3. Maxx Williams:
Career stats with Baltimore: 47 receptions, 354-yards, 2 touchdowns
With the idea of becoming the best tight end the Ravens have had since Todd Heap, the Ravens traded up in the second round of the 2015 draft to select Minnesota’s Maxx Williams. The Ravens not only believed they had landed the best tight end in the draft, but they thought they ruined the Steelers draft plans by leapfrogging them in the draft to own the rights to Williams.
Instead, the 6’5″ 257-lbs., athletic marvel was consistently underwhelming. Williams failed to outshine guys like Crockett Gillmore and was constantly battling injuries. In fact, Williams missed the entirety of the 2016 season with a knee injury. But, it’s not like Williams was lighting the league on fire before the injury.
As you can see above, Williams has well-below even 10.0 YPR (7.3) and just two touchdowns to his name. Plus, Williams is always nicked up and I truly don’t believe we will ever see Williams at 100%.
Williams was barely 21-years old when he was drafted, so perhaps he can still turn it around. However, with 2018 marking the last year on his rookie contract, it’s hard to imagine the Ravens resigning him, short of a Pro Bowl campaign that he clearly isn’t capable of recording.
