JACKSONVILLE – Jalen Ramsey made clear last season he was among the NFL's best young players.

He continued to get recognition as such this week.

Ramsey, the No. 5 overall selection by the Jaguars in the 2016 NFL Draft and a cornerback on the Pro Football Writers Association's 2016 All-Rookie team, was selected this week by NFL Media Analyst Elliott Harrison to his All-25-Under team.

Ramsey will turn 23 in October.

"Ramsey delivered as advertised last season in Jacksonville," Harrison wrote. "He held his own in coverage for a freshman starter. The proof was in the puddin' with Ramsey's impact, as the pass defense went from 29th to fifth in one year. With Ramsey, Telvin Smith, Malik Jackson, A.J. Bouye and Myles Jack, the Jaguars' defense is bursting at the seams with young talent."
