siragusa’s draft profile on NFL.com that he is NOT related to “Goose,” who spent 12 incredible years with the Ravens.
The third-team AP All-American and first-team didn’t miss a start in his three years at San Diego State, making him a steady and undeviating lineman on the Ravens roster.
Mark Dulgerian from NFL Network provided draft analysis for Siragusa:
"The Ravens ranked 28th in rushing YPG in 2016. Siragusa is a run-blocking specialist (watch some Donnel Pumphrey tape) with starting ability. Strong value pick in the 4th round."
The following is the instant reaction from the Ravens fourth-round draft pick.
The Ravens welcome their new offensive guard to the Charm City.
Communications coach and the voice of the Ravens offered help to Siragusa.
It’s safe to say that Siragusa is ready to begin his career in the NFL with the Ravens.
Through four rounds, Bleacher Report’s Ethan Young appointed the Ravens draft class as the early winners of the 2017 NFL draft after selecting Siragusa.
