Raven first round pick: Pass Rusher or CB?

Raven first round pick: Pass Rusher or CB?

For the Ravens, the secondary and the pass rush have been identified by most as the positions in most need of new blood. Luck shines on the Ravens in this case, as in a year where the Ravens need immediate help, both cornerbacks and pass rushers have stacked classes for the 2017 NFL Draft. Three of the five executives polled by Daniel Jeremiah called this the cornerback class, in particular the deepest in the draft. The secondary issues have plagued the Ravens since 2011. This year’s class presents the ultimate opportunity to fix the problem for the next 5 seasons. However, first round...

Chance Warmack could find second life with Ravens

Chance Warmack could find second life with Ravens

The Ravens could find themselves in need to again shuffle their offensive line. Ricky Wagner has reportedly already rebuffed the Ravens first offer, per Jason La Canfora. The dominos that would be due to fall could see Alex Lewis moved to right tackle, as he manned the blind side in college, and could be better suited for it as his leverage issues would not be as pronounced in the run game. If Wagner leaves and Lewis kicks outside, the Ravens will have a whole at guard. Chance Warmack could fill that hole. While he missed most of last season with injury, Warmack presents the oustanding...

Calais Campbell could upgrade five technique position for Ravens

Calais Campbell could upgrade five technique position for Ravens

The Ravens defensive line is usually thought of as the deepest unit on the team. However, the late season slump in the 2016 season seems to speak against this. The Ravens mostly ran a five man rotation. Willie Henry, Carl Davis, Kapron Lewis-Moore and Bronson Kaufusi were non-factors. Lawrence Guy is a free agent. While he provided solid, if unspectacular play for the Ravens, having a player like Calais Campbell (if he hits the market) could add first step explosiveness that the Ravens do not have on the interior. Baltimore's pass rush struggled for most of the season. Most of the blame...

Will Tim Williams off-field issues keep the Ravens from drafting him?

Will Tim Williams off-field issues keep the Ravens from drafting him?

Next to Myles Garett, Tim Williams could be the most talented pass rusher in the draft class. His get-off is certainly unmatched by anyone not named Garrett. Though he lacks the upper body strength to be a consistent threat to bull rush, his hand placement is consistent, and his explosiveness does help him convert speed to power. Williams however, is not a clean prospect. Charlie Campbell of Walterfootball.com has reported him potentially having a Randy Gregory-like substance abuse problem, along with various other off the field issues. “Williams likely hurt his draft stock in late...

Maxx Williams will need to breakout in his third year

Maxx Williams will need to breakout in his third year

O.J. Howard is a tantalizing prospect. However, when he is brought up as an option for the draft in Ravens fans circles, the proposition is usually quickly shot down with the depth at tight end given as the reason why Howard would be unnecessary. Representing that depth is Maxx Williams. He was the consensus number one ranked tight end of the class of 2013, and his talent was evident on the tape of Minnesota career. In the pre-draft process, Williams garnered comparisons to Greg Olsen and - perhaps more accurately - to Jason Witten. Williams first season saw him post the best ever numbers...

Questions that the 2017 NFL Combine will answer

Questions that the 2017 NFL Combine will answer

The NFL does not take breaks. The New England Patriots have been crowned champions but there is no rest to take, as the NFL combine will take place in only three weeks. The Ravens will go into it broadly looking at more than a few prospects at more than a few positions. There are unknowns concerning players in the draft class, and the combine will provide answers as regards to prospects the Ravens will be interested in. Will Derek Barnett test well? Barnett's agility drills will settle a lot of the debates that have split the community and made Barnett one of the most polarizing prospects...

Top 5 Ravens related prospects at positions of secondary need

Top 5 Ravens related prospects at positions of secondary need

Wide receiver and inside linebacker could be positions that are looked at if the board permits it. This is not a wide receiver class that will yield multiple superstars. Nevertheless, the Ravens could find the third target the team is now missing following the departure of Steve Smith Sr. Zach Orr's abrupt retirement also leaves a hole at inside linebacker. Kamelei Correa’s lack of experience leaves a question mark at the position, which can lead to believe the Ravens would not pass up an opportunity to add talent, as they had in the case of C.J. Mosley with Arthur Brown on the...

Would Brandon Marshall be good addition to Ravens?

Would Brandon Marshall be good addition to Ravens?

There has been chatter since the beginning of the offseason that Brandon Marshall could be cut from the Jets. On paper, the Ravens seem like a good suitor. Marshall could replace Steve Smith Sr. in the slot, would not count against compensatory picks - that can now be traded - and generally fits the philosophy the Ravens have employed in the past with regards to wide receivers, signing or trading for established veterans. Marshall will bring an element of physicality seen in Steve Smith Sr. and Anquan Boldin. He has made a career out of regularly whipping press coverage into oblivion with...

Ravens defensive line could be even stronger in 2017

Ravens defensive line could be even stronger in 2017

Anybody who has watched the Ravens this season will adamantly state the defensive line as the team's strongest unit. Until the strange December collapse, the Ravens run defense, spearheaded by said defensive line was one of the top in history, per footballoutsiders.com's DVOA measure. If the Ravens re-sign Brandon Williams, the line has the potential to get even stronger. Enter Willie Henry and Carl Davis. Henry spent the year split between the inactive list and injured reserved, presumably taking it as a redshirt. If he develops, he will offer the explosiveness on the interior that the...
