Ravens news: An intriguing OC candidate, a ludicrous 2023 mock, and more

Right off the heels of Greg Roman’s departure, the Baltimore Ravens have begun planning the future of their offensive identity.

The Ravens are one of ten teams in the league currently looking for a new offensive coordinator for 2023, and there’s already one rumor coming out of the woodwork.

According to Tom Pelissero and Ian Rapoport, the Ravens requested to interview Rams pass game coordinator and quarterbacks coach Zac Robinson on Friday.

Robinson was promoted to his current position this past season after serving assistant roles and ranks as one of the more under-the-radar options on the list of potential offensive coordinator replacements.

Robinson also received an interview request from the Los Angeles Chargers.

2023 NFL mock draft 1.0: Ravens among four teams selecting quarterbacks (Daniel Jeremiah, NFL)

It’s never too early to start on a mock draft, but that doesn’t mean the mock in question is necessarily accurate. In his preliminary 2023 NFL mock draft, Daniel Jeremiah had Baltimore selecting Florida quarterback Anthony Richardson at pick No. 22.

Yes, Jeremiah released this after the Ravens’ end-of-season presser in which the franchise re-affirmed their commitment to Lamar Jackson.

Jeremiah writes:

Baltimore’s brass was steadfast this week in its desire to build around Jackson for the future. But if contract talks don’t progress in a positive direction in the coming months, they could apply the franchise tag on the former MVP, buying time for Richardson to eventually be ready to play.

Make it make sense.
