Draft prospect: Jalen Ramsey

The Dallas Cowboys have a lot of positions to address in the upcoming draft and secondary being one. The Cowboys hit a home run last year by drafting the versatile cornerback/safety Byron Jones with the 27th overall.

What can you say about the kid he is the future for the Cowboys in the secondary and its time for the Cowboys scouting department to add a few more young pieces to go along with Mr. Jones. One kid I already have my eye on is cornerback Jalen Ramsey from Florida State.

When you look at his tape and highlights the kid is all over the place making plays.  Dane Brugler had this to say about the future first rounder via CBSSPORTS.com.

Strengths: Ramsey has gliding athleticism with long strides and fluid change of direction skills, staying controlled in his pedal transition and collecting himself with ease in small spaces. He has above average anticipation, vision and instincts, seeing the field extremely well with uncanny awareness and timing to create turnovers and get his hands on the ball.

Weaknesses: Ramsey lacks ideal muscle and functional strength to routinely finish off-balance tackles.
