  1. 2018 CFB/2019 Draft Prospects

    Yeah, a constant deep threat is still a big need even with the run-first offense. The team has to at least have that threat out on the field and make defenses account for it. That's important. I'm worried about Metcalf's lateral ability though. He's not going to have an easy time breaking off his route and adjust when Lamar starts scrambling. Is that a huge deal? I don't know, but it's certainly something to consider. It would be stunning if DK is available to the Ravens when they draft though so I'm not putting much thought into him. I do like Parris Campbell a lot for the Ravens though. Not at their current pick, but the eventual trade down spot (wherever that lands 8 or so back maybe) would be fine.

    No, not Spain. Hurst would still start over him. I don't think the team is giving up on Lewis yet either. Still really hoping an interior lineman is drafted but I'm not real sure the team sees it as a big need. My point is those guys, or guys in that mold, won't cost much. Shouldn't cost much. Use the cap space on an actual good player like Houston, who also plays a position of need on the team. Bisciotti won''t let the team sit on that cap space for a season, especially when they're going to have a bunch next year even after the roster is filled out. Get good players if they're looking at that spot anyways.

    No. We know now. It's just a matter of doing something about it. The team is looking for a veteran pass-rusher, Zribiec has come out and said it a couple times. If he's not to be believed nobody is, but his track-record is pretty good. Might as well add somebody that's actually good if they're going to get snaps. I don't think Houston will get all of the snaps, there's room for him to sign and both Boweser and Williams to get their deserved time. As for Spain and Nelson... eh, we'll just have to agree to disagree on that one.

    There isn't any free agent worth spending money on at WR or LG/interior offensive line though. Those available are all minimum contract types. Investing in those positions just to invest in those positions would not be good. I want money spent on the BPA at a position of need, regardless of that position. The team isn't going to sit on that cap space.

    That's okay since the Ravens have extra cap space to spare. And with not much else to use it on. I'd expect somewhere around $40 million over three years for Houston.

    Basically as-expected.

    There's a few options. Garrett Bradbury, DK Metcalf, and maybe Josh Jacobs if the signing of Ingram hasn't completely ruled out an early pick at RB. Noah Fant would be interesting if TE wasn't pretty much set for the next three years. I don't think JJAW is a first round pick at this point. Simmons probably would have been the vote winner if he didn't just go to Seattle. Nasir Adderly is really, really enticing even though the team just signed Thomas. Don't think there's a spot for him now. My vote goes for... Bradbury. Need to invest in the interior offensive line and I don't think Metcalf can succeed with the lateral agility of a tree.

    Miller's market will be interesting if the Broncos don't re-sign him. He's going to be 31 for the start of the 2020 season. The money it takes to get him might not be ridiculous.

    I've seen some varying opinions about the state of Baltimore's defense around the web. Most, as expected, are bemoaning the fact that the team has lost (well, jettisoned one) four starters from last year's dominant squad. Fewer, like many of us that watch the team, are actually excited about the changes and think the defense is on the brink of evolution because of them. What does everybody think? I'm definitely in the latter group. The only thing I'm really worried about is losing all those voices on that side of the ball, but bringing in someone like Thomas helps a ton. Fewer cooks in the kitchen can be a good thing too, especially when big changes like this are happening. I'm so, so looking forward to have a defense with enough speed and range to cover side-to-side as well as downfield. It's been a while. If the off-ball linebacker group ends up being a rotation of Young, Onwuasor, and Levine I can hardly wait for the season to start. That's what a modern defense needs to look like. Even if you're going up against a run-heavy attack like the Ravens are going to use. Speed and range kills. There's enough beef on the line to keep the smaller guys behind them clean. Let them be able to flow to the ball. Profit. The upgrade from Thomas to Weddle hardly needs to be mentioned. That's a huge positive leap. And the rest of the secondary is just plain nasty. Besides Jefferson. I have my doubts about him looking much better even in what should be a more palatable role. Why? Because I still think he will be played more like a true safety and less in-box than we'd like. I'll believe it when I see it in that case. But hey, if he struggles I think there's a good chance Clark starts taking more snaps. He's earned them and is losing the prospect/young guy tag. The edge play is probably the biggest question at this point. Losing Suggs' ability to set the edge isn't good and nobody on the roster really replaces that. Nor does any of the current pass-rushers look to have to inside-out/on-line versatility that Smith has. But Williams and Bowser flat-out have the potential to be way more dangerous coming off the edge. Tim has already shown that in limited snaps, and Tyus has too in even more limited snaps. Someone else is going to be added there for more depth. Judon is solid, not spectacular overall and that's fine. A necessary component when taking a chance on two, maybe three, other guys in the rotation that haven't played much. Yeah, I like what DeCosta is doing here.
  10. Ravens Sign Justin Bethel

    This is an interesting one. I like the move, bolstering special teams depth/talent is always useful. Hopefully his contract doesn't cancel out the 4th round comp pick though. I'm inclined to agree with Angus and not consider Bethel a DB or defensive player at all, but like DreamKid said it is a numbers game. The team isn't going to cut a talented corner though. They know better than that and 7 were kept on the active roster all last season if I remember correctly. Smith, Carr, Humphrey, Young, Averett, and Canady are all making it. Maybe Jaylen Hill too. Cyrus Jones could be out, he's nothing special at corner or returner.
  11. Ravens Sign Earl Thomas

    The range, not those two specifically. Lots of numbers taken in there too. 32, 33, 34, 35, 37, 38, 39, 44, 47, 48 are open.
  12. Ravens Sign Earl Thomas

    So he's not taking a number from anybody else. Seems like the nice thing to do.
  13. Ravens Sign Earl Thomas

    I mean, somebody is losing their number. Every 20-something is taken besides 20 itself. Hey now that's an idea...
