The Jaguars selected Ramsey with the fifth pick in the 2016 draft from Florida State University. Ramsey had an incredible rookie season as he started in all 16 games and continues to develop into one of the league’s top cornerbacks.
As training camp approaches, Ramsey is expected to make a swift recovery and be a full participant, similar to his situation from last year. He suffered a small meniscus tear in his knee that he underwent surgery for prior to training last offseason as well.
With expectations high, the Jaguars are leaning on Ramsey to be a leader on defense. As long as Ramsey can keep his injuries to a minimum, this will be a strong season for Jacksonville.
