Marquise Brown: A- Elite burner, elite route runner, elite playmaker. No player will unstack the box and take advantage of cheated safeties quite like this guy can. If he stays healthy, he’s likely a superstar on this run first and play action/RPO based offense. I trust lamar to launch one to the corner and let Hollywood run under it far more than I trust him to hit a slower guy with a “big radius” on a fade. After a lot of thought and consideration, I like this pick and it was the best choice. Jaylon Ferguson: C+ The value was there, the need is there, but the skill set is worrisome. He has a first step, he has some hands, he has a vicious bullrush and physical play in general, but he is stiff and lacks bend something serious, and is gonna take a lot of conditioning to hopefully slim down and gain some flexibility without losing his power. High ceiling but risky prospect. My hope is that wink has specific things in mind for him and squeezes every last bit of potential out of him. Miles Boykin: D I don’t hate the player, the player is pretty solid, he’s as sure handed as they come in any catch situation, and his routes are nuanced and subtle but they are there, he could be a really solid Z receiver and possession guy, what I hate is that in a class loaded with 6th round talent, we gave up 2 sixes for a guy who’s talent level, to me, looked a whole round later. C for the player but costing us a 3, a 6, and another 6, the value drops it down to a D. Justice Hill: B+ The track team trend continues. The speed of lamar and brown and hill is jaw dropping, this team is a home run waiting to happen with this trio. Solid value for this pick, fills the need for a speedy scat back to complement the power backs we have, if he gets a pass pro and receiving game more developed then look out. Hill and Lamar and brown in this offense should be a nightmare for DCs. Ben Powers: B+ A lot of people trashed this pick, but it was a good one. We can’t afford to miss on an OL pick, and Powers is about as safe as they come. Low ceiling guy as he isn’t some Uber athlete, he isn’t a road grader, but what he does bring is soundness in all aspects, stout anchor in pass pro, quick feet and lateral movement, great focus and eyes to hold up against stunts and late blitzes, assignment oriented run blocker who can pull, reach, pivot and shield block, as well as mostly anyone in the class. For those that loved Erik McCoy, Ben powers is essentially the same player. The want for a big nasty bastard was overplayed around here, because an athlete and technician who is strong enough to hold up is a bigger tool for Greg roman than a latch-on-and-drive type of blocker. Heady player who could end up a C one day, value is appropriate. Iman Marshall: A+ I’ve seen very little film but I’ve watched him a few times today, and from what I see so far... Great value, I’m struggling to see what put this guy into the fourth. Classic ravens pick, addressing needs ahead of time. We have the best secondary in the league yet we’re addressing cb, and that’s because you need 3 starting caliber CBs and at least 2 competent ones for depth and certain packages. Marshall is an incredibly smooth and fluid man corner with length, he reroutes his momentum with great efficiency, no wasted steps in his transitions, patient in press, catches the route in off man very well with his great hip turn. Classic ravens pick and a steal. Daylon Mack: A+ This is THE ultimate ravens pick. An absolute steal and a dream fit. He has a quicker get-off than any DL on this roster, he is regularly between 2 blockers by the time the rest of the line gets off, he is an absolute wrecking ball and gets a shitload of pocket push, he isn’t the fleetest of foot and isn’t gonna be shuffling and finding a crease in the next gap, but what he will do is put 2 blockers right in the QBs lap regularly and if one those 2 blockers has to chip/pick up another rusher, he’s slipping through. As stated before, between him, Henry, pierce and sieler, were gonna have 2 quality interior rushers. Mack will be a cornerstone on this defense and will get a big 2nd contract from the ravens. Trace McSorley: F What the fuck? Mcsorley was raw ass all throughout his career. He held back a loaded penn state team. There was no fucking need for this, we don’t need a backup for at least a year, you don’t draft in advance for a backup QB. Wasted pick when there was a shitload of talent on the board. Trade the fuck back and get multiple players with talent and a chance to make the team. This was a completely fucking wasted pick. Overall grade C+ If we pretend like the mcsorley pick never happened it becomes a B+ based on average. Overall analysis: the ravens got better with this draft. We found perhaps the biggest offensive playmaker in this class, we found a starting LG who, contrary to popular belief, should be a dream fit in this system of moving parts, we found 2 potential cornerstone players in day 3 at high value positions, we found a spark plug playmaker at RB which was a need, and a high ceiling edge rusher with some risk to him. The real sour part to me was trading up for Boykin when I saw the amount of talent that fell to the sixth. It felt unnecessary to move up for him specifically, and it felt unnecessary to move up for a WR period at that point. But after this draft we’ve plugged a lot of holes with some upside players, we got great value for the most part, and we’re building a strong identity of an ultra speedy run first offense with an exotic block scheme, and defense that’s gonna knock the shit out of you up front and stick to your ass like glue on the back end for years to come, jaylon Ferguson was a player I did not like, but in winks scheme I imagine he could be used pretty damn well, on dimes and nickels and exotic packages, if you put him at the edge and Mack at the 3, you have a really nasty tandem of snap-jumpers with ferocious bullrush. Didn’t love all the players, and while Boykin should be a decent enough player(really I don’t hate the player) I hated the value of his pick, but big picture this draft has me excited. All picks felt like identity picks, like statement picks. Going into this draft we looked totally barren on offense aside from lamar and 2 TEs, and just over 3 days we turned into what looks like a potential powerhouse with a rushing attack like we have never seen before, and our defensive dominance should continue. The browns and Steelers bailed their drafts, but I guarantee you they aren’t excited about what we did this offseason. Favorite pick: daylon Mack.
