On Tuesday, the NFL unveiled their players voted from No. 40-11 on their Top 100 list and the LA Rams had just one player within that group: CB Jalen Ramsey at No. 37. (Don’t mind the tweet, they are stuck together)

The top-10 players on the list will be announced Wednesday night, but as of now, Ramsey will be rated as the third-highest cornerback on the list behind just Richard Sherman (No. 28) and Stephon Gilmore who will be among the top 10. This is Ramsey’s third-consecutive appearance on the list but he unfortunately fell 10 spots from his No. 27 placing in 2019.
Ramsey played only 12 games with 11 starts last year so it is understandable to see his numbers drop across the board. It was his first year where he missed any amount of time and only year where he failed to record multiple interceptions since being drafted back in 2016. He finished with 50 tackles, one pick, five pass breakups, and two forced fumbles split between Jacksonville and Los Angeles.
Did Ramsey get penalized too much for his 2019 season? Should he have ranked higher or lower?
