One of the first things I saw when watching Ralston is how much he loves to block. There were many instances of him peeling off to take on a defensive end setting an edge and not just moving him, but blowing the end back or onto the ground. Unafraid to take on the bigger players, Ralston as a lead blocker is violent and in one instance took on two defenders at once and won. He will shed his first block and look for another block to make to seal off lanes. He has soft hands in the passing game which gives him some viability at tight end and in the passing game out of the backfield. In short-yardage situations, Ralston gets low and gains tough yards, both for first downs and at the goal line. He also plays special teams and gets downfield faster than his 40 time would make one think and looks to blow up blockers and returners alike.
