Wide Receivers: 6
Before the NFL Draft started the Ravens receivers were all the way down at 4 in my confidence rankings. This is a group that is exciting but it’s also a group that needs to prove it. Devin Duvernay and James Proche are rookies. While both players offer an exciting future, we don’t know what to expect out of them right now. Miles Boykin‘s production could shoot up in his second season but we still need to wait for it to happen. Am I encouraged by the Ravens plan at wide receiver? Yes, it’s just a very unproven bunch.
The one thing that should help Ravens fans sleep at night is the fact that Marquise Brown will be much less hampered, with his foot injury behind him. Brown had games where he looked like a superstar. The Ravens should have a true number one receiver in Brown yet we’re still banking on a receiver with 46 regular season receptions to his name. I have a hunch that Brown and Duvernay are going to be a good pairing that makes the receiver position a surprise strength. I’m hopeful, however this group ultimately needs to prove it.
Tight Ends: 8
When the Ravens had Hayden Hurst it was an embarrassment of riches at the tight end position. Mark Andrews and Nick Boyle are a good pairing of tight ends, it’s just not the crazy tight end surplus from a year ago. Andrews is a top-tier weapon at the tight end position. While.Boyle is easily the best blocking tight end. The Ravens probably need to find a third tight end to do all the things they liked to do in 2019, but a duo of Andrews and Boyle is very impressive. There is really very little to worry about when it comes to the tight ends. This is a tight end friendly offense with two tight great players manning the position.
