Broad and bulky in his hips.
Not enough foot quickness to wiggle away from penetration.
Slow to and through the hole.
Unable to get to the corner on bounce-wide runs.
Can't finesse through crevices along the interior.
Unimaginative running style is easy to find for linebackers.
Strong but not overly explosive.
Rarely a third-down option for the Ragin' Cajuns.
Analysis: Ragas was a very productive ball carrier with excellent size, and he has enough skill to make it as a fifth running back on an NFL roster.
On top of his middling explosiveness and athleticism, Ragas is set to turn 25 years old this coming November. Given the fact that running backs have shorter shelf lives than other positional players, the fact that Ragas is already 25, with over 500 career carries under his belt, throws his long-term utility into question.
Nevertheless, as a sixth or seventh-round pick, Ragas might generate some interest. For teams like the Seattle Seahawks, Carolina Panthers, and the New York Jets, who likely crave more baseline utility and power in their rushing rooms, Ragas would be a solid addition.
He doesn’t have quite as much upside as his teammate Mitchell, but as we’ve seen, buy-low running backs are always good investments to make, either late in the draft, or in the undrafted free agent pool.
UDFA probably we would not use a 4th on him.
