Former Rams CB listed in all-decade mock draft rankings

Former Los Angeles Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey enters his second season with the Miami Dolphins in hopes of staying healthy and making more of an impact on the team. In his prime, Ramsey was undoubtedly a superior corner and arguably the best cornerback in the NFL.

His peak was so great that in their decade-long mock draft, PFF selected Ramsey over any other player drafted fifth overall since 2015. This included taking Ramsey over Devon Witherspoon, Kayvon Thibodeaux, Ja’Marr Chase , Tua Tagovailoa, Devin White, Bradley. Chubb, Corey Davis and Brandon Scherff.

The other most obvious contender was Chase, who became one of the best receivers in the NFL in just three seasons. Still, Ramsey gets the nod, especially since top cornerback play is much harder to come by than high-end receiver play.

At his best, Ramsey was a three-time first-team All-Pro and a seven-time Pro Bowler. He made two of those All-Pro teams with the Rams in 2020-21, also helping the Rams win the Super Bowl against the Cincinnati Bengals. He made the All-Pro team in 2021 despite playing with tears on both shoulders.

He was part of a blockbuster midseason trade in 2019 in which the Jacksonville Jaguars sent him to the Rams in exchange for two first-round picks and a fourth-round pick. He was part of the Rams teams during this period that signed and traded for big stars while giving up draft picks to contend.

In total, Ramsey has 95 career pass deflections, 22 interceptions and six forced fumbles. He has forced opposing quarterbacks to complete less than 60 percent of their passes in four different seasons during his career and is one of the few players in the last decade who can be considered a shutdown corner.
