The Jacksonville Jaguars selected Florida State defensive back Jalen Ramsey with the fifth pick of the 2016 NFL Draft. There's no question why teams wanted him; he has great size, speed and explosiveness, all of which make him a stellar football player. But the gridiron is not the only place where Ramsey's athleticism shines.

Although he's only 6-foot-1, Ramsey could soar over another person on the court when he was still in high school. At the NFL Combine, he had a 41.5-inch Vertical Jump and an 11-foot-3 Broad Jump. He can jump as high as Los Angeles Clippers power forward Blake Griffin despite being 9 inches shorter!
