Ravens 1st Round Selection - Marquis Brown

Recommended Posts

This guys highlight real looks awesome.  Too bad he wont have that QB throwing to him.  Not sure why the Ravens drafted him as he wont be a great blocker and that is what he will be doing.

He has great speed to recover Lamar's fumbles.

He can also take a 3 yard slant to the house anytime, soooo

As long as it isn't thrown 3 yards behind him

Why dont all you Lamar haters create a thread to put your terrible, off topic, comments so I dont have to read your BS in other threads when I actually want to read about theplayers that have been drafted.  This is rediculous.

I agree sir! I'm excited to see what Brown can do. I'm concerned about him being undersized.

From USA Today 

 

No. 25 Ravens (from PHI): Marquise Brown, WR Oklahoma

Analysis: The Ravens needed receivers and they got one of the two best receivers in the class. Marquise Brown is known for his speed, but he’s so much more than that. He’s a smart route runner at all levels of the field and he can also make things happen after the catch. Between Lamar Jackson and Brown, NFC North defenses are going to have a hard time keeping up with the Ravens offense. That Baltimore traded down and still landed Brown makes this pick look even better.

GRADE: A

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.

The Ravens have been unable to teach toolsy players how to catch the ball. Brown is known for having good hands. Hopefully he can add 15-20 pounds to diminish the size /durability concerns.

To address his size (Brown 5'9" 166). In 2001 I was interning at Pimloco for the Preakness.  As part of the weekly festivities leading up to the race they had an event at the ESPN  zone and the special guest was Jermaine Lewis.  Jermaine is listed as 5'7", 173 lbs and having met him in person that he was as solidly built as a cinderblock.  The point being these guys are not your normal on the street 170 lbs, they have fat contents of less than 3%.  They have muscle on muscle, and I realize so do other guys but the size doesnt worry me.

Not Raven related but on the topic of player size, I don't believe for a second that Kyler Murray is 5'10''

I think he's closer to 5'8/5'9".

Pro Athletes add more inches to their height than guys on dating sites.  The biggest height adder I saw Hockey player Chris Borque whom claimed he was 5' 9" at one point.  Son of Hall of Famer Ray Borque.  He couldn't be more than 5'4" and I saw him being the same height as another player who claimed to be 5' 5" in Hershey. If he were actually 5' 9" he would have been a heck of a hockey player.  Instead he is 7th all time in AHL scoring.

    • It would be cheaper and possibly more efficient to just buy the Rays.....
    • They will settle for no less than Rendon, Cole and Strasburg out of Cashman. Or maybe a trade for Lindor. 
    • I find Girardi annoying, but I think he was a good manager.    I think Boone has done a good job as well.    Those poor Yankee fans will have to live with 7 playoff appearances, 3 division titles and 4 ALCS appearances over the last decade.     And 27 straight winning seasons.   
    • All Roch said was, “I’d expect another catcher to join the organization, even if for depth purposes.“ I think it’s a foregone conclusion that we’ll add a catcher or two before spring training.    It doesn’t mean that whoever they acquire will slot above the players you named.    That will be sorted out in spring training.   
    • I feel like there were several seasons in the last decade where Girardi got more wins out of that team than he should have.  I can't remember which years, but there were a few.  I felt like he managed every game as if it was Game 7 of the WS, using Betances in every single medium to high leverage situation.  Even in spite of their payroll, there were a few years where the on-paper talent wasn't quite up to their normal standards....yet they still won a lot of games.  I think no matter who is managing, the Yankees will always have their fair share of players who outperform their norms simply by putting on that uniform.  This year was a little more pronounced, but we have seen other sports teams over the years have very high payrolls and still land under .500 because things just don't work out.  I think the 2012 Red Sox lost 90+ games and then won the WS the next year.  The Yankees never finish under .500, no matter what.  That is pretty impressive.
    • Everyone was a fan of Severino when he put up an 818 OPS in the first half.
    • The Surprise Saguaros clinched the AFL West title over the weekend.    It appears likely they’ll face the Salt River Rafters on Saturday for the League title.    If Kremer pitches today, he’ll be available to start the championship game, though I’m not sure he’d be chosen.
