The 2015 NFL Draft haunts Ravens fans for some of the biggest misses in team history, but today we look at the men the team passed on for Breshad Perriman.
There’s nothing quite like sitting back and moping about what could’ve been. Today, we take a look back to the 2015 NFL Draft and kick ourselves over the talent Ravens could’ve had.
This draft class as a whole has been underwhelming, considering the massive expectations it was given. Besides All-Pros like Todd Gurley and Marcus Peters, there were plenty of swings-and-misses by a ton of teams. The Ravens, unfortunately, had some extremely bad luck when it came to the 2015 NFL Draft.
Bust upon bust, the Ravens 2015 draft class was disappointing to say the least. Maxx Williams is a name that stings quite a bit, but nothing makes a Ravens fan more upset than the name “Breshad Perriman.” The former Central Florida wide receiver was supposed to be a franchise level player who would stretch the field for Joe Flacco for years to come. Instead, he was injured immediately and never even got close to growing into his potential. Now, Perriman is on the outside looking in for Baltimore and could ultimately be cut before the start of the 2018 NFL season.
With three years passing by so fast, it seems right to officially label Perriman a bust and wonder what would’ve happened if the Ravens took someone else in place of him. Hindsight is always 20-20, so it’s easy to look back and say “I told you so.” However, some players just made sense at the time and it was frustrating that Baltimore passed on them.
The following five players are all individuals who stand out among the rest. Some of them would’ve left us scratching our heads back then, but some would’ve energized the fan base. Regardless, these guys all would’ve been far better picks that Perriman. Without further ado, let’s look at who Baltimore shouldn’t have passed on for Breshad Perriman…
