Jalen Ramsey has had every opportunity he could to take a shot at Trevon Diggs, but the Los Angeles Rams cornerback has high praise for his contemporary.
While many would have expected Jalen Ramsey to crack a joke or take a shot at Trevon Diggs, the Los Angeles Rams cornerback had nothing but praise for the Dallas Cowboys cornerback.
In a recent interview with The Pivot PodcastRamsey revealed that if anyone compares the two, he actually has a lot of respect for Diggs, although he’s not a fan of it.
As Ramsey points out, he and Diggs are very different athletes and approach the game in very different ways. And while the results look different, Ramsey seems to think both he and Diggs are effective and can achieve quite a bit when they’re on the field.
Although he was offered an opportunity to capitalize on some of Diggs’ shortcomings in the way he approaches various scenarios, Ramsey made sure to point out Diggs’ strengths and the fact that he had 11 interceptions last season caught.
Los Angeles Rams: Jalen Ramsey praises Trevon Diggs as he discusses differences in playing styles
“It’s a different style, the way he plays,” Ramsey explained. “I agree, if you’re a guy who plays a lot in phase like he does, you have to have a lot of picks, which he does. He does, so it works for him. He’s one of the best at that.”
Through all of this, Ramsey also ensured Diggs was able to take more risks and catch more interceptions than many other defensemen in the league. While this doesn’t work out in his favor at times, Diggs is able to pay out these gambles fairly frequently.
And it seems he’s earned some respect from Ramsey in the process.
