Earlier in the offseason, we discussed which players would be best to join the Baltimore Ravens from opposing teams. Now, lets look into the opposite of this hypothetical. If the AFC North teams were able to steal one player from the Baltimore Ravens, who would they add to their roster?

The expected players to be chosen would be Lamar Jackson. Ronnie Stanley, Mark Andrews, Roquan Smith or Marlon Humphrey.

Cincinnati Bengals would add Mark Andrews from Baltimore Ravens

The Bengals probably feel good about Joe Burrow, and they may see Ronnie Stanley as an upgrade over Orlando Brown, but he also brings far more questions when it comes to health. The Bengals certainly could use someone like Kevin Zeitler, a former Bengal himself, and he is an underrated thought for this specific team.

The Bengals also just lost Jessie Bates and Vonn Bell, so any of Marcus Williams or Kyle Hamilton would be a welcome addition to this roster. While those are the top options, the overkill option is Mark Andrews.

When you look at the Bengals' pass-catching corps, you see that they would typically line up with Joe Mixon, Ja'Marr Chase, Tee Higgins, Tyler Boyd, and Irv Smith Jr. One of those names stands out as a major question amongst a list of serious talent. When you think about replacing Mark Andrews with Irv Smith, we are talking about a player with almost no production getting swapped out for one of the best players at his position in the NFL.

With Chase and Higgins outside and Boyd getting the short middle, there is a big hole in the deep middle that Andrews would take up. It would turn this offense into one of the better units ever and would be hard for anyone to pass up.
