Draft Rumors: Ramsey, Alexander, Ravens, Steelers

The Titans, who hold the top pick in this year’s draft, have scheduled a visit with Florida State defensive back Jalen Ramsey, writes Chase Goodbread of NFL.com. Most expect the Titans to take Ole Miss offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil first overall, but they’re nonetheless doing their homework on Ramsey. Should Ramsey get past the Titans, he’ll have a potential suitor in the Cowboys, who pick fourth and have already met with him, tweets Rand Getlin of NFL.com.

More draft news. . .

  • In addition to his previously reported visit with San Francisco, Clemson cornerback and prospective first-round pick Mackensie Alexander will meet with the NFC West rival Rams, according to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com.
  • Alabama cornerback Cyrus Jones worked out for the Ravens on Friday, as Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun tweets. Jones, who projects as a slot cornerback and a return specialist, is viewed as a third- to fourth-round pick. The Baltimore-area native has said that playing for the Ravens would be a “dream come true.” In total, the Ravens had about 40 to 50 players in for a workout, including Jones and two Maryland defenders – Sean Davis (DB) and Quinton Jefferson (DT) – Zrebiec tweets.
  • The Steelers hosted four prospects Friday – safeties Deon Bush (Miami) and Jeremy Cash (Duke), Georgia Tech cornerback David White, and LSU offensive lineman Jerald Hawkins – per Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. Hawkins is the second O-lineman the Steelers have met with over the last two days, joining Indiana’s Jason Spriggs (link via Tony Pauline of WalterFootball.com).
  • The Buccaneers sent offensive line coach George Warhop to Cincinnati on Friday to work out tackle Justin Murray, reports Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times (Twitter link).
  • The Vikings had an assistant spend time on Thursday after Washington’s pro day with linebacker Travis Feeney, Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN tweets. Feeney had a strong showing at the combine but, unfortunately, had to undergo hernia surgery afterward.
  • Miami defensive lineman Ufomba Kamalu has picked up interest from the Chargers, Panthers, Eagles, Cardinals, and Broncos, according to Mike Kaye of First Coast News (via Twitter).
  • The Titans and Vikings met with Indiana defensive tackle Darius Latham on Friday, Pauline reports. Off-field issues, including two suspensions in college, could hurt Latham’s draft stock. If not, he might go as high as the third round.
  • UTEP defender Roy Robertson-Harris is drawing attention, having met with the 49ers and Panthers. He also has visits and/or workouts scheduled with the Raiders, Chiefs, Bears and Vikings.

    Titans need Tunsil to fill out the offensive line. You don’t draft a franchise qb last year and trade for a premier running back this year and put them behind a broken by taking a dB when u have a potential all-pro immediately staring you in the face.

    I agree this is a 10 year player and MM is a another 10 year player so you can say two are set at the top 5 positions a team needs for a decade. The others are top end CB, OLB

  3. UnanymousSuperBowler

    My opinion on TN’s pick is either The top CB or their future all-pro tackle , well if you think about it, We know jalen ramsey is a turnover maker potentially, and the titans are 30th in turnovers in 2015 stats. As for passing protection they allowed the most sacks in the league with 54 total sacks. And as for rushing, for the titans, they are 25th.
    So for the ultimatum the titans have to decide on turnovers or protection for your supposive future franchise QB, Mariota

      Jalen Ramsey’s only season playing corner he had only 1 turnover on a fumble recovery. No INTs no FFs. Just food for thought. He projects much better as safety than corner IMO not just based on those statistics.

      • UnanymousSuperBowler

        I know ramsey didnt make very many turnovers in college but the boy can catch, and when he gets to this league he will meet the coaches to put the icing on the cake and he’ll be possibly the next charles woodson-type DB
