JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jalen Ramsey’s physicality was evident in college, in training camp and in his first preseason game.

The Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback had three tackles, all in the first two drives, during his NFL debut Saturday against Tampa Bay and provided tight coverage on Buccaneers receiver Mike Evans.

Ramsey was everything the Jaguars expected — maybe even more — when they selected the former Florida State standout with the fifth overall pick in the NFL draft.

Coach Gus Bradley says Ramsey has good poise and technique, with both allowing him to feel comfortable on the field.
