2016 NFL Draft: Top 25 Prospects
1. Jalen Ramsey, CB (FSU)
Jalen Ramsey is my best player overall because he is an incredible athlete who can play more than one position. He can be a day one starter at the cornerback position. He can be a day one starter as a free safety. Ramsey is a star who should come off the board pretty quickly. We’re talking about a fast, physical and aggressive defensive back who can make quarterbacks think twice before throwing the football. There are a lot of good cornerbacks in this draft. There are a few exceptional safety prospects. None of them hold a candle to Ramsey, who may be the most complete player available.
Ramsey is in play for every team inside the top 5. If he doesn’t get taken in the top 5, the Ravens would be foolish not to draft him. It would be an improbable steal. Ramsey is 6’1″ and 201 pounds. He has great recovery speed, and long arms. He excels in man coverage, and he is great at anticipating what the QB will do in zone coverage.
This is the best player on the board. Ramsey has a skill set that is unmatched at both positions he can play. His versatility implies a high football IQ and shows the true range of his athletic talent.
