2. WR Nelson Agholor

While the Ravens decided to bring back Agholor on a one-year contract, the selection of Devontez Walker in the fourth round has created a logjam. By the end of the year, it should surprise no one if the Ravens eventually turn WR3 responsibilities over to one of their more promising young deep threats.

Agholor continues to have issues with drops (looking at you, loss against the Steelers), and he isn't the most effective player when he is asked to run some more complex routes. Agholor is slowly becoming more of a one-trick pony, but Walker could eventually start keeping more balls in the air as he grows into a more complete player.

Walker can already compete for snaps as a rookie due to his impressive speed and playmaking down the field. While he ran a limited route tree at North Carolina, Walker's proficiency on those routes coud end up outshining Agholor as a rookie. The WR3 role should be considered up for grabs.

If Walker is able to eventually become the third wide receiver on the depth chart, the position room will have a very interesting and diverse skill set. Between Walker's explosiveness down the field, Rashod Bateman's chain-moving catches over the middle, and Zay Flowers' separation skills, Lamar Jackson will have threats at all three levels in the passing game.
