Jalen Ramsey, Cornerback, Florida State Seminoles (Defeated Miami Hurricanes 30-26)

3 Tackles, 1 Tackle for a Loss, 1 Forced Fumble, 1 Interception

It’s hard to acknowledge cornerbacks in the game when we are awarding blitz points to college football top performers because their jobs are often time to not be noticed. If they’re covering their receiver, quarterbacks won’t throw their way. But Jalen Ramsey is a hybrid of a safety and a cornerback, and he played it perfectly in Florida State’s comeback win over Miami Saturday night.

Who can ignore how complete of a game he played? Ramsey had 2 solo tackles, 1 assisted tackle, a tackle for a loss a forced fumble, and an interception. That’s an amazing stat line for a cornerback, and honestly he could play linebacker if he wanted to because of how good he is.

Yes, Jameis Winston was Jameis Winston and Dalvin Cook was great. But it was Ramsey who came through in the biggest moments. And speaking of big moments, that’s another reason Ramsey is on here.

It was Ramsey who came up with the game saving interception to saver the Seminoles’ season once again Saturday night. Without his big plays in big moments, Florida State likely doesn’t come back to win that game.

So we are going to give him his due recognition this week.
