3. More star power

I have a bold prediction. Jeremy Maclin will have a bounce back year, and he will become Flacco’s favorite target ever. On top of that Breshad Perriman will have a breakout year. Baltimore has been starving for production from their wide outs, I think they’ll get it in 2017. The Ravens will have more star power all across the board.

The only player the Ravens have in the NFL Top 100 was an offensive lineman. I’m not a huge fan of the NFL Top 100  that NFL Network does, but this has to change. Terrell Suggs is going to have a resurgent year with more help around him. Eric Weddle and Tony Jefferson are going to be the top safety combo in football. Woodhead is going to be a productive receiving option out of the backfield and once Dixon gets back from suspension he’s going to produce.

Next: Prediction of the Ravens 53 Man roster

There is never a football season without a surprise team. The Ravens are going to surprise everyone outside of Baltimore this season. With a retooled roster and more star power, Baltimore is going to be a contender once again.
