Baltimore Ravens: Ranking Need Level For Every Position
Level Of Need At Tight End: 5
The tight end position is kind of like the running back situation. The Ravens have a perfectly suitable answer at the position but they could justify bringing in a super star. Things worked out fairly well for the Ravens tight end group. Dennis Pitta restructured his deal and showed that he could start where he left off. Ben Watson will likely be cut for cap reasons. Crockett Gillmore, Darren Waller, Maxx Williams and Nick Boyle will compete for the remaining spots on the roster.
Pitta is Flacco’s go to target. In fact, he had 86 receptions this season. The Ravens have a solid group of tight ends. I would argue that the tight end group has not even scratched the surface of their potential. Gillmore may be the most talented of all the Ravens tight ends, and he has battled various injuries. Boyle and Waller missed time this season because of suspensions.
The Ravens don’t need to do anything at the tight end position. That being said, they don’t have a Rob Gronkowski like player. If they could find an unstoppable target at this position, they should make it happen.
