2. Wide Receiver:
The Baltimore Ravens went into the 2020 NFL Draft without addressing the wide receiver position. Much of the talk prior to free agency revolved around the idea of maybe signing Emmanuel Sanders or A.J. Green. Sanders went to the New Orleans Saints and it didn’t look like the Ravens tried to get him. A.J. Green was surprisingly franchise tagged by the Cincinnati Bengals. Then speculation about the Ravens going after receivers in the draft was one of the main talking points from March all the way until the NFL Draft near the end of April.

DeCosta kept building up the defense. He drafted Patrick Queen in the first round. Then he added another running back in the second round. Receivers dropped off the board at an historic rate and it wasn’t until the third round where the Ravens got a receiver. They drafted Devin Duvernay out of Texas. In the sixth round the Ravens drafted James Proche. It didn’t take long for fans to obsess over both receivers. Duvernay is expected to be good and fans see Proche as a diamond in the rough like Antonio Brown.
Speaking of Antonio Brown… It’s all anybody can seemingly talk about right now. All offseason long fans have asked the question, will they or won’t they? Lamar Jackson is in favor of bringing Brown on the team and he’s worked out with him this offseason. Will the Ravens add Marquise Brown‘s cousin? Probably not. Will we stop talking about it? There’s not a chance that we will. While the Ravens only added a third round and a sixth round pick at wide receiver we’ve been talking receivers the whole time.
