Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey made national headlines Wednesday because of his comments in a GQ article titled, Jalen Ramsey Has Something to Say (About Literally Everyone).
In the piece, written by Clay Skipper, Ramsey is brutally honest about some of the quarterbacks who were drafted high in the 2018 NFL Draft.
I think [Buffalo Bills draft pick Josh] Allen is trash. 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.

Pretty good stuff in this GQ piece on Ramsey. This is the stuff we're always wanting the guys to say. Glad it's out there. https://t.co/W2Fw2TCrNs
As you’ll notice, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes wasn’t mentioned in the piece. In fact, the last time Ramsey talked about any Chiefs was back in late June on NFL Network.
The panel, including Ramsey, revealed the top five wide receiver duos in the National Football League. The Chiefs’ duo of Tyreek Hill and Sammy Watkins came in at No. 5.
“I like it,” Ramsey said. “You got to see how Sammy gels in there with the offense and you have to see how Mahomes does this year—first year as a quarterback.”
Question: “You play them Week 5. Are you ready for that?”
“Yeah,” Ramsey answered. “I ain’t worried about it.”
Question: “So you’re coming up and you’re pressing Tyreek?
“Yeah,” Ramsey said again, albeit reluctantly.
If you’re wondering, the Vikings’ Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs (No. 4), the Lions’ Marvin Jones and Golden Tate (No. 3), the Steelers’ Antonio Brown and Ju-Ju Smith-Schuster (No. 2) and the Browns’ Jarvis Landry and Josh Gordon (No. 1) finished ahead of the Chiefs.
The Hill-Ramsey matchup will be one to watch on October 7.
