Ravens Roster Analysis: Strengths and weaknesses at wide receiver
It’s time to take a deep dive into the Ravens roster. Today we’re starting with the wide receiver position:
The Baltimore Ravens wide receiver position is the position being talked about the most this week because of Dez Bryant’s try out for the team. It seemed like a good place to start analyzing the position group with a little deeper of a look. While the Ravens have an unproven group of receivers they have never had this much excitement about a position group. Marquise Brown is expected to jump to the level of the NFL superstar and Miles Boykin is expected to have a breakout year.
That right there is enough to get Ravens fans excited. Yet then you add the excitement of Devin Duvernay and James Proche as rookies that seem better than the position they were drafted in, and you have good reason to be pumped up for the pass catchers in Baltimore.
Last season the Ravens receivers were relatively unproductive as a group. Marquise Brown caught over 40 passes. Willie Snead had 31 receptions last year as the second most prolific wide receiver on the roster. Will the Ravens see their receivers grow up together?
Instead of looking for new production out of players who at this point are what they are (Seth Roberts and Chris Moore) the Ravens are looking for rookies to do some on the job training. Only time will tell if it works, however the Ravens are doing it a much more exciting way this year. Young, developing receivers, who offer a lot of potential, that;s what the Ravens have at wide receiver.
