Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey has labelled Buffalo Bills rookie quarterback Josh Allen "trash" and said he cannot wait to expose him when their teams meet this season.
Third-year DB Ramsey, never shy of offering frank opinions, delivered his withering assessment of the first-round pick in an extensive interview with GQ.
"I think Allen is trash," Ramsey said.
"I don't care what nobody say. He's trash. And it's gonna show too. That's a stupid draft pick to me.
"We play them this year and I'm excited as hell. I hope he's their starting quarterback.
"If you look at his games against big schools, it was always hella interceptions, hella turnovers. It's like, 'Yo, if you're this good, why couldn't you do better?'
Based on @jalenramsey comments in @GQMagazine, here is how he fared against each QB organized by his reviews.— NFL Research (@NFLResearch) August 15, 2018

"He fits that mould, he's a big, tall quarterback. Big arm, supposedly. I don't see it, personally."
Allen may get a chance to respond on the field with the Bills facing the Jaguars in Week 12, but said he was unconcerned by Ramsey's comments having been initially unaware of them.
"He's not on my team, he's not my team-mate. It doesn't bother me," Allen told reporters.
Ramsey opined on several other quarterbacks, suggesting rookie Lamar Jackson should have been selected before Baltimore made him the 32nd overall pick, and claiming his Ravens team-mate Joe Flacco "sucks".
He was more complimentary of Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Marcus Mariota, Tyrod Taylor, Deshaun Watson, Kirk Cousins and Carson Wentz.
However, Ramsey added that he believes Jared Goff is "average to above average," Dak Prescott is "alright” and Matt Ryan is "overrated."
