3. Devin Duvernay, WR, Baltimore Ravens

The Ravens made an effort to bolster the wide receiver position in the offseason signing Sammy Watkins in free agency and adding both Rashod Bateman and Tylan Wallace in the 2021 NFL Draft.

But none of those additions should preclude the Ravens from getting Devin Duvernay more involved in the offense.

A third-round pick in last year’s draft, Duvernay excelled on special teams as Baltimore’s primary kick returner even taking one 93 yards to the house for his first career NFL touchdown.

As the season went on, the Ravens began to use him more on offense, especially given their obvious deficiency at the wide receiver position.

Still, he finished with just 20 catches for 201 yards while adding an additional 70 yards on the ground, helped out by a 42-yard dash,

Duvernay is hardly a household name just yet, simply because he didn’t receive the opportunity to become one in 2020. But those who watched know just how explosive and dynamic he was every time he touched the ball.

The Ravens must do a better job of getting him touches in 2021. But until then, he’ll remain the Ravens’ secret weapon.
