4 of the last 5 cornerbacks drafted in the top 5 ended up being Pro Bowlers

Buccaneers quarterback is lobbying for his former teammate Jalen Ramsey

Could Jalen Ramsey end up a Pro Bowler?

This year Jalen Ramsey is projected to be a top five pick, and it is good news for the team that selects him. According to NFL.com, four of the last five cornerbacks selected in the top five of the NFL Draft went on to become Pro Bowlers.

Patrick Peterson (fifth overall to Arizona in 2011), Terence Newman (fifth overall to Dallas in 2003), Charles Woodson (fourth overall to Oakland in 1998), and Shawn Springs (third overall to Seattle in 1998) all earned Pro Bowl honors, while only Quentin Jammer (fifth overall to San Diego in 2002) did not.

I cannot imagine Ramsey falling out of the top 5, so it looks like the pressure is on Jalen….
