Default Is this the correct way to design FPGA to DRAM interface?

Hi, there

I am designing an FPGA to DRAM interface, which uses 160MHz clock.
The clock cycle is 6ns, after gate level simulation with DRAM model and
FPGA netlist of my design, I realized that the propagation delay of IO pad
and RAM summed up to higher than 6 ns,

As a result, during reading with t_CAS set to 2, I only see data stable on
the 3rd clock edge instead of 2nd. From simulation it seems to me I shall
play trick by sampling data on the 3rd clock, but I don't want to go

Is that the correct way of doing things in the FPGA-DRAM design? What
are the pitfalls?

Thanks in advance.
