Summary:Ramsey has the speed and quickness to remain in the hip pockets of receivers, and the physicality and frame to be an enforcer as a safety in the middle of the field. That versatility paid for Florida State because they used him as a cornerback, slot defender and safety during his three seasons on campus. Ramsey filled up the stat sheet, despite his elite coverage ability that discouraged tests by opponents, limiting his opportunities to make plays on the ball in 2015. He has the rare combination of ability, frame, production and intangibles that has him in the running to be a top pick in the draft.

'Prime Time' fact:Ramsey became the first freshman to start the opener at CB for Florida State since Deion Sanders 30 years earlier.

Sweet stat:According to his Scouting Profile, Ramsey allowed a completion rate of just 38.5 percent on passes thrown to his defender.
