1. Breshad Perriman:
In 2016, the Ravens finally got to take a look at Breshad Perriman. Perriman caught 33 passes for 499 yards and three touchdowns in what was basically his rookie season. Perriman was raw in his rookie season. He struggled with drops and route running. When he got the ball in the open field, he showed that he is a play-maker. Perriman had a few circus catches, but he hasn’t proven to be a consistent target.
The Ravens need to see more from their 2015 first round pick. He can’t just be a player who makes the occasional big play. Instead, Perriman must become a game changing talent. If the Ravens use him right, he can make a big impact. We need to see more than just the go route from Perriman. Speed makes it’s biggest impact when defensive backs are chasing it laterally. Slants, crossing routes, dig routes, these are the things Perriman needs to be doing more of.
Right now, Perriman has to show if he is going to be a star or Travis Taylor 2.0. Perriman has plenty of potential. He has speed and he has the size. Now Perriman must work on his craft to take the next step.
