Florida State defensive back Jalen Ramsey has been touted as one of the top prospects for the 2016 NFL Draft. He can play a number of positions in the defensive backfield, but it seems that NFL scouts would rather him be at the head of the defense rather than covering a man one-on-one.
According to Walter Football, NFL scouts are favoring Ramsey at the safety position rather than at the cornerback spot. This is unfortunate since the Seminoles moved Ramsey to the cornerback slot after losing PJ Williams and Ronald Darby to the NFL last year.
This is the season that Ramsey should step up and show that he can play at either position well. Being able to master both the cornerback and safety positions should be good enough to land him in the top five of next year’s draft.
Ramsey has been praised for his range as a safety. He plays like he is six-foot-four or six-foot-five because of his arm length. They are also impressed with his movability and tackling strength.
No matter where Ramsey ends up getting drafted this season, he should be pretty do pretty well in terms of playing in the NFL. Whoever is lucky enough to draft must know that they have a special player.
