“I began fascinated with how earlier years they did like two corners after which they get like a slot for DB,” Ramsey informed reporters on Friday. “But I suppose they switched that up this 12 months, in order that they didn’t do this this 12 months. Because initially going into it I was hopeful that possibly I may get All-Pro at two separate classes, however they switched it up. So it’s what it’s, however I’m tremendous grateful and grateful.”
They truly switched it up in 2020. As of 2019, that they had a flex/catch-all defensive again place, permitting in idea somebody to make as a cornerback and as a defensive again.
It’s not a sensible goal, except he landed on a adequate plurality of ballots because the second cornerback and a adequate plurality of others because the catch-all. The actually greatest cornerback within the sport will get at least 50 of the 100 whole votes forged for All-Pro nook, with another person getting the majority of the catch-all vote.
For Ramsey, the unrealistic want to get the additional recognition flows from the pliability with which he performs.

That is simply the best way that I problem myself personally and push myself personally. So individuals used to solely play nook on the surface. Now taking part in everywhere in the secondary a little bit bit. I like to be seen as a defensive again extra than simply the nook. But both is okay or each is okay. As lengthy as I may also help make a huge impact on the video games for the workforce, then I’m all good.”
