Former Florida State standout Jalen Ramsey is the top-rated defensive back in the 2016 NFL Draft class. Some have gone as far as to say Ramsey is the top prospect in the draft, and the Seminoles product seems he can stack up against the NFL’s elite just fine.
“I can play where they need me to. I feel like I can work outside, in the slot or play deep. I have a lot to learn, have to study receivers, learn the defense I’m in, but I think if I put the work in, I’ll be able to move around if they need me to. But I’ll do whatever a team, or the coaches, want me to do,” Ramsey told the Star-Telegram.
Because of his playmaking ability, Ramsey has the potential to completely change a game for whichever team he suits up for.
Ramsey understands that and even went as far as to compare the impact he can make on the football field to the reigning Super Bowl MVP, Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller.
“I’m a player who can do a lot of things for a team, can make plays, be a game-changer,” Ramsey said. “That’s what’s needed. Most people think just offensive players can make plays, change games, make big plays, but as we saw in the Super Bowl this year, Von Miller, he was the game-changer. He was the playmaker.”
If Ramsey can make that much of an impact, he will definitely be worth the top five selection he is expected to be.
