Pick 25 ...... WR Marquis Brown 

Marquise was a great choice and should be a dynamic receiver for us. Explosive, quick AND fast, and catches the ball. There are legit size concerns because of the potential to be injured, but I was hoping to hear Goodell say either Marquise or Montez,  and thus I'm happy.

Look at his TDs against Baylor (1:22 of the linked video (He is #5).  The first  one shows his ability to catch a ball near the LOS and do something with it.  The second one is a slant where you really get to see how fast he is.  I am pretty sure there are still scorch marks on the field.

Usually I'm pretty a positive fan but I hate this pick honestly. I'll be rooting for him, just think Sweat or one of the O-lineman were a slam dunk. Loved the trade back. Brown may be good on some screens and slants but we could've gotten a bunch of guys for that in this offense. I'm also very negative about Lamar so that doesn't help my view. Hope it works out but really didn't like the pick at all.

Loved the trade back. Love the pick. I targeted Brown at the beginning of the draft as someone who could be a dynamic playmaker for us. You can get the guy the ball in a bunch of different ways -- jet sweep is a huge play now. Ask the Rams. I think we wanted him all along. There were lots of good players at our pick -- the ASU WR, Sweat, and Brown. This guy is going to touch the ball 10 times per game and he could take it to the house at any time.

One thing I know. You can't teach speed. And he is fast. I like the pick and the trade back. I think DeCosta will trade up to the second round tonight.

I watched him live 2x last year (K-State  2-22) and (OSU 8-142) and I thought he was ok. Kyler was the best player on the field by far. With the Big 12 not playing defense, he was always open. I'm sure his speed has something to do with it. I'm honestly concerned about his 166 lb frame.

We'll see. During the Draft everyone blows smoke.

That is true but it going to cost at least both 3rd rounders and a 4th just to move into the late 2nd round, it would be very unlike the Ravens.

Brown is a home run/deep ball threat. Screens and slants (slot stuff) really isn’t going to be his game. 

I really don’t love it either...I think Metcalf was a better pick if not for the twitter thing.

After looking at a lot of highlights of Brown  I didn't see many  contested catches.  He pretty much blew by people with his speed.   I am glad to see he is very fast AND can catch the ball.   It seems the Ravens already had a guy like that in John 'Smokey' Brown whom they let go.  What does Marquise bring to the table that John Brown does not?

I think you can move up with a 3 and a 4 this year plus a 3 or 4 next.

As the Ravens seem to blow their second round picks I certainly hold onto the picks.

    • Curve Halt Baysox, 7-0 Bowie stays one game back with Erie loss at Harrisburg.   BOWIE, Md. – Sean Brady tossed a complete-game shutout to lead the Altoona Curve to a 7-0 win over the Bowie Baysox in front of 4,973 at Prince George's Stadium Friday night.   Chris Sharpe hit a solo home run off Alex Wells in the fourth inning to break up the scoreless deadlock, while three RBI doubles by Jason Delay, Adrian Valerio and Sharpe sparked a 6-run fifth inning to put the Curve (29-33) ahead 7-0.    A bright spot for the Baysox (41-21) came from their bullpen, which combined to throw 4 2/3 scoreless innings after Wells was removed from the contest. Francisco Jimenez struck out a pair of batters in 1 2/3 innings, while Brian Gonzalez worked through two clean frames. Zach Muckenhirn completed a perfect ninth inning to wrap up a solid relief effort.   The Maryland Crab Cakes make their debut when they and Altoona square off in the penultimate home game at Prince George’s Stadium Saturday night at 6:35 p.m. RHP Michael Baumann (4-2, 2.31 ERA) faces LHP Cam Vieaux (3-3, 2.27 ERA). The first 500 fans (ages 13+) receive a pair of Bay-socks upon entrance at the front gate.
