42. <p>At No. 7 overall, there’s still plenty of talent left on the board. However, it’s not often you find a Top-3 talent at No. 7 overall, and that’s exactly the situation the 49ers find themselves in here. While Ramsey might not be the best overall cornerback in the class, he’s the top defensive back in terms of athleticism and playmaking ability. So why wouldn’t San Francisco jump at the opportunity to add him to the roster?</p> <p>While the 49ers currently have a number of capable defensive backs, they’re looking a little thin at cornerback as of late. Only Trumaine Brock is a proven starter, while Kenneth Acker, Dontae Johnson and Keith Reiser are young, solid cover men who still need more work before we can start considering them quality starters. Jimmie Ward also offers plenty of versatility, but brings more value as a run defender.</p> <p>Meanwhile, Ramsey is an excellent all-around player who can start immediately at either cornerback or safety. And considering the 49ers’ situation at cornerback and how average Antoine Bethea looked last season, Ramsey could help in a number of ways. Adding an elite talent at No. 7 will certainly help San Francisco get back on track after undergoing a lot of change over the last two years.</p>. Cornerback. Florida State. Jalen Ramsey. 7. player
