One NFL quarterback thinks that Los Angeles Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey is capable of more than he's shown on the field thus far in his career.  

Per ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, the anonymous quarterback called Ramsey "the Amari Cooper of corners" because he's got "some inconsistencies you see on tape with footwork or freelancing a bit."

There are multiple superficial parallels between Cooper and Ramsey. Both players were top-five picks in their respective draft year; both requested trades from the teams that drafted them; and both have been named to multiple Pro Bowls. 

Cooper signed a five-year extension with the Dallas Cowboys that includes $60 million guaranteed this offseason, so Ramsey would likely have no problem with the comparison if he can secure that kind of contract. 

Ramsey has shown in the past that his ceiling is as high as any cornerback in the NFL. He was named to the All-Pro first team in 2017 when the Jacksonville Jaguars had the league's second-best scoring defense and advanced to the AFC Championship Game. 

That's the only season to this point that Ramsey has made an All-Pro team, though he's made the Pro Bowl in each of the past four years. 

Heading into his age-26 season, Ramsey seems poised to get back to that 2017 level in his first full year with the Rams.
