Draft Scout Frank Ragnow News
03/26/18 - C Frank Ragnow, who missed the final five games of his senior season and needed surgery on his ankle, felt "athletic" at Arkansas Pro Day on Monday. Ragnow wasn't far enough in his rehab to work out at the Senior Bowl or even the NFL Scouting Combine last month, although he attended and said he officially met with 23 teams in Indianapolis. NFLDraftScout.com rates Ragnow as the No. 72 prospect and the third-best center, behind Iowa's James Daniels and Ohio State's Billy Price.
02/27/18 - 2018 NFL Combine: Key Medical Evaluations: Frank Ragnow, C, Arkansas...One of the top interior blockers in this draft class, Ragnow suffered a high ankle sprain in October that prematurely ended his Arkansas career.

10/24/17 - Arkansas senior OC Frank Ragnow (6-4, 319, 5.33, #72) will miss the rest of the season with a high ankle sprain, which will require minor surgery. He is expected to be sidelined for 12 weeks, putting him on pace to be near full health by the Senior Bowl in late January. Along with Ohio State's Billy Price and Michigan's Mason Cole, Ragnow is a top-3 senior center prospect in the 2018 NFL Draft class, offering position versatility at guard as well. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
10/23/17 - Arkansas got more bad news Monday as standout center Frank Ragnow and stellar freshman running back Chase Hayden are now likely to miss the rest of the season with injuries. The update from coach Bret Bielema was another blow for a team that has lost three straight games in blowout fashion and seven of its last nine overall. The Razorbacks (2-5, 0-4 Southeastern Conference) were already without injured starting quarterback Austin Allen, who has missed the last two games with a shoulder injury, as well as top running back Rawleigh Williams, whose career was ended in the spring following a second neck injury. Also, top wide receiver Jared Cornelius was lost for the season with an Achilles injury he suffered against Texas A&M last month.
"To have running back, wide receiver, quarterback, maybe the best player on our team (Ragnow) ... It's not anything more than reality," Bielema said. "You've got to step up and play and see where it goes from there." Ragnow suffered a high ankle sprain during the second quarter of Saturday's 52-20 loss to No. 19 Auburn. Bielema said his recovery is expected to take 12 weeks. The 6-foot-5, 317-pound center was a preseason All-Southeastern Conference first-team selection, and Bielema said he should recover in time to be fully prepared for the NFL combine and draft. - AP College Football
10/10/17 - Oct 10 Stock Report - Who helped themselves? Frank Ragnow, OC, Arkansas, SR. (6-4, 319, 5.33, #72)...Arkansas is 0-3 this season vs. power-five opponents and it doesn't get any easier with Alabama and Auburn on the schedule the next two weeks. However, one of the bright spots for the Hogs has been Ragnow, the veteran center who is the glue of Arkansas' identity as a physical, run-first offense. He is quick to engage after the snap with the upper body strength and hand violence to sustain while keeping his balance. Ragnow is a mauler in the run game and keeps busy with the nasty demeanor needed to control and generate movement, creating openings for the ballcarrier. Arkansas is on pace for another 6-6 type of regular season and the future of head coach Bret Bielema in Fayetteville is anyone's guess. But regardless of the final record, Ragnow has cemented himself in the discussion to be the top center in the 2018 NFL Draft class, projecting as a future NFL starter. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
