    Baltimore Ravens Discussion

    Discuss the Baltimore Ravens... I'll start with this little theory -

    I'm sure all of you by now, know that Anquan Boldin is a Raven and Ozzie & Co. gave up a 3rd and 4th to get him.

    With that being said, we all know how much DeCosta and Newsome love their draft picks and I know it must be killing them to not have a 3rd and 4th in such a DEEP DEEP draft class, so here's what I think they should do -

    Now that we filled our biggest, most glaring need(WR) it allows us to go BPA, but say that nobody left at 25 is appealing to the Ravens, what if they were to trade down into the early to mid second round picks and acquire a 3rd or 4th in the process? I'd love for them to do that.

    Like most of the Raven fans here, I'm pretty high on Demaryius Thomas, but I don't think he's worth the #25th overall, but if we were to trade down, and get a 3rd or 4th I think it would be a great move for the Ravens, get back some of the picks they lost and STILL get a WR with loads of potential.

    I think a trade down is definitely a possibility this year, since we have so few picks, look out for it on draft day and don't rule it out.

    They have a different wide receivers coach in now though. Engram seemed to do a pretty good job last season aside from the strange semi-regression of Torrey. It's kind of odd that Campanaro had issues with a thigh injury last season and now his quadriceps. That doesn't seem like an area that should be a recurring problem but I'm far from familiar with how that works.

    Regardless I'm actually kind of more intrigued by what Carter could bring to the team as opposed to Campanaro. They're about the same size and type of receiver but DeAndre looks to be more athletic. Where Campanaro is shifty in and out of breaks Carter is explosive. With how strong the draft class was at that position and coming from the Big Sky conference it's not a surprise he wasn't drafted but there's some potential with him. Right now Carter has to take advantage of the return situation, but that could lead to offensive opportunities.

    It seems dating back to Eron Riley and Justin Harper Ravens Nation gets madly in love w/ a late round WR prospect. and only Brown has turned out,

    Is it that bad? I guess we shouldn't pin to much hope on late round guys anyways but I liked him

    Sucks but Camp is just sooo damn injury prone. He has been like this is whole career I don't think we will ever see his true potential.

    Depending on how severe the injury is, he is most likely a PUP candidate, who can be activated if we have difficulties finding a returner.

    Both Asa Jackson and DeAndre Carter should be happy now. At worst, I could see Buck Allen return kicks. He has great vision an balance to fit that role.

    Campanaro could potentially go on IR with a quadriceps injury. That's a bigger blow to the uncertain returner situation than the offense, although DeAndre Carter has a good opportunity to make the roster now. He could make an impact on either area.

    Stover is 4th best.

    I agree, but if Yanda signs a new contract with us and keep up his high level of play, I could see him leapfrog Ngata and some of the old times great Ravens.

    Im not gonna panic yet but I am very concerned the only adjustment Peas makes w/o Smith is push the CBs 3 more yards off of the LOS.

    Oh I definitely agree, but I'm not sure any of those guys have value. The deadline is in a couple of hours and it doesn't seen like anything is brewing anyways.

    Brown was one of my crushes in the 2013 draft, so I am not ready to give up on him. I would trade a Bernard Pierce, Marlon Brown, Jacoby Jones as they all seem replaceable.

    I think the idea would be for any new corner brought in to replace Franks in the long-term even after Jimmy comes back. Jackson will be back in December but none of Baltimore's corners who should be seeing snaps are particularly durable. They really need to find a way (that isn't named Chykie) for Franks not to get on the field anyways. Even disregarding that big play to Sanu he has terrible down-field technique. If I were an opposing offense I'd definitely test him deep early and often.

    Hopefully if Arthur Brown is the bait for a potential trade they get back a cornerback that actually has a future with the team and isn't just an 8-12 game rental. It would be a really bad move otherwise.

    Imo there is no reason to trade for a cornerback, unless it is as a long term solution. A new cornerback would still have to adjust to our scheme and with our bye week coming it, it essentially would be a trade covering 2-3 games.

    Now, how we should play the Steelers with our cornerbacks, I don't know. Webb might be able to shadow Antonio Brown to some extent, but Martavis Bryant is beginning to show his potential and might be a bit too much for Franks already.
