FSU star Ramey lands in top five of Kiper's first mock draft

BY foxsports • January 14, 2016

On Thursday Mel Kiper released the first of what is sure to be many mock NFL Drafts and Florida State star defensive back Jalen Ramsey was predicted to be a top five pick.

Ramsey, a 6-1, 202-pound junior was a consensus All-America in 2015, tallying 52 tackles and 3.5 tackles for a loss.

The ultra-athletic Ramsey is a two-time all-American and became the first true freshman to start at cornerback for FSU since Deion Sanders.

Kiper predicted that Ramsey would come off the board at No. 5 when the Jacksonville Jaguars make their selection.


The best player available here, Ramsey is a great corner or a great safety, a fit in any secondary given his skill set and incredible athleticism. Those athlete credentials? Well, consider that he's long-jumping at roughly an Olympic level in, essentially, a second sport that he really can't commit to full-time. A worthy top-five talent in the secondary.

Kiper predicted that Ohio State defensive end Joey Bosa would be selected No. 1 overall by the Tennessee Titans, with Cal QB Jared Goff going to Cleveland Browns at No. 2, Ole Miss offensive tackle Laremy Tunsill headed to San Diego at No. 3 and Oregon DE DeForest Buckner headed to Dallas with the No. 4 pick.
