Undrafted Wide Receivers Have Chance with Baltimore Ravens


Baltimore Ravens fans should remember the names Jeremy Butler and Jace Davis, as there is a good chance you may see one of them playing for the team in the near future. The team did well with Marlon Brown as a an undrafted free agent in 2013, so maybe they can hit the jackpot again with these two players the Ravens signed after the NFL Draft.

Davis and Butler both got a lot of interest prior to the draft; so if many teams were looking, it may demonstrate that these guys have the talent for the NFL.

Butler had 141 receptions for 1,953 yards (13.9 avg.) and 20 TDs in two seasons for the University of Tennessee, Martin. Butler is seen as a possession receiver. He does not have great speed but has good hands.

Davis, from the University of Northern Colorado, is a bit more of an unknown quantity. He caught 44 passes for 673 yards and scoring five touchdowns in 2013 and was a Big Sky All-Conference honorable mention in 2012.  He missed a previous season due to academic issues. The thing that Davis brings to the table is the fact that he may be able to also play running back and defensive back. Sounds like a versatile special teams candidate.
