Just a 'for fun' question: on which position should the Ravens concentrate on in the NFL draft: WR, OL, LB, RB? That's assuming all of them have a BPA when our turn comes.

Of course, any plan to solidify the passing game depends largely on how much Jackson improves as a passer in his second pro season. While he made some plays with his arm as a rookie, he wasn’t as consistently accurate as anyone wanted. He acknowledged to reporters earlier this month that he knew his mechanics needed work.

Jackson said he has been working on those mechanics and other aspects of his passing since February.

Trade out of the first, get some more picks and then....OL... the game is won in the trenches.

then a nasty monster LB to tighten up the middle of the D.

“[Lamar] was amazing last year, and then they add in Mark Ingram,” Burleson said. “We forget how strong and angry of a runner he is. … [The Ravens] are just getting started. I think people assume that Lamar Jackson isn’t going to pass the ball this year, and I will tell you right now you are wrong. He’s going to light up the skies and torch the ground like he did last year.”

“Put on 20 pounds of muscle over the offseason,” Hurst said. “I’m kind of on a mission this year. I’ve got a lot to prove.”

Getting more picks is a good idea and giving OL is my priority too. But before I'd take an ILB I think I'd go  for a WR then an ILB.

Don't you think we should go WR for our first pick? Skill positions get gobbled up and we don't have (yet) a second rounder. Then OL and ILB?

It scares the hell out of me to go WR in the first round.

They can't draft from fear.  At some point they will learn to draft WRs.

OL has to be the priority. You can draft a stud at wideout but if the Oline pass protects like it did against SD it wont matter

Maybe we can have both. Draft OL in round 1 then package a 3 and 4 to move back into round 2 and still get a really good WR. It's a deep draft for receivers.

Over the past 10 drafts, 19 of the 125 wide receivers taken in the first three rounds have reached a Pro Bowl. That's just a 15 percent success rate.......http://www.espn.com/...t-draft-problem

 

Not good odds.

I'd like to see the stats on those taken after the first 3 rounds. Even lower than round 1-3 success rates I'm sure. The success rate is 0 though if you don't draft any.

Mel Kiper Names One Sliding Prospect Ravens Would ‘Have to Take’
 

This year, a couple of those players are at a Ravens position of need: pass rusher. Mississippi State’s Montez Sweat and Michigan’s Rashaan Gary – two prospects once widely seen as top-10 picks – could be there at No. 22.

If this happens they have to pull the trigger.

I agree with you on Ford. If he's there at 22 I'd take him and move him to LG.

I can go with this...........

 

 

NFL Network's Charley Casserly released his latest mock draft earlier this month, and he has the Ravens taking Oklahoma wide receiver Marquise Brown with the 25th overall pick.

Brown posted big numbers for the Sooners as a junior in 2018, racking up 1,318 receiving yards and catching 10 touchdowns from Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray.

The Ravens will enter the draft with the 22nd overall pick, but Casserly predicts the Ravens to trade down a few spots to grab a wide receiver. The move could turn out to be a win-win for Baltimore; the team needs an influx of talent at the position, and this year's group of wide receivers is as bunched up as Casserly can remember...........https://www.pressbox...-in-first-round
