you're right. Malcom Floyd isn't a true #1 target like Marshall or Jackson. He's more of a complimentary WR, he is just what Joe Flacco needs on the outside. Someone who can go up and do this
If that was Clayton or Mason, that ball is either incomplete, intercepted or overthrown.
Pair him with Mason opposite of him, and throw in Todd Heap working the middle, and possibly Demetrius Williams in the slot. Throw in a high draft pick, I'm hoping Jermaine Gresham maybe? That's not a bad arsenal for Flacco, oh and don't forget the Pro Bowler in the backfield, Ray Rice :) Plus, the o-line will have only gotten better, I love where our offense is headed, regardless of if they pickup Floyd.
Here's a realistic prediction for our depth chart next year -
LT - Jared Gaither - Oniel Cousins
LG - Ben Grubbs
C - Matt Birk
RG - Marshall Yanda/Chris Chester
RT - Michael Oher - Oniel Cousins
TE - Todd Heap - Jermaine Gresham(R)
WR - Malcom Floyd - Demetrius Williams - Kelley Washington
WR - Derrick Mason - Mike Williams(R) - Kelley Washington
FB - Le'Ron McClain
RB - Ray Rice - Willis McGahee
QB - Joe Flacco
4-3 - I don't believe we'll be a full time 4-3 defense, but we will probably see a lot of 4-3 looks.
DE - Terrell Suggs - Antwan Barnes - Paul Kruger
DT - Haloti Ngata
DT - Kelley Gregg
DE - Dwan Edwards - Trevor Pryce - Paul Kruger
WLB - Jarret Johnson - Jameel McClain
MLB - Ray Lewis - Tavares Gooden
SLB - Dannell Ellerbe - Paul Kruger?
CB - Lardarius Webb
CB - Dominque Foxworth
CB - Chris Carr
CB - Myron Lewis(R)
FS - Ed Reed - Haruki Nakamura
SS - Dawan Landry - Tom Zbikowski
Round 1 - Jermaine Gresham TE - Oklahoma - I think he will be another one of those very talented players that slip to the late 1st and look for Ozzie to take advantage just like he did last year w/ Michael Oher. If he was never injured, he is a Top 10 pick.
Round 2 - Mike Williams WR - Syracuse - I think this is a typical Ozzie Newsome pick. A player who had character problems early in their life, and now turning there lives around. (i.e Lardarius Webb) Williams oozes potential and has the talent to be a stud in the league.
Round 3 - Myron Lewis CB - Vanderbilt - I don't know much about Lewis, but he has great size and he is just what we need in our secondary. He was very productive at Vandy and he even has potential at safety. much like Sean Smith of last year?
