With this being one of the most talented and deepest wide receiver classes ever, I think it’s very possible for the Ravens to double-dip at the position. I really like the idea of the Ravens getting one big wide receiver and one small speedy wide receiver, just like last year’s duo of Brown and Boykin. The Ravens got their big, versatile receiver earlier with Shenault. Here in the fourth round, they grab their smaller speedy wide receiver in Texas’ Devin Duvernay.

Devernay may only be 5’10”, but he is built and runs through contact like a running back. His best traits are his hands, straight-line speed, and YAC ability.  A former track star in high school, he ran a blazing 4.39 40-yard dash at the combine. He may be destined to be primarily only a slot receiver in the NFL, but I think he can be a terrific one. He can provide some big plays as a rookie and develop into the long-term slot wide receiver with Willie Snead becoming a free agent next year.

Death, taxes, and the Ravens drafting a defensive lineman. The Ravens three-man starting d-line of Calais Campbell, Brandon Williams, and Derek Wolfe is big and imposing. Their depth behind them, however, could use some juice. UNC’s Jason Strowbridge adds versatility and some much-needed youth to the d-line group.

Strowbridge is a rugged 3-4 defensive end that fits the Ravens mold. His best trait is his run defense and edge setting ability. At the Senior Bowl, he showed his pass-rushing upside as he practiced as an edge rusher. He gives the Ravens added versatility as an interior rusher with edge capabilities. The Ravens love drafting from the Senior Bowl pool. They already added Wilson, Wallace, Duvernay and get another solid Senior here in Strowbridge.
