In a GQ Q&A, Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey was asked about a bunch of NFL quarterbacks and broke them down in great detail:
Buffalo Bills rookie Josh Allen:
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.
Baltimore Ravens Lamar Jackson:
I would’ve picked [Lamar Jackson] earlier than 32. I think he’s gonna do a good job. Especially with the [Baltimore Ravens’] offensive coordinator—he likes running quarterbacks, likes that read option.
And just being honest about it, [Joe] Flacco sucks. I played him two years in a row. He sucks.
(He) does not (suck).
I think Marcus Mariota is a great quarterback for their team.
I think Tyrod Taylor is actually a better quarterback than he gets credit for, because he does not make mistakes. He’s honestly a Marcus Mariota type player, where he manages a game really well, always has them at least in position to be in the game late in the game. He just doesn’t have turnovers that often.
It was all schemes. He didn’t beat us. It wasn’t like he diced us up. It was literally all schemes. They were doing flat routes to the wide open fullback, and he’s running for 20 yards down the field four times during the game… So he didn’t really dice us up. It was their fullback and their tight end on over routes. But if you know how to work within your scheme then it means your good. I guess you could say he’s good.
Deshaun Watson and Carson Wentz
(Watson) will be the league MVP in a couple years. One hundred percent. There’s not even a debate about that. Him and Carson Wentz, for every year starting now until five to ten years, it’s gonna be them two. They’re that good.
Average to above average.
Dak Prescott, he’s good. He’s alright. He’s okay. I’ll put it that way. [Ezekiel Elliott] runs that team though. Everything runs around Zeke.
I think he’s good. I think he’s a winner. He’s a hell of a competitor. Coming off the play action, he’s the best quarterback in the league.
I think he’s good.
It’s not really Eli. I think it’s Odell [Beckham, Jr.]. I won’t say Eli’s good, I’ll say Odell’s good. And their connection is good.
Good. I think he’s just a really good leader too.
I think he’s decent at best.
Blake do what he gotta do… I think in crunch time moments, like last year’s playoff game—not as a team, because we would have trusted him—but I think as an organization, we should have trusted him more to keep throwing it.
He won them a Super Bowl so he’s good enough to do that. He had a hella good team, too, though. But as long as you can do what the team asks you to do, then you’re straight.
I don’t know much about him. I haven’t heard the greatest of stuff about him but I don’t know him personally so I can’t tell you.
I think he’s pretty good.
I think Matt Ryan’s overrated. You can’t tell me you win MVP two years ago, and then last year, you a complete bust, and you still got Julio Jones? There’s no way that should ever happen.
The Jacksonville Jaguars defensive back has emerged as one of the NFL’s top young talents, and one of its premier trash talkers. Not the greatest idea to give all these QB’s more incentive to burn you. That’s what you call some prime time bulletin board material
