vmax Posted April 30, 2016 Share Posted April 30, 2016 The Ravens have a plan and that is to get as many fast, talented players in rabid competition for a starting position. The cream will rise to the top. Look at the logjam at RB right now...... Dixon joins an incredibly crowded backfield competition that already includes Justin Forsett, Buck Allen, Lorenzo Taliaferro, Trent Richardson, Terrance West and Terrence Magee.Dixon, 5-foot-10 and 215 pounds, was a highly productive player throughout his college career. Dixon put up 87 touchdowns, which is the second most in FBS history.Dixon churned out 1,070 rushing yards, 467 receiving yards and 26 total touchdowns last season despite missing two games with an ankle issue. He is a dual-threat back who can catch passes out of the backfield, and was college football’s top-graded running back as a receiver by Pro Football Focus.http://www.baltimoreravens.com/news/article-draft/Round-4-Ravens-Draft-RB-Kenneth-Dixon-At-No-134/df89195f-601d-4014-a783-4bb23956baa3 Out of that group will emerge a strong corps. Then we have them aggressively trying to develop enough talent to make life hell for quarterbacks.... Judon...The 6-foot-3, 275-pound product absolutely crushed his small-school competition this year, finishing with 20 sacks, 23.5 tackles for loss, three forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries.Judon will likely move to outside linebacker with the Ravens, where he can immediately be unleashed as a situational pass rusher.The Ravens already drafted two pass rushers earlier in the draft with Kamalei Correa in the second round and defensive end Bronson Kaufusi in the third round. But Baltimore came into the draft targeting several pass rushers, and in today's NFL a team can never have enough, especially with Terrell Suggs and Elvis Dumervilin the twilight of their careers.Judon won the Gene Upshaw Trophy as Division II's top defensive lineman and was the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference's Defensive Lineman of the Year They have 67 highly talented TE's, 587 receivers, 34 CB's, defensive lineman out the yahoo all of whom will battle it out for roster spots. You get the picture? It will come together. I'm just beginning to see it and I'm getting excited.Trestman is going to be able to do so many things with the offense....anything he wants to do.Same for Pees.And once again it will be raining talent on Special Teams. Harbaugh and Ozzie set this tone and plan in place. They are dead set on stopping the nonsense and bringing Ravens football back. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
