Jalen Ramsey might be the most outspoken player in the NFL. The Jacksonville Jaguars star never shies away from sharing his opinion.

When it comes to opposing players, those opinions are usually negative. Ramsey is a seasoned smack talker, even though he is only heading into his third season in the NFL.

In a new interview with GQ, Ramsey levied a ton of insults at pretty much every starting quarterback in the NFL. He called Ben Roethlisberger "decent at best," said Joe Flacco "sucks," and called Matt Ryan overrated.

However, Ramsey saved the best (or worst) for Buffalo Bills rookie Josh Allen. Allen was a polarizing prospect entering the draft this year, and Ramsey clearly doesn't think he was worth the No. 7 overall pick.

"I think Allen is trash,” Ramsey said. “I don’t care what nobody say. He’s trash. And it’s gonna show too. That’s a stupid draft pick to me. We play them this year, and I’m excited as hell. I hope he’s their starting quarterback. He played at Wyoming. Every time they played a big school—like, they played Iowa State, which is not a big school in my opinion because I went to Florida State, and he threw five interceptions, and they lost by a couple touchdowns or something like that. He never beat a big school. If you look at his games against big schools, it was always hella interceptions, hella turnovers. It’s like: Yo, if you’re this good, why couldn’t you do better? He fits that mold, he’s a big, tall quarterback. Big arm, supposedly. I don’t see it, personally.”

Allen responded to Ramsey's comments and said he wasn't fazed by them.

As luck would have it, Ramsey and the Jags will face Buffalo this year. They'll travel to play the Bills on Nov. 25 in a rematch of last year's AFC Wild Card game.

There's a good chance Allen will be starting by that point. Ramsey will surely be ready for him if he is.
