Today's question, presented to Pete Prisco of CBS Sports:

Is Florida State DB Jalen Ramsey worthy of the No.1 pick?

Prisco's answer:
"The value for that position is so hard to justify at No.1. You have to ask yourself: If he is Earl Thomas, which is the high end of that position, is that worth the No.1 overall pick? Me personally, I think he is going to be a really, really, really good safety. Maybe a great safety. He could be a good corner, but a great safety. You have to ask yourself: Is that worth No.1 overall? To answer your question, the way the game has changed, and the way the free safety position has become more valuable, maybe. But if I'm the Titans, I want big people – somebody on the offensive or defensive line. I really like Ramsey. He has great ball skills. I think he has more range and more versatility than Eric Berry. He could play slot corner, he could play outside corner. But I think he's going to be a great free safety."
