The self-proclaimed (and unquestioned) best player in the draft is Florida State defensive back Jalen Ramsey.
The Buccaneers could use a player like Ramsey to solidify their defensive backfield, if they can draft him. The problem is he won’t reach the Bucs at No. 9. The trade between Tennessee and Los Angeles kicked the debate meter up a notch since many felt he can play for the Titans because of his roots. Bucs fans wonder if that means he can fall some spots in the draft, but it is highly unlikely considering that Ramsey told ESPN’s Ed Werder who has shown him the most interest.
Jalen Ramsey says most interest from #Chargers, #Cowboys, #Ravens, #Jags. And he said again, “I still think I’m the best player in draft.”
All those teams mentioned pick ahead of the Buccaneers and all are realistic landing spots for the FSU standout. Does that mean that Tampa Bay is not interested? Not at all. In fact they traveled up to Tallahassee for Ramsey’s pro day and had nearly everyone from the scouting department in attendance — including general manager Jason Licht.
Can they trade up for him? Sure, I guess anything is possible, just don’t count on it. The Bucs value draft picks and are in the business of drafting as many players as possible, not giving up draft selections.
So yes, those teams may be showing the most interest, but it’s the most realistic interest.
