6. What can Charlie Kolar bring to the Baltimore Ravens

For all intents and purposes, the rookie season of Charlie Kolar was a wash. He got on the field late and showed a bit as a pass catcher in the Bengals game, but it was not anything that fans are building hope off of. Still, Kolar is entering year two, and he could be a big factor on the offense.

You have to remember back to the draft to see that he was taken ahead of Isaiah Likely last year. if Kolar does not get hurt, does he break out in the same what that Likely did last season? He at least could have provided another big-time target.

Still, year two will be huge for him. On a normal progression, he would be the backup tight end, but now Likely is pretty clearly ahead of him. Can he find a way to pass Likely back up, or are those days over? Even if he was good enough to push Likely and was the third tight end, that is a great option for the Ravens.

What can he show, and can he lock that role down?
