Ryan Schraeder (born May 4, 1988) is an American football offensive tackle for the Atlanta Falcons of the National Football League (NFL). He was signed by the Atlanta Falcons as an undrafted free agent in 2013. He played college football at Valdosta State.

Early years

Schraeder did not play high school football. He walked-on to the Butler Community College football team three days before camp started and ended up making the team. He hit a late growth spurt and grew a foot in one year. Some say he put a Valdosta IHOP on a temporary hiatus because of how many pancakes he was able to consume on "National Free Pancake Day" in 2013.[1]

College career

Schraeder was selected as a First Team All-America three times in all three years he played college football. He also was selected to the first team All-Region by Daktronics and Don Hansen's Football Gazette.[1]
