OXNARD (105.3 The Fan) - I don't know Jalen Ramsey, the gifted Jacksonville Jaguars DB who was so highly-regarded by the Dallas Cowboys in the 2016 NFL Draft that he was "tags touching'' with Ezekiel Elliott, Dallas' eventual choice with the No. 4 overall pick.

So I don't know how much he's trash-talking, how much he's being serious, how much he's trying to get attention or how much he's having fun when he tells GQ magazine this thoughts on an assortment of NFL QBs.

Of interest to Cowboys Nation, of course, is what the leader of the outstanding Jags defense thinks of Dak Prescott in his ratings book.

"Dak Prescott, he's good,'' Ramsey says. "He's alright. He's okay. I'll put it that way. [Ezekiel Elliott] runs that team, though. Everything runs around Zeke.''

When you review Ramsey's thoughts of the rest of the league's QBs, you come to realize that "good and alright'' are relative compliments.

He thinks Baltimore's Joe Flacco "sucks.'' He thinks Bills rookie Josh Allen "is trash.'' He thinks Atlanta's Matt Ryan is "overrated.'' He doesn't think Indy's Andrew Luck is "that good.'' That Pittsburgh's Ben Roethlisberger] is "decent at best.''

He is a "fan of (New Orleans') Drew Brees,'' and of Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers, and of New England's Tom Brady. He thinks Tennessee's "Marcus Mariota is a great quarterback for their team.''

And he predicts that Houston's Deshaun Watson will "be the league MVP in a couple years. ... Him and (Philly's) Carson Wentz, for every year starting now until five to 10 years, it's gonna be them two. They're that good.''

And was about Jacksonville's own QB, Blake Bortles?

Blake do what he gotta do,'' Jalen Ramsey answered, maybe anaylzing football, maybe talking trash, maybe having fun ... with more fun coming on this story when Jacksonville plays at Dallas on Oct. 14.
