Ragland had a productive 2-year career in Tuscaloosa, winning SEC Defensive Player of the Year honors in 2015. Ragland collected 95 tackles and 10.5 tackles for loss in his award-winning season.
Ragland would end up slipping to the 2nd round of the 2016 NFL Draft, after a medical evaluation discovered an enlarged aorta. Ragland was selected by the Buffalo Bills, but suffered a torn ACL, ending his rookie season before it began.
Ragland’s most effective season as a pro came in 2018 as a member of the Kansas City Chiefs. Ragland collected 86 tackles, 1 INT, and 2 tackles for loss. Ragland has bounced around the NFL since his Chiefs’ tenure.
The Las Vegas Raiders are currently 2-6 and have a matchup with the Colts in Week 10.
