5. Travis Taylor:
Career stats with Baltimore: 204 receptions, 2,758-yards, 15 touchdowns
The original Ravens wide receiver bust. Travis Taylor was selected 10th overall by Baltimore in 2000 and was supposed to join fellow top ten pick, Jamal Lewis, turn the Ravens offense into a strength.
While Lewis would go on to rush for nearly 1,400-yards as a rookie, Taylor failed to even record 300- receiving yards and was held under 10.0 YPR in just nine games. Taylor’s sophomore campaign didn’t exactly instill more confidence, either, nabbing a 42/560/3 stat line.
Then, in 2002, Taylor provided fans with a glimmer of hope. Taylor posted a 61/869/6 stat line and began showing glimpses of being a top receiver for Baltimore. Taylor would never even come close to replicating his 2002 season, nabbing just 73 receptions, 1,053-yards, and three touchdowns over his final two seasons with Baltimore.
Being a top ten selection killed Taylor’s reputation. Despite his 6’1″ 210-lbs. frame, the former Florida Gator never lived up to his billing. Yet, somehow he isn’t the biggest Ravens wide receiver bust of all-time…
