The NFL Draft Will Make Or Break The Ravens Offense
1. The Ravens Will Draft A Wide Receiver In Round 1
There are three special wide receivers in this draft class and the Ravens have a chance to draft one of them. Looking at the draft order, the receiver desperate Ravens should like what they see. There are three teams in the top 10 that need a receiver. The Titans need other things too; with the fifth pick they will likely go with a defensive player. The Buffalo Bills need a wide receiver but, replacing Stephon Gillmore at the cornerback position is their biggest need. With the ninth pick overall, the Bengals will almost undoubtedly take a receiver.
Corey Davis Is Worth Trading Up For:
Two of the top three receivers more than likely fall out of the top 10. If I had to bet on it, I’d say the Bengals are going to take Mike Williams. Williams would be the perfect compliment to A.J. Green. If the Ravens want Corey Davis they should trade up. The Ravens need for a wide receiver is drastic. A team that has almost always lacked star power at the position has never needed a receiver more. Davis is a big bodied weapon that could be special. He may be from a small school, but oh my goodness he is good. A weapon like Davis can come in right away and be the leading receiver of the team. Trading up for Davis is not unrealistic, the Ravens could do it. One thing is for sure, they should.
Even if the Ravens stay at 16, John Ross could be there. Ross is lightning fast and he is the real deal. The more I watched Ross, the more I was convinced he could be an Antonio Brown like player. All three wide receivers are special. If the Ravens want it badly enough they can make it happen. With an elite receiver, the Ravens offense would change completely.
