Jalen Ramsey plans on measuring his abilities in week one against Odell Beckham Jr. and the New York Giants. While Beckham Jr. himself is going to be a tough match up for Ramsey at the end of the day the Jaguars defensive line will bail out their star cornerback. They’re going to unleash on Eli Manning and that’s what everyone is going to remember. Although Ramsey can show off his excellence by limiting Beckham Jr. to two or three catches and less than 60 yards. To be honest that isn’t going to be easy by any means. Beckham Jr. is shiftier than Ramsey and that could end up gashing the former Florida State defender. Odell Beckham Jr. has more fluent hips and he can change directions better too. However one way Ramsey could get the upper hand is through pressing at the line of scrimmage. Beckham is smaller and if Ramsey can bump the Giants receiver then it’s very likely he’ll be overmatched. Now to be fair Jalen Ramsey clearly respects Odell Beckham Jr. that’s why he said this will be a perfect challenge for him. Ramsey wants to be a great player and he knows he will be measured by how he performs against top tier competition? Really that’s why he circled this game on his calendar and he’s probably had Beckham Jr. in mind while training all off-season. NFL players live for these kind of showdowns and you have to appreciate Jalen Ramsey’s never back down mentality. When it’s all said and done though that defensive line is going make life so much easier for the Jaguars secondary. A.J Bouye, Barry Church, and Tashaun Gipson will all have an opportunity to intercept some passes. Which proves it should be a great day for the entire Jacksonville team and Ramsey will certainly benefit because of that.
