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.

    • I don’t disagree with anything you said, and I’m grateful you said it. Everyone needs a designated driver. But lemme play devil’s advocate for a moment. This is 60 games. ~12 starts instead of 30. 60 starters instead of 162, and several guys who can start a time or two and not ruin our lives. One trait of greatness is consistency. Over 60, that is less important than over 162. Our starters and our pen appear much superior to the last couple years. Not enough to matter in 162 because the long season takes a toll, And quality-or lack thereof- finds its level, but in 60 games? Sure. And remember the short season doesn’t help the best, because the best doesn’t need the benefits a short season offers. The defense is much better too, unless Nunez is playing third, anyway. so yes I agree with you, but it’s not out of the question.  
    • This was a nice read.  And that's not sarcasm.
    • No qualifying offers this season.
    • If Stroman gets a qualifying offer he would cost the O's their third pick (either the comp pick after round 2 or, if that pick is traded, their third round pick). Jake Odorizzi got a QO this off-season at the same age as Stroman with a less successful career to date. I think it is quite likely that Stroman gets one too.
    • I appreciate Wildcards's enthusiasm and optimism. This season is such a wildcard because of all the variables that really anything could happen and I wouldn't be overly surprised. Saying that, there is no reality where this is the beginning of a sustainable winning core.  There is just as much of a chance of this team losing ten straight games as they do of keep playing .500 ball the rest of this season.  As Drungo has point out, there are some guys who have started out this season way above their carer norms. Even if you believe Severino, Ruiz, Alberto and Nunez are breaking out as they enter their primes, does anyone think Cobb, Milone and Wojo are going to keep pitching to their current ERAs? Cobb maybe since it seems his splitter has come back, but I'm not buying long term sustainability on Milone and Hyde has used Wojo right but not letting him go more than twice through an order. 
    • What does that mean? What's the cost of Wildcard's optimism? Also, I don't think what I said constituted being negative.  That's an honest appraisal of the team.    Not much of what we are seeing looks sustainable.
    • Yea I don’t know that I buy they will spend what it takes but they have very little money committed long term and that is when you can take advantage of it.
