Selection: Jacksonville Jaguars select Florida State cornerback Jalen Ramsey

Analysis: Ramsey, who starred for the Seminoles the past three years, is considered the best defensive back in the draft. The Jags are obviously hoping he'll be their lock-down corner for the next decade.

Ramsey posted 52 tackles and a sack in 2015, with nine pass deflections. He didn't post an interception - mostly because quarterbacks rarely threw his way.

Ramsey is one of the most athletic players in this year's draft, so it's no surprise he was taken early on. He should provide immediate help for a Jags team in need of it.
