Baltimore Ravens: Ranking Top 5 Positional Needs
2. Wide receiver
This position could be one of the biggest toss ups heading into the 2017 season. With Steve Smith Sr. gone, it leaves Mike Wallace, Breshad Perriman, and Kamar Aiken as the premiere receivers for the offense. If it stays this way, it is going to be last season all over again.
I am not taking anything away from these receivers, but they are not #1 starters in the NFL. Perriman definitely has the ability to, but he isn’t there yet. In this free agency class, adding a veteran possession receiver is more than a possibility. I look at Pierre Garçon as one of those options. He is coming off of a productive season with the Washington Redskins where he was able to eclipse the 1,000 yard receiving mark. At only 30 years old, he still has years left in the tank.
If the Ravens do not surround Joe Flacco with weapons, it is going to be a rough season.
