4. Tee Martin, wide receivers coach, Baltimore Ravens

Following the departure of David Culley in the offseason, the Ravens needed to find a new wide receivers coach. And given the lack of production the team had gotten from the position, the individual they were bringing in was going to have his work cut out for him.

They ultimately decided on longtime collegiate assistant Tee Martin who had most recently served as the assistant head coach and wide receivers coach at the University of Tennessee.

Martin is a former quarterback who was drafted in the fifth round by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2000 NFL Draft. He lasted just a couple of years in the NFL before finding his way into the coaching ranks.

He’s had separate stints with Power 5 schools like Kentucky, USC, and later Tennessee building a solid reputation as a coach players love to work with.

And that reputation has followed him to Baltimore.

Martin, along with pass-game specialist Keith Williams, has received plenty of praise this season for his work with the Ravens’ wide receiver group.

Marquise Brown has made significant strides and is on pace for not only the best season of his career but the best season by a wide receiver in Ravens franchise history.

Other young players such as Rashod Bateman, Devin Duvernay, and James Proche have looked good this year and you could easily argue this is the best wide receiver corps the Ravens have ever had.

Could the Ravens reward Martin for his efforts with a promotion to offensive coordinator? If they’d rather keep their search internal, he would easily be one of the top candidates.
