Re: Re: Jalen Ramsey 2014


I'm sorry but having a projected SAFETY grade lower because he cannot shed blocks is one the dumbest (censored) I ever heard in my life. Ramsey is a free safety in the NFL. You spent 3 paragraphs talking about the same issue with him. You mean a 6'2 205 pound safety is having trouble disengaging from blockers?!?! Wow, huge surprise! Sounds like 90% of the FS's in the NFL. The kid can cover and is an excellent athlete in space and will be a special centerfielder in the league barring injury.Earl Thomas is not a run enforcer and I'd take him top 10 all day every day. There's simply not enough good coverage safeties in the NFL to nitpick at things like "shedding blocks". If your FS has to shed a block then by design you failed yourself as a defensive coordinator.

Agreed.  Pretty stupid way to evaluate DB's.The only thing I'd agree with the OP on is Ramsey isn't a top 10 pick as a CB.  That dude is a Safety, and a very good one, all the way - with the ability to cover a guy in a pinch.
