’Noles in the NFL: Week 5

Is Jalen Ramsey the best cornerback in the league?

Jalen Ramsey is only in his second year in the NFL, but he may be amongst the best players at his position already.

In a 30-9 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers and Ben Roethlisberger, Ramsey collected his second interception of the season and added four (!!) more pass deflections to boot.

It’s fair to say the former Florida State star has been a lockdown cornerback for the Jaguars this season. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see him travel to his first Pro Bowl if he continues to perform at a high level.
