Baltimore Ravens: Ranking Need Level For Every Position
Level Of Need At Wide Receiver: 10
The Ravens most pressing need is getting Flacco a top tier wide receiver. I have been preaching this since the Ravens lost to the Steelers, on Christmas. There is no getting around the Ravens lack of talent at this position. Breshad Perriman is a complementary receiver at best. His speed is a great asset but his hands and route running require serious improvement. If the Ravens think that he can become their number one receiver, they’re fooling themselves.
Even if Mike Wallace returns, he should not be a number one receiver. Micheal Campanaro has potential as a slot receiver, but him staving off injury is unlikely. The Ravens have a bunch of role players. Without Steve Smith Sr. they do not have a go to guy. It’s frustrating watching other teams enjoy top flight receiving talent. That’s what the Ravens need, and they need it more than anything.
The Ravens need to add a star receiver to the roster. It would also behoove them to add a veteran receiver. Pierre Garcon is a really solid option. He could be a possession receiver, and a strong fill in for Smith Sr. Whatever the Ravens do, they need new stars for Flacco to throw the football to.
