One of the most electrifying players in all of college football is Florida State Seminoles defensive back Jalen Ramsey, whose strength, athleticism and versatility has defined the team’s secondary in each of his two seasons.
Sure enough, his name has been dropped quite a bit as a potential top 10 pick in next year’s NFL Draft and if you were to ask Rob Rang of CBS Sports, Ramsey is worthy of that regardless of where he plays on the field.
“It was the sophomore, Ramsey, not 2015 draft picks Ronald Darby or P.J. Williams who proved the Seminoles top defensive back a year ago. Injuries to teammates pushed Ramsey all over the field last year and his versatility shined through, starring at safety, cornerback and even linebacker, at times,” Rang wrote.
“A freakish athlete with legitimate Olympics hopes and the physicality required for the NFL, Ramsey has the look of a top 10 pick, regardless of where he ultimately lines up in the secondary.”
It’s certainly hard to argue with that, as Ramsey has 129 total tackles (12 for a loss), three interceptions, four forced fumbles, a fumble recovery and even four sacks in his two seasons in Tallahassee.
That said, with fine size for his position at 6-foot-1, 201 pounds, definitely expect Ramsey to have a great junior season as he likely continues to rocket up draft boards.
