2016 NFL Draft Scouting Notes: Jalen Ramsey, Safety, Florida State

2016 NFL Draft Scouting Notes: Jalen Ramsey, Safety, Florida State
By Lijah Spencer (@tweaked74)
Moving along with the safety position in scouting notes today we look at a player who became the first player since Deion Sanders to start a game at Cornerback, he has since moved to safety. Here are my notes:

Jalen Ramsey. 6’1. 201 lbs. Florida St. Safety.

The Positives

1) Good speed

2) Good blitzing ability

3) Good tackling ability

4) Always trying to strip the ball

The Negatives

1) Inexperienced at safety, but plays it well and still improving.

Jalen Ramsey is an athletic player who started his college career playing Cornerback (became the 1st true freshman to start at corner since “Neon” Deion Sanders in the mid 80’s) but has since moved to the safety position. He has very good speed, and blitzes the QB well. He is good in coverage, with enough speed to cover WR’S. He tackles very well, and is adept at stripping the ball when bringing down the ball carrier. There is no guarantee that he enters the Draft as he is only a junior, but he is expected to be one of the top defensive players in the country and if that holds true he very well may decide to declare for the NFL Draft, if he is injured or for some reason struggles this year, he may opt to return to school.

    Love this kid, has all the tools u look for at the safety position. Lot of up side, plays as fast as his 40 time, great ball skills, takes good angles to the ball, plays fast, great tackler, great at recognizing plays, exceptional closing speed, great at tracking the ball, great football IQ, plays big time games against top talent & looks like the better player, could very well be the next ED Reed! Can't wail for this kid to play at the next level, hope that the Detroit Lio s have the opportunity to draft him!
