The draft is always a crap shoot. I don't believe any of the mock drafts. Teams spread so much fog leading up to it you need a bs detector.

 

I would like to see Ravens get Anthony Brown but there's a ton of good WRs around. I would be happy if they drafted an offfensive lineman. While I know we need a replacement for both Zadarius Smith and Suggs, I think we've got an outstanding secondary and a few good potential young linebackers on the team.

 

Preferably they go O-line, WR, or Edge Rusher. Those are my top 3 priorities,

 

But what the hell do I know??

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.

“[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.”

Unbelievable! :gorave:

 

Eric just got a true play maker plus 2 players by trading back a couple spots. He read the board perfectly.

This guy will work perfectly with Lamar and Lamar's style.

Get him the ball......GONE! :yeah:

He runs the whole route tree. Great hands. Outstanding speed.

“He’s the only wide receiver in this class that I feel great about in the first round,” McShay said. “I don’t know if I’ve ever evaluated a wide receiver with the better combination of quickness and speed than Hollywood Brown. This guy is unbelievable. After the catch, good luck. He does this over and over again and this is today’s NFL game. I don’t see receivers like this in the NFL draft very often.”........https://www.baltimor...irst-round-pick

Well sounds like it could work but I'm concerned how is he going to make out at 166 lbs in the NFL?

 

I feel similarly about Lamar.

 

Great moves by DeCosta on the trade to get more picks though.

Size is a concern.......

 


 

Concerns over size: The most popular knock on Brown is his thin frame. He’s 50foot-10 and doesn’t see himself getting any bigger than 175 pounds. That could be a problem on contested catches against sizable cornerbacks. It also goes against the thought that the Ravens would bring in bigger receivers who have a large catch radius for Jackson. Durability is a concern. Brown isn’t expected to be cleared from a Lisfranc surgery until training camp in July. He suffered the foot injury on Dec. 1 in the Big 12 championship game before he played through it in the Orange Bowl.

 

BUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :cop:

Antonio Brown: 5'10" 178 lbs.

DeSean Jackson: 5'10" 175 lbs

 


 

Brown has terrifying speed and can score a touchdown every time he touches the ball. He has the ability to take the top off defenses and turn short passes into long gains. Brown will force defenses not to stack the box against the run-heavy Baltimore offense..........http://www.espn.com/...-for-every-pick

25 Ravens

Marquise Brown, WR, Oklahoma

I love this kid. I think he's an explosive player. Yes, he's small at 170 pounds, but this guy can fly. If you're gonna make Lamar Jackson a better quarterback, you need good players around him to make him better and this kid will help. Grade: A..........https://www.cbssport...rst-round-pick/

PRO BOWLERS

These prospects are regarded as difference makers based solely on their talent. They should make immediate contributions as rookies and rank among the top 10 at their position within two to three years. They are ordered according to how they grade out in my book.

1) Kyler Murray, QB, Oklahoma
2) Ed Oliver, DT, Houston
3) Jawaan Taylor, OT, Florida
4) Noah Fant, TE, Iowa
5) Devin Bush, LB, Michigan
6) Garrett Bradbury, C, N.C. State
7) Marquise Brown, WR, Oklahoma
8) Montez Sweat, Edge, Mississippi State
9) Andre Dillard, OT, Washington State
10) Christian Wilkins, DT, Clemson
11) Jonah Williams, OT, Alabama
12) Johnathan Abram, S, Mississippi State
13) Byron Murphy, CB, Washington
14) Elgton Jenkins, C, Mississippi State
15) Rashan Gary, Edge, Michigan
16) Deebo Samuel, WR, South Carolina
17) Greedy Williams, CB, LSU
18) Drew Lock, QB, Missouri...........http://www.nfl.com/n...gn=trendingNews

 

Baltimore Ravens
Draft pick: Oklahoma WR Marquise Brown (No. 25 overall)
Day 1 grade: A
Draft analysis: Multiple NFL general managers told me they would have a hard time picking Brown, a 166-pound receiver, in the first round. Sure, he lacks size, but his talent reminds me of DeSean Jackson, who was also under 170 pounds at the NFL Scouting Combine when he came out. If Brown has that sort of career, the Ravens will have done well. Plus, they gained two Day 3 picks (Nos. 127 and 197) by trading down three spots in a deal with the Eagles and still selecting the guy they likely wanted at No. 22.........http://www.nfl.com/n...gn=trendingNews


 

25. Marquise "Hollywood" Brown, WR, Baltimore Ravens

I love this pick. The Ravens haven't had a great track record at the wide receiver position, but have no fear. This guy was the best player available and a great fit. Has wow speed and his yards after the catch are amazing.....http://www.nfl.com/n...sis-for-round-1

It is a good pick.  I would have taken Sweat.  I guess the heart thing scared them off.  I think he will be a transendent rusher.
