OLB – Tyus Bowser – Round 2
Baltimore bucked the trend of pass rushers in Round 1, instead going cornerback with Marlon Humphrey out of Alabama. The Ravens slipped into the front-seven market the following round and nabbed Bowser, who still has untapped potential and could be daunting off the edge.
DE – Tim Williams – Round 3
GM Ozzie Newsome landed Williams to make it four consecutive defensive players to open the draft. The Alabama product totaled 18.5 sacks over his final two seasons with the Crimson Tide as he helps the Ravens defense get younger.
WR – Jeremy Maclin – Free Agency
The Kansas City Chiefs turned bold in the offseason, releasing the veteran wide receiver after two years. Maclin’s coming off one of his worst statistical seasons, a 44-catch, 536-yard campaign that he gutted through while nursing an injury. Nonetheless, it’s a good add for the Ravens, who didn’t bolster the skill position through the recent draft.
The Scout’s Take
“There is a perception that they have fallen behind Pittsburgh and Cincinnati in the AFC North and their “window” may be closing. Most of their offseason attention was directed at fixing the defense, especially the secondary, and with the arrival of veteran wide receiver Jeremy Maclin, they seem to feel that the offense will be okay. However, when you watch their film, they look like a middle of the road team without many playmakers — solid organization, average players.” – FanRag Sports’ Gary Horton
