Florida State’s Jalen Ramsey is easily one of the best players available in the 2016 NFL Draft and he should end up being one of the first players taken later this month. But, when it comes to his actual position, that has always been a question.
Many have listed Ramsey as just a defensive back because he played both safety and cornerback during his time with the Seminoles. However, he spoke with Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller and cleared up the discussion once and for all.
“Cornerback. I’m a corner who can play safety,” Ramsey told Miller on Friday. “I feel like I’m the prototypical new edition of cornerbacks that the league needs and is going to with bigger receivers. I’m the most physical defensive back and that’s how I play at every level. I have good footwork and can play with the smaller receivers. I can play on the back end because of my physicality, but also because of my range and length.”
Jalen Ramsey is one of the most versatile players available later this month. He has already proven that he can be a big asset no matter where is put on the field.
I think it is pretty safe to say that any team that picks him up is getting a great defensive player that should be able to fill many gaps in their secondary.
