3 of 5

No. 6: Marquise Brown (2019)

Brown was a proto-Flowers, as the Ravens tried to surround Jackson with a speedy deep threat that could help them get the most out of his arm. While he only played three seasons in Baltimore before being traded to the Cardinals, Brown has still shown to be quite an effective burner.

Even in Baltimore, Brown was often beset by run-heavy offenses. In Arizona, Kyler Murray's injury hurt his production. Now that he has joined Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs, Brown could show more of the speed and talent that made him such an entrancing talent for Baltimore.

Patrick Queen was a solid pick for the Baltimore Ravens

No. 5 Patrick Queen (2020)

While Queen, who recently defected to join the rival Pittsburgh Steelers, started his Ravens career in fairly unremarkable fashion, his improvements helped him improve to the point where he was an All-Pro performer in 2023 and worthy of a contract in excess of $40 million.

Queen may rise or fall in these rankings based on how well he performs in his first year with the Steelers. This will be the true test of how much of his production bump was the result of playing alongside Roquan Smith and how much was him fixing some of the biggest flaws in his game.
