Jalen Ramsey

#08 Jalen Ramsey

DRAFT CLASS:  JR/2016

POSITION: Free Safety (FS)

SCHOOL: Florida State

HEIGHT:  6-1    

WEIGHT:  209

40 Time:  4.41

STRENGTHS

  • Ramsey is a highly touted prospect entering the 2015 NFL Draft…who has been projected at both the CB & FS positions…though his skills dictate his best long term position projection at the Free Safety spot
  • He is a no question combine freakish talent entering the NFL…possessing excellent short area explosion versus opponents
  • He quickly read & reacts to plays on the field…which even supports his projected move to FS at the NFL level…where he could better utilize these skills in a more spread out area at FS

 

 

WEAKNESSES

  • Where are the “Impact Plays” throughout the course of games his talents suggests?
  • Too often he lunges on tackles which considerably drops his tackling effectiveness
  • Versus larger ball carriers…or ball carriers with considerable momentum he tends to avoid initiating first contact…which is a major red flag moving forward to the next level
  • When he needs to make up extended ground he frequently seems to lack the long area recovery speed his timed 40 suggest
  • He lacks the consistent hands at the position to be considered a COMPLETE game changer at the position
