Strengths:

  • Athletic
  • Great footwork
  • Fluid hips
  • Above average vision and instincts
  • Great leaper

Analysis: To give you an idea of his football pedigree, he was the first Freshman CB to start at FSU since Deion Sanders. He then shifted over to play safety as a Sophomore, winning a National Championship and showing his versatility. Sprinter and champion long jumper for the Seminoles track team and hit a 40-inch vertical leap in high school. Prototype frame for a big, press­ cover corner. Diagnoses plays quickly while sticking a foot in the ground and drives hard towards throws.  Ramsey made more plays on the ball from the slot last year, but his ability to jam and trail receivers limited play-making opportunities this year. He was a consensus All-American despite not recording one interception in 2015.

Weaknesses:

  • Lacks strength
  • Needs to play ‘tougher’
  • Can lose technique when head “isn’t in the game”

Analysis: Ramsey’s thin frame have scouts pondering his durability at the next level. He was a great press-corner in college but I have my doubts against top-notch NFL receivers who are strong enough to handle a jam at the line. Some plays he was dominant against the run, and others seemed to disappear. At times when QB’s were not throwing his way, he got sloppy with his footwork, relying on his speed to play catch-up. Ramsey is capable of being an All-Pro, but could use a little more bravado and attitude play in and play out. I see him as a Pro Bowl nickel corner, even with his length.

Round Prediction: Top 5

NFL Comparison: Orlando Scandrick
