Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Houston Texans: Keep Your Enemies Close – 5 Questions with Toro Times
4. If you could take one player from the Jaguars to put on the Texans, who would you choose?
"Tough one. I think I will go with Jalen Ramsey. I loved the kid coming out of Florida State and think he has immense potential. With the Texans secondary getting older with Johnathan Joseph and Kareem Jackson starting to lose their legs and Quintin Demps also in his 30’s, this secondary could use a little youth. There’s also a little part of me that considered Blake Bortles because I think he has the talent, but not having a good line in front of him has hurt him. He’d have a better line in Houston and he could throw those deep balls to Will Fuller. He also may not be so reliant on the tight ends, like Osweiler has been. But I’ll stick with Ramsey."
Ramsey is the clear and obvious choice for so many reasons that it’s barely worth discussing. He’s an elite prospect with a virtually limitless ceiling and he’d thrive in a Texans defense with few areas to exploit.
It’s quite interesting to see Josh mention Blake Bortles. There was a fairly loud sentiment before the season began that the Texans made a mistake taking Clowney over Bortles in the 2014 NFL Draft, but it’s hard to make that same assertion at this point. It’s difficult to explain just how bad Bortles has actually been this season. To be fair, Bortles would be coached significantly better in Houston so who knows.
