Cory Hughes: Dallas Goedert TE, South Dakota State
The Ravens are in dire need of offensive playmakers, at every position, not just wide receiver. Dallas Goedert would be the perfect candidate for the Ravens to select with the 16th pick. The last two seasons the Jack Rabbit tight end has put up consecutive 1,000-yard seasons while bringing in 164 catches and 18 touchdowns. When South Dakota State needed production from their star tight end, Goedert was certainly there.
In last year’s draft, the run at tight end started early. This time around, the Ravens could very well be the first team to take a tight end in the first round and Goedert is surely worth the pick, especially when you consider the depth the Ravens have at the tight end position. Benjamin Watson signed with New Orleans, Darren Waller still hasn’t been reinstated and Maxx Williams hasn’t exactly been what the team expected him to be coming out of Minnesota. Ozzie and the front office would most certainly feel comfortable trading back where they’re at to add more picks. But if they do, they might miss out on the South Dakota State star.
Recently, Goedert has said he would love to play for the Baltimore Ravens he could very well be the solution at tight end. Considering all the mishaps the organization has had with the said position. Over fifteen years ago, the front office used their first-round pick on a tight end coming out of Arizona State. A tight end that went on to be a two-time pro bowler and an All-Pro. You might know his name, Todd Heap. That was the last time the organization used a first-round selection on a tight end in their brief history. It proved to be worth the pick and Dallas Goedert could be too.
