NFLN Analyst Charles Davis High on DB Jalen Ramsey


NASHVILLE, Tenn. – NFL Network analyst Charles Davis is sold on Florida State defensive back Jalen Ramsey, and he suspects the Titans might be, too.

"I will say having talked to people in Tennessee, I'm firmly convinced that he is in the discussion … (at) number 1 overall,'' Davis said in a conference call on Thursday. "Even though there's never been a corner or safety that's gone number 1 ... we've had guys in the past (go early).

"So it's in the discussion, and (it's) because he has the type of play-making ability with the way the game is played now."

The Titans attended Ramsey's Pro Day on Tuesday. This week, Titans general manager Jon Robinson and head coach Mike Mularkey also attended Pro Days at Ole Miss, where they saw tackle Laremy Tunsil, and Notre Dame, where they watched tackle Ronnie Stanley.

The Titans have seen Ohio State defensive lineman Joey Bosa twice -- at his Pro Day, and during a private workout this week.

Davis, who played defensive back at the University of Tennessee, believes Ramsey is a special player.

He noted Ramsey "went and blew the door off things" at the NFL Combine in February. Ramsey was impressive at his Pro Day on Tuesday as well.

"He jumps 41.5, in terms of the vertical, he ran low 4.4s, or 4.41. And in the 40 yard dash, an 11.3 on the standing broad jump,'' Davis said of Ramsey. "He did all those things.

"Now how does that translate into him being a good football player? Not only is he a corner, we watched film on him as a freshman playing high safety. You watch him playing in the slot, watched him playing out wide. We saw all of those things with him and you pair it with Tennessee, which needs help all over the place, and they do need help in the secondary, and it's not one of those things that's just totally out of whack, especially with Dick LeBeau running the defense. And you know how (LeBeau) likes to utilize his play makers all over the map. Put them in prime spots to help his defense out.

"So the last two mock drafts I've had Jalen Ramsey going (to the Titans). ... I think he's number 1 overall on my top 50."
