2019 Midseason Draft Report - Nov 02, 2019

It’s the halfway mark of the 2019 season and now is a good time to take a look at how players are performing compared to my pre-draft rankings. Many of my rankings are really close to the actual place the players were taken in the draft (Bosa, Allen, Bush, Murray, Hockenson, Bradbury, Winovich). While there were a handful players that I had much lower on my list, that I would’ve missed on (Daniel Jones, Terry McLaurin. Elgton Jenkins, Darnell Savage, Maxx Crosby, Cole Holcomb, Quincy Williams), we see even more of the top players that I had much higher on ...

Predicting Ravens 1st Round Pick for 5 Years Straight - Oct 10, 2019

Prediction of Ravens First Round Picks for 5 Years Straight

2014 – C.J. Mosley, ILB, Pick #17

The Ravens needed major help at inside linebacker position after Ray Lewis retired following the 2012 Super Bowl title. Daryl Smith was solid, but didn’t have much tread left on the tires at 32 years old. Arthur Brown was drafted in 2013 to be the starting inside linebacker next to Daryl Smith, however he didn’t start in any games as a rookie and only logged 11 tackles and half a sack in 15 games played. It was too early to write him off, ...

Ravens 2019 Draft Grades - Apr 27, 2019

1st Round:

#25 – Marquise Brown, WR – B+

I love the fact that the Ravens traded down from 22 to 25 and received a 4th round and 6th round and still land the player they wanted, so I’m bumping the grade up a bit for acquiring extra picks here. Hollywood Brown is DeSean Jackson 2.0. He has blazing speed that can take the top off of the defense and will stretch the defense at all times, as they have to account for his playmaking abilities. I love the fact that the Ravens are all-in on Lamar Jackson taking the ...

Who I Would’ve Selected With The Ravens Draft Picks - Apr 27, 2019

I want to run a fun experiment to look back on over the next few years to see how things may have looked if I drafted players I liked instead of who the Ravens selected. Last year I said right away that I would’ve drafted Lamar Jackson at 25 instead of Hayden Hurst and not worried about a tight end so early. I liked Mark Andrews more than Hayden Hurst and was happy to land him in the 3rd round and would not have spent a first rounder on Hurst. This move would’ve allowed us to not have to give ...

First Round Grades - Apr 26, 2019

1. Arizona Cardinals – Kyler Murray, QB

Murray is the best quarterback in this draft. He’s the same height and weight as Russell Wilson. In their final college seasons, Murray had 1,200 more passing yards than Wilson, 9 more passing touchdowns, 700 more rushing yards and 6 more rushing touchdowns. Murray has similar accuracy and a stronger arm than Wilson, while also being faster and more athletic. It’s a tough break spending a top 10 pick on Rosen last year, as they will probably only get a 3rd round pick for him at best at this point. Plus, the Cardinals ...

Mock Draft - Apr 13, 2019

Keep in mind that the picks below are based on who I think each team SHOULD take (not who I think they WILL take) based on a combination of best players available and team needs:

1. Arizona Cardinals - Quinnen Williams, DT – Most likely the Cardinals trade away Josh Rosen and then select Kyler Murray at #1. I don’t mind the decision at all, as he’s by far the best quarterback in the draft and the only QB I feel will be a franchise QB for the next decade. But is it too early to give up on Rosen ...

Ravens Draft - Apr 13, 2019

Below are players I think the Ravens should target in each round. The Ravens have a ton of needs to fill going into next year, with the primary positions of need being receiver, left guard, center, defensive end, outside linebacker and inside linebacker. I know the Ravens are going to be a run first offense, but we must get some talent at wide receiver. The idea of going into the draft with Seth Roberts, Chris Moore, and Willie Snead as the starting receivers is just downright ugly and scary. Lamar Jackson must develop as a passer and become more accurate. ...
