The Baltimore Ravens should think hard about drafting Dallas Goedert. The best reason to draft Goedert is that he is a rare breed:
Look around the National Football League, Ravens fans. How many elite tight ends do you see? We kind of live in a world where it’s Rob Gronkowski, Travis Kelce and everyone else. The tight end position is an important one. There are plenty of solid contributors, but there are few elite play-makers. Gronkowski and Kelce can be game changers. They are huge targets that can’t be covered by one player. They are arguably more valuable than some number one wide receivers. What if I told you, the Ravens could have one of those kind of players?
Dallas Goedert is a rare breed of tight end that can be the ultimate game changer. If Joe Flacco can get a broken down Dennis Pitta 86 receptions and 37-year-old Ben Watson 61 receptions, Goedert might be able to get 100 grabs as a rookie. The great part of that previous sentence is that I’m joking, but 100 grabs as a rookie actually could happen. Goedert would be the best weapon on the field and Joe Flacco views tight ends like I view a can of Diet Coke. A good tight end is a lifeline that he needs on a regular basis.
Goedert is a 6’5″ tight end with a huge frame and he is used to being a go to guy. In the past two seasons at South Dakota State, Goedert had 164 receptions. He is one of the most exciting players I have watched in preparation for this draft. The Ravens can’t get a player at Goedert’s level in the second round. He’s going to be a superstar.
