To the many who are familiar with the work of Los Angeles Rams’ star player Jalen Ramsey, the four-time Pro Bowl cornerback being named the best in the business is expected. While the Green Bay Packers’ Jaire Alexander and Miami Dolphins’ Xavien Howard have made strong cases, NFL analysts named the LA lockdown defender as their pick for best cornerback in the league.
NFL Analyst Kyle Brandt says:
I love that he wants to cover the best wideouts every week. I love that he cares about being the best corner in the game. But my favorite part? I love that he HITS. Go look at Jalen hitting Amari Cooper. And Golden Tate. And Melvin Gordon. The hit list keeps going and going. And he’s a corner! Totally fearless. Shutdown corner. Smackdown hitter. Best CB in the sport.
