I haven’t fully fleshed this thought out, but it occurred to me today that under Lamar, Baltimore has been the only team that has consistently rushed more than it has thrown, and that if the Ravens were to stick with this strategy it may create a key advantage in the draft, namely that players who are scheme fits for Baltimore may not fit the offensive schemes of most pass heavy teams throughout the league. In some ways this is not dismilar to most of the 2000s where from 2002-2008 or so only three teams consistently ran a 34 defense, Pittsburgh, Baltimore, and New England, which essentially allocated the vast majority of 34 scheme fits across three teams, who not coincidentally tended to have top ranked defenses. Similarly, if the Ravens commit to running this pistol based quasi flex bone scheme they will be drafting players for different attributes than the remainder of the league, which should increase the quality of the scheme fits they are able to draft. I.e. mobile quarterbacks, what I will term slot backs - the Ty Montgomery’s and Cordarelle Patterson’s of the world that lack the shiftiness to be an every down running back and the hands to be a wide receiver but thrive in space, and bigger receivers / undersized tight ends that can block on the perimeter and have sufficient speed to be a threat to run deep. Further, as an outlier offense, the Ravens would play teams every week that are not constructed to stop such a scheme. I believe running such an offense can be a path to long term success but doing so will require a full commitment next off season, such as carrying three mobile quarterbacks, sign free agents who thrived as athletes in college but have struggled to adapt in the nfl, and getting bigger at receiver.
