TE: Ed Dickson Baltimore Raven 2010-2013

A former third round pick of the Ravens in 2010 he was actually taken before fellow teammate and TE Dennis Pitta. The Ravens thought they had the makings of the next Shannon Sharpe with Dickson as he had a lot of athletic ability. The problem is he didn’t have the hands to go with that talent. Numerous drops and balls bouncing off of his hands made the decision to allow him to leave via free agency at the end of the 2013 an easy one. He is currently with the Carolina Panthers serving as a backup to Greg Olsen and has three catches in eight targets.
