Fresh off helping the Los Angeles Rams go on a playoff run and win the Super Bowl, star defensive back Jalen Ramsey has a new perspective on the game's top wide receivers.

Ramsey revealed his list of the top-five NFL wide receivers this week during a podcast episode. Two of the five are his teammates.

Ramsey's top-five list (in no particular order) includes: Davante Adams, Tyreek Hill, Deebo Samuel, Odell Beckham Jr. and Cooper Kupp.

You'll notice guys like Ja'Marr Chase, Justin Jefferson and Stefon Diggs aren't included. They're probably close, though.

Jalen Ramsey previously was highly complimentary of Deebo Samuel. The two met in the NFC Championship last season.

"It is tough to do at times just because he's moved all over the place, so if you're not in specific, matched-up coverages, they can try to get him in favorable positions, I would say," Ramsey said of Samuel, via 49ers Web Zone.

"He's dominant at every position that he plays, whether he's at the outside receiver, he's at slot, or running back. So regardless, it's a challenge for whoever's going to be going up against him wherever he's lined up at.

"(He's a) super-important piece to the puzzle for their team and just a great player, and yeah, we've got to figure out a way to limit his impact this week."

Who do you think is the best wide receiver in the NFL right now?
