Jalen Ramsey is known for many things. Being shy isn’t one of them.

The fifth overall pick in 2016, Ramsey criticized just about every starting quarterback in the league in an interview with GQ and even trash-talked Rob Gronkowski before their Week 2 matchup.

Gronkowski finished with two catches for 15 yards in a 31-20 loss. 

While Ramsey talks a big game, it seems he has no problem backing it up.

“I think he’s doing his job,” Jaguars tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins said on Taz & The Moose. “He’s speaking his truth. He’s calling it how he sees it, and he hasn’t been wrong. So people might not like him, might not want to be his friend because he’s telling them about themselves and they don’t like to hear the truth. But he’s going to keep doing what he’s doing. I’m behind him.”

The Jaguars reached the AFC Championship last season and are 2-0 heading into Sunday’s game against Tennessee (1-1). 

Once again, Jacksonville looks like a contender in the AFC.

“I think the whole entire defense (does),” Seferian-Jenkins said, when asked who sets the tone for the team. “I think the offensive and defensive lines set the tone for this whole entire team. I think it starts up front in the trenches with our big hosses. Without those guys, our team is a completely different team. The games are won and lost in the trenches, and I feel very good about our offensive line and defensive line.”

Leonard Fournette, who missed Week 2 with a hamstring injury, will likely return to action against Tennessee.

“He’s a leader on our offense,” Seferian-Jenkins said. “He’s the workhorse of this offense. Everything is centered around (getting him the ball). He’s our No. 1 playmaker.”
