Cornerback Stuffs—Jalen Ramsey Moving Up

 By Nick Webster 
Jalen Ramsey
With teams playing more and more nickel defenses in the past 20-30 years and teams often playing their top corners in that role at least part of the time they are in a position to blitz from that position and also get involved in the running game and takedown ball carriers or even receivers on passes behind the line of scrimmage.

Here are the single-season leaders we've tracked in run/pass stuffs, which does not include sacks, which is a separate category. 
So far Jalen Ramsey had 8.0 run/pass stuffs in ten games and is on pace for 13.5 which would smash the cornerback mark I have tracked and would be an excellent number for a linebacker or defensive end so it's pretty remarkable what he is doing from his nickel or "Star" position while also tied for 9th in the NFL in interceptions.

  1. Winfield could tackle better than any DB since Blount ... a very good career ...
