John Brown also didn’t have an offseason with Lamar to adjust to his speed to have a better connection. That and John Brown lacked legit toughness. The Oklahoma players seem to be possessed of a lot of toughness so with an offseason to work with Lamar, more speed, more quickness, and I like Hollywood’s chances to be productive.

hes definitely a different type of receiver than what the ravens have drafted in the past. Lets hope he breaks the curse!

Another thing.

Hollywood Brown was a 1st round WR out of Oklahoma in a draft where our original pick was pick#22.

Back in 2005, at pick 22, the Ravens also drafted a WR out of Oklahoma; Mark Clayton.

Now we have elite speed at WR and QB. And it is great that Marquise Brown is a skilled route runner. 

Do we follow that up with getting a quick RB too? Really threaten the defense with speed.

Lamar Jackson, Hayden Hurst, Marquise Brown, and Chris Moore are all Florida boys.

Ty Johnson... fastest RB in the draft

Now that Matt Harmon doesn't have access to college film, I wonder how he makes up those route success charts?  I don't know if his analysis is any better than any other guy that writes scouting reports now

At least he admitted it though. I could see many people in similar situation being dishonest.

I'm curious as to how he goes about it now too.

I know I'm nitpicking on the title of that piece**, but "may"? There is no doubt he has the best film of any wr in this or any of the last few drafts. Again, he was drafted purely on film. He hasn't gotten a chance to workout or run at the combine (where he would have crushed the speed and explosiveness drills). We were told there were a lot of receivers in this draft, and yes there are a lot of names that we could take to check of a box. A lot of guys will go tomorrow that may be decent to good starters. But Hollywood clearly stood out clearly above the rest as a real playmaker.

**I did read the article and the text is more effusive and explicit in its praise
