2. Antonio Gibson, Running back/Wide Receiver (Memphis)
In a similar train of thought, Antonio Gibson is a player that would be perfect for the Ravens. The Ravens have one of the most inventive offenses in the NFL, so why not put a player who can play multiple positions? In the 2019 season Gibson caught 38 passes for 735 yards and eight touchdowns. He had 33 rushing attempts for 369 yards and four touchdowns. The one thing that stands out in the numbers is the average yards gained. Gibson averaged 19 yards per reception and 11.2 yards per rushing attempt.

Gibson only has one year of production to boost his resume coming into the NFL Draft. He’s a weapon of a spread offense that knew how to use him, and he still has some developing to do. This is a day three prospect to keep in mind. He’s ran a 4.39 second 40 yard dash at the NFL Combine. The Ravens should draft him to be a receiver and let Greg Roman use his versatility. The point is getting Gibson the ball in the open field is a good idea. The idea of taking him in the fourth round is a good idea.
The Ravens could use a slot receiver whose specialty is getting yards after the catch. Gibson is one of the more fun prospects that could be taken in the fourth or fifth round because of how many ways you can get him the football. He’s a 6’0″ 228 pound receiver with the ability to become a sneaky good play-maker. The Ravens would be a great fit for Gibson.
