Steve Smith Sr. and Jalen Ramsey talk trash both during and after game

Steve Smith Sr. and Jalen Ramsey talk trash both during and after game

Jaguars rookie cornerback Jalen Ramsey had plenty to say about Steve Smith Sr. following the Ravens' 19-17 win in Jacksonville

And of course, the Ravens’ fiery wide receiver fired back.

The Smith-Ramsey beef extended from the field, to the locker room, to social media following the Ravens’ 19-17 victory. Smith and Ramsey exchanged words on the field after the game before they were separated.

Then in the locker room, Ramsey had plenty to say, considering the Jaguars (0-3) lost, again, and that Smith had his best game of the season – eight catches for 87 yards.

Ramsey took jobs at Smith being 37 years old, among other things.  Asked why things got heated between him and Smith, Ramsey said, “I don’t know. Ask him. When you’ve been beating the opponent that’s in front of you both physically and psychologically all day, they tend to get mad like that. I don’t care how old he is. If that made him angry then he can go home and sleep on it. I don’t care. It is what it is.”

Asked if he was made that Smith talked to him after the game, Ramsey said, “Yeah, but I’m not worried about him. He was still mad that I was locking him up. Alright, well sleep on it. I’m not trying to hear that after the game.”

Did Ramsey think he got in Smith’s head?

“What do you think?” Ramsey said. “You tell me. Any time I lined up on him – y’all go watch that.  Y’all tell me who got in whose head. He came up to me after the game. He’s an old man acting like that.”

Smith’s retort on Twitter was classic Smith.

“I gave U every opportunity to speak face to face,” Smith wrote. “But you found your voice safely behind closed doors. Young man, I don’t need ur respect! In 5 to 10 u will be retiring and they will be taking my measurements for something you will NEVER BE #HOFer. I got cleats with stronger thread then you!!!”

Just think, Ramsey and Smith were almost teammates. The Ravens tried to trade up from No. 6 to No. 4 to draft Ramsey. But the Cowboys declined and took running back Ezekiel Elliott at No. 4. The Jaguars took Ramsey at No. 5 and the Ravens took left tackle Ronnie Stanley at No. 6.

Things worked out fine for the Ravens. They love Stanley. They love Smith.

They love being 3-0. And clearly, Smith still loves talking trash.

Ravens Mock Draft Roundup: A wide receiver, defensive end favorites at 22

Ravens Mock Draft Roundup: A wide receiver, defensive end favorites at 22

This is not a drill. We are one week away from the 2019 NFL Draft.

Will the Ravens get Lamar Jackson help at wide receiver or will they focus on filling their holes on defense?

We will have answers to those questions in no time, but in the time being let's take a look at who experts are predicting they take with the 22nd overall pick.

NBC Sports Washington's Ben Standig and NFL.com's Daniel Jeremiah: DE Clelin Ferrell, Clemson

Ferrell had 38 tackles for loss and 21 sacks over the last two seasons. A young threat would fit in quite nicely for the new-looking Ravens defense. 

Bleacher ReportNFL.com's Charles Davis and Sporting News: WR Marquise Brown, Oklahoma

Brown, who posted 1,318 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns during the 2018 season, reportedly made a visit to the Ravens this week

It's no secret that the Ravens need help at WR with only two guys on their current roster who have caught a pass in the NFL. 

SB NationSports Illustrated and CBS Sports: WR D.K. Metcalf, Ole Miss

After an impressive combine performance and a picture surfacing of him looking insanely jacked at the gym, Metcalf is definitely the most talked about receiver in this year's draft.

Despite missing part of the 2018 season with a neck injury, Metcalf's draft profile describes him having "projectable upside to become a home-run threat as a WR1." Just what the Ravens need.

ESPN's Mel Kiper and Todd McShay: C/G Erik McCoy, Texas A&M

The center position is not seen as a sexy pick in the draft, but Bradbury's skillset is enough to get you excited.

He has three years of experience while at Texas A&M and was only called for five penalties in 2,811 snaps over his college career.
