THE PLAYER- Kurron Ramsey was a two year full-time starter at Alabama State. The big safety was a redshirt his freshman year, but then went on to play in over 40 games. The SWAC safety played at a high level week in and out as he was able to make plays against FBS competition with 5 tackles vs Auburn. Ramsey was named to the FCS Bowl and Tropical Bowl.
STRENGTH- Has desired size you like for a safety. Has uncommon short area quickness and burst for safeties his size. Reads QBs eyes well. Heatseeking missile to the football. Closes quick on the ball. High motor. Wrap up tackler in the open field. Not afraid to deliver a big hit. Magnetic personality that allows his teammates to gravitate to hit.
WEAKNESSESS- Average range over the top. Doesn't wrap when deliver big hits. Not special in man coverage. Slot receivers will cause some problems for him. Struggles to detach from blocks when playing closer to the line of scrimmage. Turns are smooth but he doesn't explode out of the turns. He gradually builds up speed to the football. Can be over-aggressive at times on playaction.
THE VERDICT- Kurron Ramsey is that case of a player that would be higher on many teams boards if he wore an FBS helmet. He has the ability to elevate to the level of competition. You have to like the size and athleticism. He moves well for a bigger safety. He isn't a ballhawking free safety at the next level, however he can be serviceable if he gets the experience. His aggressiveness against the run would also serve him as a strong safety. He is willing to stick his nose in and make a tackle, cover a tight end or play the flats. He can be highly effective in underneath coverage. He has the eyes to locate and find the ball. He can operate as a robber underneath. He may be better as a box safety than free if he can clean up his tackling. The fact that he can play both is a major plus. He does make some plays in coverage over the top. He will have to close the deep windows faster at the next level. He can be an immediate special teams contributor and depth player. He has room to grow in the position and while he might not be a top tier safety he can eventually be a value starter if he reaches his potential.
