FSU football greatest NFL career No. 7: Jalen Ramsey
Jalen Ramsey’s football career has seemingly been full of success and accolades. He won a national title as a freshman at Florida State in 2013 and emerged as one of the nation’s best defensive backs later in his career. He became the 5th pick of the 2016 NFL Draft and found his way to the Jacksonville Jaguars where the success only continued.
Ramsey emerged as a shutdown corner for the Jaguars, starting every game for his first three seasons in Jacksonville. He just missed out on Rookie of the Year honors in his first year but was already an All-Pro defensive back in his second year, helping anchor a Jaguars team that made the AFC title game in 2017.
A major name in the NFL world already, Ramsey was traded to the Los Angeles Rams midway through the 2019 season for a package that included a pair of 1st round draft picks. He was impressive for the Rams for the next three and a half seasons and had 4 interceptions in each of the last two seasons.
This talented shutdown corner also added a ring to his collection, helping the Rams win Super Bowl LVI over the Cincinnati Bengals just a year and a half ago. He’s been a winner and elite weapon in the secondary and will continue that next season with the Miami Dolphins.
He’s been in the last six Pro Bowls and is a three-time First Team All-Pro defensive back. Ramsey is another one of the fantastic defensive backs that have come out of this Seminoles program and his story has not been fully written yet.
