Two 'Noles enter. Two 'Noles win. That was easy.

A pair of former Seminoles showed exactly what they could bring to an NFL team on Friday, as both defensive back Jalen Ramsey and kicker Roberto Aguayo competed in the College Football All-Star Challenge in Arlington's AT&T Stadium on Friday and took home top honors.

Of course, both have played there before, having contributed to a 37-31 FSU win over the Oklahoma State Cowboys in the opener of the 2014 season. Ramsey faced Corey Coleman and Will Fuller, a pair of receivers from Baylor and Notre Dame respectively, in the PlayStation Hands Competition and came out on top, despite the stereotype that DBs have worse hands than WRs. Ramsey snagged every ball possible and finished his workout by effortlessly dunking the ball over the crossbar of the goalpost. Ramsey followed his performance with a celebratory dance that included a shake-it-off gesture from the shoulder and a dab. Said Ramsey: "I got hands just like a receiver."

Former 'Nole kicker Roberto Aguayo followed up Ramsey's performance by besting UCLA kicker Ka'imi Fairbairn and UGA's Marshall Morgan in the speed kick competition. Aguayo was the only participant to drill every field goal he attempted, further cementing the probability that he, like Ramsey, will likely be the first player selected in his position group in the coming NFL Draft.
