One Fine Day 2

The next Julio Jones and Terrell Suggs...Come on Down! :gorave:



Baltimore Ravens
Draft picks: Oklahoma WR Marquise Brown (No. 25 overall); Louisiana Tech OLB Jaylon Ferguson (No. 85); Notre Dame WR Miles Boykin (No. 93)
Day 1 grade: A
Day 2 grade: A
Overall 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.

Ferguson joins former third-round pick Tim Williams as a developing pass rusher for the Ravens. Ferguson could have gone much earlier, so I suspect Baltimore fans will come to appreciate his talents. Adding a larger receiver in Boykin made sense with the lack of wideout depth for Ravens. They should be looking for an inside linebacker as well as a young corner to develop behind Jimmy Smith and Brandon Carr, who are both well in their 30s, on Saturday.


Obviously we'll know in a couple of years how well these guys pan out yet right now it looks like Eric is striking gold.

What a great find for third round picks.

Jaylon Ferguson EDGE, LATECH

Height: 6-5, Weight: 259
Ferguson had some scouts talking him up as a first-round pick. That tells you about his talent. He is raw but the Ravens know pass rushers, and he brings plenty of production from the collegiate level.


Miles Boykin WR, ND

Height: 6-4, Weight: 220
I love this kid's ability. He has a chance to be a big-time producer if the offense can use him correctly. Lamar Jackson will love him, even after getting Marquise Brown in Round 1.



Ferguson doesn’t come with the pedigree of some of the players out of Alabama or Oklahoma, but he is respected as a power rusher who collected 17½ sacks last season. It’s hard to rack up double-digit sack totals in any league on any level, but nearly collecting 20 is impressive and usually impossible...........https://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/ravens/bs-sp-ravens-preston-third-round-20190426-story.html



Boykin appears to be a late bloomer. The Ravens thought highly enough of him to trade up to get him with the 93rd overall pick. Boykin’s stock started to rise at the scouting combine, when Notre Dame’s leading receiver in 2018 ran a 4.42-second 40-yard dash time.

That’s impressive, especially coming from a receiver with a 6-4, 220-pound frame. Boykin didn’t always make spectacular plays at Notre Dame, but he came up with clutch receptions. He had 59 last season for 872 yards and eight touchdowns.

Combined with Oklahoma receiver Marquise Brown, whom the Ravens took in the first round Thursday night, the Ravens have great speed. Boykin, because of his size and speed, can be used on the outside. Brown, because of his athleticism and versatility, can be used outside or in the slot..............https://www.baltimoresun.com/sports/ravens/bs-sp-ravens-preston-third-round-20190426-story.html

The Ravens remain aggressive in giving Lamar Jackson more targets on the outside, trading up to draft Notre Dame wide receiver Miles Boykin with the No. 93 overall pick. This marks the first time in franchise history that the Ravens have taken two wide receivers in the first three rounds in the same draft (Baltimore selected Marquise Brown in the first round). Unlike Brown, Boykin provides more size at 6 feet 3, 220 pounds. He led Notre Dame in receptions (59), receiving yards (872) and touchdown catches (eight). This upgrades what had been one of the most suspect wide receiver groups in the NFL.

The Ravens must feel like they got one of the bigger steals in the third round, getting Louisiana pass rusher Jaylon Ferguson with the No. 85 overall pick. Ferguson was ranked as the 39th-best prospect on Mel Kiper's Big Board. After losing Terrell Suggs, Baltimore gets the player who broke his Division I record with 45 career sacks. Ferguson was disinvited to combine after a background check turned up an old battery conviction. The Ravens did their homework on Ferguson, meeting with him three times during the pre-draft process............http://www.espn.com/nfl/team/_/name/bal/baltimore-ravens
