Each year we are blown away by players entering the NFL draft and this year is no different. One of the top players determined to show off their abilities heading into the draft in April, is Florida State defensive back Jalen Ramsey. Ramsey is receiving high praise from NFL executives around the league who feel he is one of the most talented cornerbacks in the draft. Ramsey was a star at Florida State and recorded 22 defended passes during his time in Tallahassee. Now at the combine Ramsey posted a 4.41 40 yard dash and 14 reps of the 225 pound bench press. Showing that Ramsey has a unique ability to out run opposing wide receivers while also having the strength to press them as well. It’s that combination that helps make Ramsey such a talented defender and it’s also a big reason while he’ll likely be the top defensive back taken in the draft. Ramsey also has the confidence as well, he recently campaigned to the Tennessee Titans that they should take him 1st overall in the draft because he is “the best overall player.” It’s that belief in himself that allows Ramsey to operate at such a high level on the football field. Now Charlie Casserly recently spoke up and stated that Ramsey is a better prospect than Patrick Peterson was when he was coming out. It’s that positive feedback that helps Ramsey continue to gain respect from team’s front offices and don’t be surprised if Ramsey goes higher than expected in the draft selection process. At the end of the day the guy can flat out play and every team can use an elite cover guy. With NFL wide receivers being better than ever, Ramsey will give a team a chance to neutralize those receiving threats. Keep an eye on Ramsey next month and where he ends up. The team that selects him won’t be disappointed and it will be a pleasure to watch this guy play come next season.
