In the GQ interview read round the world, Jalen Ramsey had some strangely kind words to say about Philadelphia Eagles’ starting quarterback Carson Wentz.

At the tender age of 23, Jalen Ramsey may be the best cornerback in the entire NFL. And believe me, he knows it.

But who knew that the second year All-Pro corner was also an aspiring talent scout? Well, in a recent interview with GQ‘s Clay Skipper, Ramsey decided, presumably unsolicited, to give his opinions on a slew of the league’s present signal callers, with some surprising hot takes peppered in for good measure.

Needless to say, I doubt this is the direction Skipper assumed their conversation would go.

More from Philadelphia Eagles

From calling the Buffalo Bills‘ presumed starting rookie signal callers Josh Allen trash, to essentially casting his vote for Lamar Jackson in the Baltimore Ravens‘ current quarterback competition, almost no one was safe from the rath of Ramsey.

One of those few players who was however awarded a compliment from the former Florida State defensive back was Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz.

In a surprising turn of events, Ramsey anointed Wentz a future MVP-caliber quarterback alongside Houston Texans‘ signal caller Deshaun Watson, which is pretty high praise, especially considering that he’s never actually appeared in a game against Wentz at any point in his college or professional career.

For Ramsey at least, his fellow 2016 draft classmate passes the eye test with flying colors.

Though these words shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to fans in the Delaware Valley, as Wentz likely would have won the actual 2017 NFL Most Valuable Player Award had he not finished out the season on IR thanks to an incredibly unfortunate ACL injury that paved the way to the return of the Foles-era in South Philly and the franchise’s first ever Super Bowl victory over the New England Patriots, it’s still nice to know that one of the league’s best players appreciates generational talent when he sees it.

So as the Eagles inch closer and closer to the start of the 2018 NFL season, fans can take solace in knowing that their favorite team appears set at the quarterback position with a player who will be competing for MVPs alongside Watson “for every year starting now until five to ten years (from now)”.

And hey, if Wentz isn’t ready to start Week 1, fear not Philly fans, as his backup, Nick Foles “won them a Super Bowl, so he’s good enough to do that”. Jalen Ramsey, I couldn’t have said it better myself.
