2. JALEN RAMSEY, CB, JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS
With just two seasons under his belt, Ramsey has already catapulted himself into the “best cornerback in the league” conversation. Building on an impressive rookie season, he put forth a 91.8 overall grade in 2017 which ranked third among cornerbacks. Perhaps the most impressive part of Ramsey’s performance is that his success has come while more often than not, shadowing opposing teams No. 1 receivers.
17. YANNICK NGAKOUE, EDGE, JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS
In his second year, Ngakoue had a breakout campaign playing on a loaded Jaguars defense. He established himself as a premier pass-rusher, producing the fourth-highest pass-rush-productivity among edge defenders (12.8) and ranking inside the top-15 in pass-rush grade (86.2). If Ngakoue can improve as a run-defender, he is a strong candidate to shoot up this list next year.
If Myles Jack wasn’t called down in the AFC Championship, he’s probably on the list. Just saying.
