The 2020 NFL Draft has come to a close and there have been some amazing reactions to the Baltimore Ravens draft haul. These are some of the best.
You could say the Baltimore Ravens had themselves a remarkable 2020 NFL Draft class. The team addressed three areas of weakness on the roster at wide receiver, interior offensive line, and linebacker and turned them into points of strength by doubling down at each position. The team also navigated the draft brilliantly by getting terrific value with each of their picks. At no point did it feel like the Ravens were reaching on a prospect.
I’m far from the only one with this opinion, too. There were plenty of people who felt the same way as me about this Baltimore Ravens 2020 NFL Draft class. Twitter certainly had plenty to say, so we grabbed some of our favorite tweets and put them in a thread for you to see for yourself:
This is the final product of the Baltimore Ravens 2020 NFL Draft class, highlighted by Patrick Queen and J.K. Dobbins. Short of adding an edge rusher, this is a home run draft class.
Pewter Report’s Jon Ledyard has been someone frequently impressed by the Ravens 2020 NFL Draft haul and the selection of Iowa safety Geno Stone really put this class over the top. Ledyard certainly seems to think so.
Baltimore certainly got some amazing value and bit-time steals all throughout the draft. For me, Malik Harrison epitomizes that point.
We can think of some really bad picks, but overall the Ravens truly are one of the best drafting organizations in all of football. 2020 will be one of their best yet.
This offense is built only using players the Baltimore Ravens have drafted or signed as UDFAs. That’s incredibly impressive (and he forgot to mention Gus Edwards).
Baltimore hasn’t had much to offer in the kick/punt return game since the days of Jacoby Jones. Sixth-round pick James Proche may be the cure to that weakness.
The duo of Malik Harrison and Patrick Queen is almost unfair to the rest of the NFL. The two of them have quickly turned what was once a weakness into a major strength for the Ravens.
To everyone concerned that the team didn’t address the edge-rusher spot: the team is clearly confident in their young guys and can still make a move for a veteran like Pernell McPhee or Clay Matthews. Heck, they could even bring Terrell Suggs back. Don’t fret; trust in Eric DeCosta.
Baltimore definitely got the best of both worlds, adding talent to positions of need while staying true to a “best player available” mentality. Masterful work from Mr. DeCosta.
The most important tweet to end this thread with. Good luck, rookies! Make Ravens Flock proud.
