NFL: LA Rams Trade for Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey

The Los Angeles Rams have acquired cornerback Jalen Ramsey from the Jacksonville Jaguars in exchange for a 2020 first-round pick, a 2021 first-round pick and a 2021 fourth-round pick.

The fifth overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, Ramsey has amassed 210 tackles, nine interceptions, 45 pass breakups and two forced fumbles in 51 career games.

He is a two-time Pro Bowler and former first-team All-Pro selection.

“Given the situation with Jalen, we made this decision based on what we thought is in the best interest of the Jacksonville Jaguars, for this season and well into the future,” said Tom Coughlin, Jaguars executive vice president of football operations.

With Aqib Talib going on injured reserve and Marcus Peters getting dealt to the Ravens, cornerback was going to be a big need for the Rams.

They addressed in it a big way Tuesday afternoon.

“We feel the trade that we struck with the Rams gives us great value for the next two drafts, and we remain very confident that our team will compete this season for a division title. Jalen was a productive player, but the time came to move on and we wish him and his family the best in Los Angeles,” added Coughlin.

The Jaguars now have 18 picks, including four first-round selections, over the next two drafts.

In 2020, the Jaguars currently hold nine selections (Jacksonville’s first-round pick, Los Angeles Rams’ first-round pick, Jacksonville’s second-round pick, Jacksonville’s third-round pick, Jacksonville’s fourth-round pick, Los Angeles Rams’ fifth-round pick, Jacksonville’s sixth-round pick, Seattle’s sixth-round pick and Jacksonville’s seventh-round pick).

In 2021, the Jaguars currently hold nine selections (Jacksonville’s first-round pick, Los Angeles Rams’ first-round pick, Jacksonville’s second-round pick, Jacksonville’s third-round pick, Jacksonville’s fourth-round pick, Los Angeles Rams’ fourth-round pick, Jacksonville’s fifth-round pick, Jacksonville’s sixth-round pick, and Jacksonville’s seventh-round pick).

In 2022, the Jaguars currently hold their original seven selections.
