2020 NFL Draft mock: Baltimore Ravens take a wide receiver late
31. Baltimore Ravens: Jalen Reagor, WR, TCU
Yes, I am entirely aware that the Baltimore Ravens selected a wide receiver in the 2019 NFL Draft in Marquise Brown. I’m also aware that the Ravens offense is one of, if not the, best in the NFL. So then why am I mocking them a wide receiver here? Because why the heck not?
Outside of “Hollywood” Brown, Baltimore’s wide receiving corps is bleak. Willie Snead is nothing more than a veteran presence and third-receiver while Miles Boykin has yet to prove he’s more than a capable role-player. In TCU’s Jalen Reagor, the Ravens are adding a T.Y. Hilton-Esque player to their receiving core.
Reagor gives Baltimore speed-for-days in an already fast offense. Being able to dunk the ball off to Reagor and let him feast isn’t fair to the rest of the league.
An offense featuring Reagor and Brown at wide receiver and Lamar Jackson throwing them the ball is absolutely terrifying for 31 NFL teams. For the Baltimore Ravens, it’s a match made in Heaven and a pick that seems unfair to everyone else.
Besides, Reagor already rocks the purple and black for the Horned Toads. Why not just change the mascot to a Raven and keep him in the same color scheme?
32. Seattle Seahawks: Xavier McKinney, S, Alabama
The Seattle Seahawks miss their center fielder in Earl Thomas, so they’ll find a potential replacement for him in Alabama’s Xavier McKinney. McKinney has been impressive for the Crimson Tide and will give the Seahawks a ball-hawking presence to make their secondary a little more credible.
