Good article by Mikey that I found myself agreeing with all the way.

Glad you put this up.

I too,.... :fishin: .... found myself agreeing with most of it.

 

Who can argue with this?....


 

Receiver: Except for the Cleveland Browns, the Ravens had possibly the worst group of receivers in the NFL. They didn’t have a possession or a go-to receiver. Fortunately, the Ravens might lose most of this group. Mike Wallace and tight end Benjamin Watson are free agents, with Watson likely to retire. The Ravens will probably cut veteran Jeremy Maclin. That leaves Breshad Perriman and Chris Moore as the top guys. That’s not good.  :nono:

 

The cupboard Is bare at WR. Kind of like the Orioles starting rotation.

 

Jefferson and Weddle are...ok...that's about it. They can't cover or break up plays against good receivers. They lose that battle.

 


 

Flacco has one, maybe two years remaining

 

Are you sure Mikey?

"For 17 years, we could point to No. 52 and tell the other players: 'Follow his lead. Practice like Ray practices. Prepare like Ray prepares. Be a great teammate like him,'" Ravens general manager and executive vice president Ozzie Newsome said in a release from the team. "It was our privilege to have him as a Raven. We are all better for having him here. His play on gamedays speaks for itself.

"Even in that small group who have the honor of being a Hall of Famer, Ray stands out. When you talk about the great players of all time, no matter position, he is among the greatest of the great."

Maybe they shouldn't go WR at #16....

 

 

Of the 13 receivers taken in the first round since 2015, the Raiders’ Amari Cooper is the only one to make a Pro Bowl. I’m not sure it’s a bad thing that there might not be a worthy receiver to take if the Ravens stay in the 16th slot....http://www.baltimore...0213-story.html

 

Here's a little hope....

 

I probably say and write some version of this every year at this time, but if four quarterbacks — Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, Mayfield and Josh Allen — go within the top 15 picks, and that seems like a possibility, you’d have to like the Ravens’ chances of landing a player who normally wouldn’t be around at pick 16.

I'm actually starting to become interested in us drafting Brown for RT. But they might even trade down a few spots since the talent drop off in the middle to late first round could be substantial.
