Former Florida State defensive back Jalen Ramsey was taken No. 5 overall by the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2016’s NFL Draft for a reason. He’s an elite athlete and makes incredible plays in the secondary from time to time. One of those times came against the Chicago Bears.
With the Jaguars up 17-16 and the Bears marching down the field, the Jags needed a play on defense. The Bears were at 4th and 10 and who else but Ramsey was ready to make the play?
Not only did Ramsey save the game for the Jags, but he made that play on elite receiver Alshon Jeffery. He got picked on by the tall receiver in the first half getting burned for 90 yards on six catches by Jeffery, but he made the play that mattered most and he talked about his confidence to make it after the game:
That’s one of the reasons the Jags drafted this kid. That and the fact he’s a very good football player.
