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?

Please watch the video I posted.

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.

    • Another article on Reed from May 2019.  The first 33 games of 2019 have featured a paltry .205/.282/.410 slash as a 24-year-old in Double-A. An 84 wRC+ despite being slightly older than his average competition in the Texas League. Those numbers often describe a prospect afterthought, especially with most statistical categories beginning to normalize. Yet, a look under the hood suggests Reed is on the verge of a breakout that could make him a hot commodity throughout the prospect community before the end of the regular season. https://prospects365.com/2019/05/18/buddy-reed-and-buying-before-a-breakout/
    • It was a heck of a lot better than 2000-2009.  2012 was a truly great year, and 2014 wasn't bad, either.  And hopefully we look back at '19 as the year we finally got on track to having a top-to-bottom modern organization for the first time since the 1970s.
    • OK, I will exhale now.    Have a great Thanksgiving, Tony, and enjoy your time off!
    • Actually he would have to be up by the beginning of 2024, because he would be out of options at that point, using his three option years in 2021, 2022 and 2023, which could potentially further mess up his development.
    • If you're taking Javier and having him mostly sit the bench or hit .100 for all of 2020 I think you'd be looking at him as the possible shortstop in 2024.  He was miserable in low A last year.  On a normal track he'd probably go back there in 2020.  Instead you'd have him essentially miss the year, just working out with the O's.  You probably put him in Frederick in 2021. Maybe if he's really good he ends the year in Bowie.  Most of the year in AA in 2022.  If things work out well he's in AAA in '23, maybe a late callup.  But being more conservative you're looking at mid-year 2024.  Things could break better, his talent really comes out and he's ahead of that schedule.  But in no way do you expect him to be the MLB shortstop in '22.
    • In my opinion, you are WAY too worried about Mountcastle’s defense.    He’s not some klutz out there.    He has a weak arm.    The fact that he played 3 seasons on the left side of the infield tells you that he has the athleticism to play 1B or COF at a reasonably good level.       As to whether I’d lock him up now at that price, it’s a little tough to say.   If you think he’s likely to be about on the level with a Josh Bell or Trey Mancini, it’s probably worth the risk.    If you think he’s more of a Mitch Moreland level bat, then probably not.       And before people start poo-pooing Mitch Moreland, the guy has had a respectable 10-year career in the majors and had a career .883 OPS in the minors.    Most top 100 prospects would love to have Moreland’s career.
